The RPG Room: Horror from the 50s and 60s in your game

horror movieThe 1950s and 1960s saw a ton of horror movies that featured monsters of sorts.

Partly because of the social and political climate, partly because of the standardization of colour and advances in technology, movies could create more spectacular special effects that, in some cases, have aged really, really well.

War of the Worlds and Forbidden Planet are two great examples of movies that, even today, look really amazing and, time considerations aside, still look incredible.

And yet, those movies tend to be the least scary of them all. At least for me. Perhaps because, despite how good they can look, I can only suspend my disbelief for so long.

In this episode, Rob and I talk about those movies, what make them scary and how they could be used to add a dash of horror to your adventures.
