6 Iconic Horror Moments That Appeared Later Than You Think

There are few sacred lore in cinema like the horror movie sequel. The first movie is scary, refreshing, and groundbreaking, and now that it’s made so much money, it’s time to try to replicate its success until the wheels fall off. In long chains especially, some of the elements that made them famous tend to work a little together. Was it pre-installed from the start, or did it pop up somewhere along the way and was just accepted by the public as gospel?

What aspects are there in the original recipe, which came later to spice things up? It’s time to dive into this question regarding iconic parts from six lengthy horror series – parts that may have appeared to have been a body script but were in fact not included until a little later.

The iconic walk of Frankenstein’s monsters

Frankenstein films were the bread and butter of the golden age of global horror, with two great James Will films (Frankenstein And the frankenstein brideVery solid course starring Basil Rathboneson of frankenstein) and then the rapid descent into cheaper and more effective efforts. Boris Karloff, who played the titular monster in the first three films, gave a thoughtful, tragic performance, so it’s a little strange that the iconography that has survived is the image of a man with his arms raised, clumsily navigating between sets of castles.

This iconic image of the character wasn’t set until the final moments of the fourth movie, Frankenstein’s ghost. (Quick recap: The brain of the monster, played here by Lon Chaney Jr. has been replaced by his accomplice Ygor’s, played by Bela Lugosi with a rowdy malice. This allows him to talk and plot, but thanks to a medical accident, he’s beautiful who is instantly shown as blind.) The beast’s last few minutes of flick groping and then, in the sequel, Frankenstein meets the wolf manAppears with outstretched hands.

In later movies, no one mentioned that he’s blind now, whether it was in his fight at Wolf Man or Frankenstein’s house or Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein. So the timeline-defining career of Frankenstein didn’t just happen until the end of the fourth movie, but it’s part of a plot point that no later movie could be bothered to remember.

If there’s any item on this list that’s been logged into the horror trivia event logs, it’s this item. at first Friday 13Jason’s mother, Pamela, who wears a jacket, does the killing. In the second movie, Jason finally appears, but he’s wearing a dress and a burlap sack over his head. In only the third movie, he stole a comic character from a hockey mask and decided it this appearance that must be preserved. Since then, Jason has been irrevocably linked to this particular mask, which has come to represent the slant genre as a whole.

However, it’s still important to talk because this omnipresence diminishes Rad Jason’s appearance Part 2. Slender and unkempt, Jason feels a bit like the guy who would actually be hanging out in the woods outside summer camp rather than the brand name he evolved into. Pleasure is also the relative lack of scythe Part 2 – Jason’s general toolkit is very diverse here, and the weapon he uses in peak is a bloody valentine-esque axe.

Godzilla as a good man

When Godzilla appeared in the original 1954 movie, the atomic nightmare was embodied. It is the death and mass destruction of a nuclear holocaust resurrected in the form of an unstoppable creature, a being that cannot be understood or explained as it threatens Japan with the fires of hell. And then, in 1955 Godzilla raids againHe’s mostly wrestling with another monster and taking things down. This first part will set a model for the majority of Godzilla movies going forward – Godzilla is the heavyweight champion in the kaiju division, and one ready to talk to all the contenders.

Although Godzilla fought other monsters, that didn’t mean there was a role reversal at the moment something else wanted to throw it. In the first four films, Godzilla is an unmistakable idiot, not an advocate for Japan and more like a terrible landlord who comes to evict any new monster tenants. In the third film, King Kong is given an unspoken high moral standing, in the fourth film, Mothra and her young ones symbolize the beauty of nature, while Godzilla symbolizes the beauty of what things look like when they are on fire.

Not until the fifth movie, Ghidorah, the three-headed beast, that Godzilla, who is now forced to cooperate to confront an extraterrestrial dragon, is actually transformed into hero status. And change doesn’t come without prompting – one of Mothra’s caterpillars from the last movie has to lure Godzilla into being friendly for a change. Moving forward, the big lizard should only hope that Japan has forgotten the entire “becoming death” stage.

Freddy Krueger

Freddy Krueger, the dream-infesting villain from Elm Street’s nightmare Serial, he was always a cute brat. From the beginning he loved torturing people and by Freddy’s revengeHe also clearly has a strong sense of sarcasm. Does the character have an interest in bicycles? Freddy will crush them with a wheel while yelling “I’d better pump the brakes!” Personal with a drinking problem? Freddy drinks them with a toothpick and swallows them into a giant martini while winking at the crowd: “Drink responsibly!”

You found the idea.

It wasn’t always that big. Freddy’s embrace of puns only became a defining part of his personality Dream WarriorsThe third movie. Here nearly every Freddy’s kill comes with some sort of wordplay or one line, turning him into an equal parts slasher and late-night host. It fits naturally, with actor Robert Englund being one of the few horror stars who is skilled at every stage of his character’s development.

Pinhead name

Pinhead is a one-hole horror design – no notes needed. He’s instantly iconic, which makes it all the more interesting that there was no real name associated with him when he joined the gods Freddy, Jason and Michael. He is anonymous in the original novel by Clive Parker, hell heart, and the first movie credited him with the nickname “Lead Cenobite,” a title that probably didn’t look good on the posters. Parker later referred to him as “The Priest of Hell,” because he didn’t really like the name Pinhead.

So where did “Pinhead” come from? Appears in the highly underrated credits Hellbound: Hellraiser IIBut the first time anyone calls him Pinhead happens in the third movie and the name is kind of a joke. But she stuck, and luckily, in the 2022 reboot, the character manages to regain a bit of dignity. (They are now known simply as “the Priest.”)

Leatherface name

Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 This is a dark comedy and a brutal comic, taking anything that might seem cryptic in the original and raising the volume to deafening levels. In short, it’s beautiful, and you realize you can’t really beat the horrific dread of the original. Returning director, Toby Hopper, isn’t even trying to let his favorite clan of cannibals turn into a free self-parody. It also gives them names: Activists. get it?

If you’ve only seen the original, it was released 12 years ago Part 2, and that name sounds unfamiliar, and for good reason – no one really had a name in the first movie. “Bubba Sawyer” from the sequel is only referred to as “Leatherface” there, and oddly enough, “Cook” (or “Old Man” as he is referred to in the text) asks Leatherface, “Why didn’t you wait for Bubba?” apparently referring to his brother who It moves from one place to another. If you haven’t heard it before, I don’t blame you – it can barely hear above all the screaming.

But this brother was never referred to as “Bubba” again in the 1974 original, as the name was passed on to Leatherface himself through the sequel, with the now-deceased brother named “Nubbins” Sawyer. Now, it’s possible the cook calls him “Babba” as in “your brother,” which is common Southern slang, but it’s funny in the context of the wider series. Sawyer’s last name was carried over to the third movie, but in the fourth, the family is now known as the equally outspoken Slaughters. Look, it’s America’s richest historical record of eating meat from Texas. This kind of thing is important.
