Time travel is a trope in horror that involves a character or a group of characters who travel to the past or the future, either intentionally or accidentally. Time travel can create paradoxes, alter history, or unleash unforeseen dangers. Time travel can also be used to explore themes of fate, free will, and the unknown. Which can lead to interesting avenues to explore horror concepts.
Time travel is inherently linked to science fiction tropes, so genres and tropes in horror movies and stories that involve time travel often align with other science fiction horror tropes.
