European Horror vs. Modern Day Horror

You have to give it to European filmmakers.  They might not have always made effective horror films, but they usually always tried to inject some style or subtlety into them.  I’m not saying that they weren’t capable filmmakers.  They were, but they just didn’t always quite hit the mark when it came to something that would scare or disgust an audience.  Some managed to pull it off, but others fell by the wayside.  Filmmakers like Jean Rollin and Jess Franco were two of those hit or miss type filmmakers.  Both men were more interested in pushing sexuality in their films while the framework wasn’t given as much attention.  It all goes hand in hand with where you come from and what your passion is as a filmmaker.
