Do you think Horror Vids are actualy Scary?

I don't think you can have a 'scary' Horror AMV, because of the music you're using. Sure... you can take the "thrilling music" from a horror soundtrack, but who would want to watch such an AMV?

I only ever did one "horror" AMV and I don't think it's scary...
I think it's just moody.

The best Horror AMVs are going to capture the mood of horror... but are probably not going to be scary.

No I don't think they're scary, I think they're funny. But, things will change with my horror video.

Does being locked in a room with a TV playing non-stop Linkinball Z vids count as horror? "Cause that's f@ckin scary.

Some say my <a href="http://www.animemusicvideos.org/legacy/video.php?v=4097"> Lost Angels</a> video is spooky.


I think it's mainly the song as Angel Sanctuary wasn't that scary.
The AMV is pretty dark tho.

Well, take MJ's "Stop Mocking Me!" That was "Perfect Blue" done to Devo! You wouldn't necessarily put those two together. Sure, it's pretty funny to watch, but they're also a haunting side to it.

i personaly think a video CAN be scary but at the same time, they dont have to. it all depends on the song really. like Kevin Caldwell's Sleep Now video, and Joes Sleep|Lain video's are really creepy to listen to. but i personaly think its called horror b/c of the atmosphere the video itself trys and creates, the video it self doesnt have to be like "soft slow music then WHAM! and it scares the hell out of u" i just think its the atmosphere of the video overall.

They don't seem scary to me. They still classify as horror though, just as all those low budget B-movies are horror but fail to frighten.

Actually, I found Kevin Caldwell's Magnetic Rose/Phantom of the Opera video incredibly scary. Despite plans to archive it to CD, I don't think I'll be touching that one anytime soon.

Then again, I'm a wuss.

I saw a memories video at awa that was pretty creepy. It won best horror I think.

I think it's definately possible to make an amv thats scary, I've even contemplated giving it a try a few times, never had any real solid ideas though.

:D The video is This one. It won't be up for download until after the release of the Animasia project though.

As far as making a AMV that is actually frightning I think you have to define your terms. Do you mean a video that will suprise you? make you feel uneasy? I belive that it is possible (as an example I would give "Haunted" by burntoast) it is just extremely dificult because any flaws ruin the mood and therefore the suspense.
