Hollywood tours do it right, and they do it right for a reason. People want to see where their favourite movies were made, walk the streets their favourite characters walked, and do iconic things in the movies such as having a breakfast croissant outside Tiffany and Co in New York and visit the Hobbitshire while in New Zealand.

We've looked at the best characters of the classic horror movie archetypes of the "Final Girl", the "Slut", the "Brain" and the "Fool", and this leaves us with only one classic character left - the "Jock".

The late 70's, 80's and 90's completely reinvigerated the horror genre with a big change in the game. Unlike the supernatural creatures with the heart of gold that dominated the silver screen of the 1930's to the 1950's, these new faces of horror were bloody, brutal, and undescriminate.
