A dark page in history.
The plots of the most popular horror films sometimes fade before what is impossible to write a script that is our life. It is enough to look at history to understand how diverse and sometimes frightening world we live in.
Since the creation of the first photograph nearly 200 years, and during that time technology has made a lot of images impartially locking wide variety of events. And in these photos can’t always show happy or joyful moments.
