The MCU Just Beat Raimi’s Horror Record Before Doctor Strange 2

The off-screen gunfire, mangled screams of terror, and heavy footsteps approaching a mysterious figure are true horror tropes, and executed beautifully. Leaving the audience, and Steven and Layla, in the dark about what’s to come heightens the tension for the next gruesome scene where the undead guardian punishes Harrow’s goon for his trespass. There’s no background music or score to drown out the sounds of the knife cutting through skin, or the masses of gurgling blood coming from the body (ironically, like a Raimi horror movie), showing that the MCU doesn’t really isn’t holding back from exploring the horror genre in full force. The camera also doesn’t shy away from showing the undead warrior pouring the goon’s organs into jars, showing just enough to make the moment horribly gruesome. When the creature discovers that Layla and Steven are hiding, its movements oscillate between creepingly slow and blisteringly fast, so its next move is unpredictable. His hands crawl and crawl under the boards Steven is standing on, then in the next scene he appears so quickly to grab Layla in the dark that he can most definitely be ranked as the MCU’s number one scare.

In such a short scene, moon knight hits so many classic horror staples; the screams of terror, the protagonists hiding from the monster, the classic jump scare, and so this definitely counts as the MCU’s first horror experiment. At Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will most likely address some of these elements as well, and in particular will be the first MCU movie to feature horror front and center. However, the terrifying tomb scene in moon knight just broke the record.

The offscreen gunshots, mangled cries of terror, and heavy approaching footsteps of a mysterious silhouette are true tropes of horror, and executed wonderfully. Leaving the audience, and Steven and Layla, in the dark about what is coming builds up the tension for the next gruesome scene where the undead guardian punishes Harrow’s goon for his trespassing. There is no background music or score to drown out the sounds of knife slicing skin, or the gurgling masses of blood coming from the body (ironically, like a Raimi horror movie,) showing that the MCU really isn’t holding back from exploring the horror genre in full force. The camera doesn’t shy away from showing the undead warrior slopping the goon’s organs into jars either, showing just enough to make the moment stomach-turningly gruesome. When the creature discovers Layla and Steven hiding, its movements fluctuate between creepingly slow and lightning-quick, so its next move is unpredictable. Its hands creep and crawl up beneath the floorboards on which Steven is standing on, and then in the next scene, it appears so quickly to grab Layla into the darkness that it can most definitely classify as the MCU’s first jump-scare.
In such a short scene, Moon Knight hits so many classic horror staples; the screams of terror, the protagonists hiding from the monster, the classic jump-scare, and so it definitely counts as the MCU’s first experimentation with horror. Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will most likely also touch on some of these elements, and specifically still be the first MCU film to feature horror front and center. However, the terrifying tomb scene in Moon Knight has just beaten it to the record.
