Taking The Color Out Of Horror...Part 5

So here's another post in which I remove the color from a horror film, essentially changing it to a black and white film.  Monochrome is so incredibly atmospheric, and sometimes it adds a lot to a picture that is otherwise mundane.   Shadows are ever-present, darkness looms around every corner, and things that didn't seem too scary in color take on a whole new vibe when in black and white.
Even films which are famous for amazing use of color (as in many Argento films) can be changed into a completely different movie by just the absence of hues.  In any event, I love the way they look!

As I've done this type of post four times before, you may want to check out those links:

The black/white really does change the mood of it, very creepy! Especially for Sinister & that was a movie I didn't care for.
