Last month, Brazilian film critic and independent film editor Diego Carrera published "History of Horror," which he describes as a "timeline of influential and aesthetically beautiful horror movies around the world." Picking one scary movie from each year, the video essay opens up with 1895's The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots, and ends with 2016's The Witch, classics like A Trip to the Moon (1902), Nosferatu (1922), Night of the Living Dead (1968), Jaws (1975), Carrie (1976), Alien (1979), The Shining (1980), The Ring (1998), and The Conjuring (2013) sitting in-between. While Carrera wasn't necessarily aiming to create a definitive "best of" list, picking one film from each year is sure to stir up some controversy, so check out the video below and sound off in the comments about what he got right and wrong.
