Scary movies are nothing new, but films like those in the Saw and Hostel series have offered something different: They focus less on the suspense of the chase and more on the suffering of the victim, leading some to dub them "torture porn."

In the 1950s, James Blish would picture Soviet victory on Earth translating to Russian becoming the language of the galaxy in his "Okie" novels, from Even where humanity was genuinely united in the effort, Russian personnel tended to be prominently featured on the team , e.g. King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table He saw no sign of a trail through the closely knit web of weeds and trees; it was easier to go along the shore, and Rainsford floundered along by the water.
