Though nothing can bring back the hour 
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
          We will grieve not, rather find
          Strength in what remains behind;
          In the primal sympathy
          Which having been must ever be;
          In the soothing thoughts that spring
          Out of human suffering;
          In the faith that looks through death, 
In years that bring the philosophic mind 
-W. Wordsworth

Subject: [SCREEN-L] Photography in horror films
To: [log in to unmask]

> Dear list members,
> This is a question for horror film buffs: we are
> currently trying to compile a corpus of horror films in which
> photography is used in order to show things that are invisible to the
> naked eye. Examples would be The Omen, in which smudges on photographs
> foreshadow the deaths of the people in the picture, or Shutter, in
> which photos reveal the presence of a ghost.
> Can anybody think of horror films featuring photographs or 
> photographers? We would greatly appreciate your help!
> With many thanks in advance and best wishes
> Dorothee and Michael
> PS: Other films that already came to mind were Ring, The Shining and 
> The Asphyx.
