Growing up, I was constantly immersed in the worlds of Tolkien, Terry Brooks and Goodkind, George R. R. Martin, and David Eddings. These fantastical stories all lived within a setting reminiscent of our own historical Middle Ages. The sword and sorcery playing out between kings and castles. Good and evil constantly at odds, often with an air of the unnatural. So it should come as no surprise that many of us who love our knights, also love our nightmares. The horror genre plays with the exact same tropes: a valiant hero against impossible odds. Surprisingly, we don’t often see a large crossover between the two genres, but it does happen. Behold! Five films that have the best of both worlds.
