Home Theater Upgrades Ideal for Horror Movie Lovers
Fans of horror movies know how important the atmosphere is when watching a scary movie. Watching a horror movie on a cell phone screen while you ride a city bus is a major difference than a darkened movie theater. If you have a dedicated home theater, learn about upgrades and features that will improve the horror movie experience.
Each element improves the experience, and all the upgrades blend together to create the ultimate horror movie home theater experience.
Blackout Curtains and Blinds
Watching a horror movie at night is naturally scarier. The darkness brings a lot of unknown and will draw all of the focus directly to the movie screen. Keep your home theater dark for every horror movie screening with blackout curtains and blinds. Typically, you would choose one of the two options to block out light.
For smaller windows, a small set of curtains will easily cover the glass. Blackout blinds provide full coverage over larger windows in a home theater. Ideally, you want to install automated blinds and connect them to smart house controls. When you want to watch a movie, you can press a button to have the blinds automatically shut and block out the light.
Wireless Surround Sound Speakers
Sound is an essential part of horror movies. From classic movie soundtracks like Jaws to tiny details and jump scares, proper sound can really enhance the way you enjoy horror movies. Wireless surround sound speakers will provide you with the sound original filmmakers intended.
For example, if there’s a loud bang on the left side of the screen, you will hear the noise from the left speaker. If a character explores a dark wooded area, you will hear the sounds of branches snapping or creatures of the night. The subtle differences will change the way you enjoy horror movies.
Wireless speaker installations can include unseen speakers that blend naturally into the environment. Smart controls allow you to quickly adjust the volume and change the speaker settings.
Along with optimal sound, you may want soundproofing options. When focused on the scares and thrills of a horror movie, you don’t want outside noise creating a distraction. Soundproof panels will block outside noise, and home theater technicians can choose specific locations to provide the best acoustics in the room.
You also want soundproofing to keep the horror movie sounds inside the home theater. Loud screams, scary monsters, and ominous music can easily escape a home theater without proper soundproofing. The last thing you want is to have neighbors walk by your home only to hear a character’s bloodcurdling scream or another violent scene from a movie.
The soundproofing panels absorb the sound and keep everything contained within the home theater.
Direct Streaming Connections
Access thousands of horror movie options with some direct streaming connections. Home theater technicians can connect streaming boxes directly to your home theater for easy access. A direct internet connection can provide more stable data connections for HD and 4K streaming.
Many of the major streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime offer horror movie options, along with dedicated horror movie networks like Shudder and Screambox. Once the streaming options are connected, you can use smart home technology to search for movies and quickly load up titles you want to see.
Smart technology allows you to make a playlist of titles you want to watch so you can easily load up a new movie without wasting extra time as you search for options.
