In the 21st Century, horror movies have changed dramactically. They are much more inclusive, have improved on their special affects massively and the use of technology as a whole has changed everything about horror movies. Whereas in the past, the main character might be lost in the woods, with no way to call for help, now she can use her phone to get rescued. Movies have tried to include the new technologies, making them part of their story. They have had to move with the times, to make the story more realistic and to add new dangers for the characters to face.
Filmmakers have also been taking into account social trends and issues that are affecting people today. It is important that they keep listening to the public and improving as they progress. It will be interesting to see what movies will look like in ten, twenty or even fifty years time and it will be interesting to see if horror is still popular, although I believe it will always be a popular genre.
