LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED: GREAT HORROR/THRILLER FILM OPENINGS

There is something immensely satisfying about a movie that starts strong, with a powerful opening scene. That is doubly true with horror movies, where the opening is responsible for creating the film’s atmosphere and racking us up for the terror to come. Some films even manage to make their opening credit sequences memorable (hell, the opening sequence from Se7en acts as a short horror film by itself). Here are some impressive introductions that have stayed with me since first viewing them, sometimes even eclipsing the movies they are from…

Suspiria (1977)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

A History of Violence (2005)

Cube (1997)

Ghost Ship (2002)

Dawn of The Dead (2004)

Se7en (1995)

The Appointment (1981)
