Subject: [SCREEN-L] Photography in horror films

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.
