Navigate horror with this creator’s genre subway map
Less than a hundred days to Halloween so check out all of these horror hits!
We love a good infographic here, especially one that helps us understand film and television better. That’s why we were so happy to find you Diogo Brüggemann‘s “Horror Subway Map” on Twitter.
MAPA DE METR DE FILMES DE TERROR 2021
Quem diria que fazer uma mapa de metrô com mais de 300 films de mais de 20 países ao longo de mais de um século de cinema seria tão difícil? Eles estão separados por linhas que representam subgêneros de terror (conforme legenda). + pic.twitter.com/30UWNPI6LH

This is such a creative way of looking at horror and all of its subgenres. Each subway “line” is a type of horror film broken down into subgenres including psychological horror, supernatural horror, monster horror, killer horror, and gore horror. The lines become even more specific. Do you want some body horror? The orange line is for you. Do you fancy zombies? Get on the lime green line.
The “stops” on each line are a prominent film within this sub-genre.

Another brilliant thing the creator did here was to show overlap in genres for multiple films, so a film like The exorcist falls on the lines of fanaticism / religion, property and devil / hell.
The movies aren’t in chronological order, but this could definitely provide a literal map for anyone looking to work their way through some of the best horror films of all time. We applaud the creator’s hard work in putting it together!
Time to sit on the couch and see a little.
