Jordan Campbell Film C392 10/17/13 Dr. Subramanian The People Next Door: Weird or Normal, They’re All Crazy Though horror movies are often seen as mere exploitations of grisly violence and sexual perversion, they have the potential, when done right, to make important commentaries on society. One of the major themes in horror films is that of the disturbed human psyche and the perverted moral compass of such individuals. Some people in the world are surely under the impression that their homes are located in a normal neighborhood alongside people who are just as ethically sound as they are. Horror films are out to prove that these people can be dead wrong, and potentially just dead if they don’t keep on their toes. Two films that sufficiently depict this subject are Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby and Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre . In both of these films the main characters find themselves initially comfortable in their own lodgings only to find that the people next door have malicious intent towards them.
