This category is for links to specific movie serials and sites with general information on the Serial genre or film style.
Serials were short adventure films that continued over several chapters or episodes in order to entice the audience back to the theater the next week. The serials came to be known as "cliffhangers" because the hero or heroine would face inescapable peril at the end of each episode only to be miraculously rescued at the beginning of the next one. This genre of film style started in the silent movie era, with the classic serials produced in the 1930s and 40s and ending in the 1950s.
Sites devoted to specific films should be submitted to the appropriate letter category under Arts/Movies/Titles.
