There are many types of horror stories (including those dealing with: ghosts, vampires, zombies, lunatics, etc.) and various manners of presenting those stories in film; movies can be conservative / straightforward, extreme, campy or surreal. But no matter the style of the film, many aspects of its production contribute to creating a solid effect on audience members. Moreover, the soundtrack of a horror film is just as important in establishing atmosphere as the lighting, the photography or the direction.
