Yep you heard it here first. Do you remember how horror movies scared the crap out of you in your youth? I sure do and the Universal films of the 1930s scared the poop out of me back then and they still do actually. The last movie made that was truly scarey, in my opinion, was The Haunting (1963) but everyting since have been yawners, no offense to the Halloween and Freddy movies. They just don't cut it as far as scaring me. I like gore and a monster jumping out unexpectly as much as the next person but most of the horror movies of the last 50 years seem so vanilla I can hardly stand it and I have seen them all. Gore and special effects are cool in there own right but they they do not always translate into scarey.
Am I farting into the wind like always or is there some way I can convince Hollywood to make truly scarey movies like they once did?
