Plundering the Genre: A Halloween Tribute to Horror in Cinema Part 2

The following montage is compiled from a selection of motion pictures that have included some noteworthy moments of horror throughout the years. None of the entries are repeats of last year's montage here. This year, the net has been cast a little wider. Not all of the films referenced are as highly recommended as those in Part 1, although there are some truly remarkable entries like The Innocents and Wake in Fright. The music from Dracula (1992) is by Wojciech Kilar. The list of stills selected is printed below in the order they are presented. The sum of both parts is still far from definitive. A link to Part 3 is here. *Note: Some of the images may be disturbing.
