While almost every horror movie relies on the dark to assist in its scares, some take on the challenge of presenting their spooky scenes in broad daylight. When done well, this can create a much more disconcerting environment.
One factor that makes horror movies scary is the notion that what's happening on screen could happen in real life, and when the events take place in the middle of the day, it’s much easier to imagine them happening to you.
Horror movies may traditionally take place at night, but disarming the audience with daylight, then horrifying them to their core with an unexpected scare can be too good of an opportunity to pass up. These sunny scenes that cause nightmarish dreams pop up in both classic and modern horror flicks, and the films below contain some of the best examples.
