Horror Theme List: Elevators and Dumbwaiters

List of Theme Lists

Inspired by the Letterboxd users who make lists of themes of horror films, this one in particular is about scenes in horror films in which a character uses an elevator or dumbwaiter in/to some/any capacity. Including nameless / faceless non-supporting extras in the background. Or, if it's involved in a character's death- if an elevator or dumbwaiter is mentioned in the dialogue during a moment of terror.
