One of the most common things that you don’t see in horror movies on TikTok are jump scares. This is because a jump scare relies on an element of surprise and suspense, something that cannot be effectively used within the format of a short video format such as TikTok. Additionally, horror movie directors often use music or sound effects to increase the feeling of fear or anxiety, which is not always possible on TikTok due to copyright restrictions.
Another thing you won’t find in horror movies on TikTok are graphic scenes. Due to the platform’s policies against violence and depictions of harm, any explicit visual depictions must be toned down significantly compared to what would be seen in a feature-length film. As such, it can be difficult for filmmakers to convey their narrative effectively with only mildly frightening images or by focusing more intently on plot points than delivering visceral thrills at every turn.
Finally, there’s also the issue of duration; while some longer videos may find success within this platform (as this last year has proven), usually these videos require special attention from users due to their length – limiting viral potential significantly when compared against shorter clips typically used for horror films and television shows. Thus far it seems that horror fans have yet to decide if they will shift onto more platforms like YouTube for exclusive viewing experience – but until then it looks like we’ll just have continue searching elsewhere for our fix!
