Horror films have been around since the 19th century, with Le voyage dans la lune director Georges Méliès Le Manoir du Diable (The Devils Castle) premiering in 1896.
The Film Forum recently hosted a screening of David Lynchs Blue Velvet in honor of the 20th anniversary of the films release. A Lynch screening draws a crowd as eclectic as one of the directors films. Punks love Lynch.
