What are the scariest horror comics that should be made into a movie?

Johannes Gelilang - Contributor

Since the foundation of the cinema, it has already undergone a lot of changes. And it seems that the dynamics will still go through more tweaks as time passes by. In 20th century cinema, movies based on comic books are a subject not explored that much. There were a few who attempt to bring our beloved comic book superheroes to life on the big screen. It includes Christopher Reeve's portrayal of Superman, as well as Tim Burton's Batman film. However, it wasn't until 1998 when comic book adaptations started to become a highly-anticipated phenomenon.

Back in 1998, Stephen Norrington directed the American superhero horror flick Blade based on David S. Goyer's script. It starred none other than Wesley Snipes. The titular character, as well as his alter-ego Eric Brooks, became one of the most notable roles of the actor. Despite the mixed reviews from critics, the film became a commercial success. It grossed a whopping $70 million from the United States box office alone and $131.2 million worldwide. Unlike the critics, Blade was well-received by the general audience and has had a cult following. The movie was also considered groundbreaking, as it has paved the way for further comic books to movie adaptations. Without it, we wouldn't have the Marvel Cinematic Universe that fans have been geeking about. But as you can see, all we have right now are superhero films. Isn't there at least a little chance for horror comic books to become a motion picture? If there is, then our list of the scariest horror comics that should be made into a movie can help filmmakers for their next project.
