This chapter presents the author’s personal reflections on having been a fan and a scholar of horror films. It outlines the difficulties in narrativizing the history and development of a genre as rich and varied as this one, and also reiterates, in the context of one specific film and specific historical events of the last ten-odd years, the continued cultural significance of horror films as a form of cultural expression.
