I think either works depending on the director.

28 Days Later is not a zombie film.
I hate the idea of running zombies, it takes away whats frightening about them.
Slow zombies are scary because they are slow, stupid and easily beaten, as long as you out number them.
You can run away from zombies, they will follow you. You can push them over but they will get back up and before long you WILL find yourself trapped by them.
What makes them scary is the fact that they will get you, they don't get tired, they don't give up. You will have to rest, they don't.

It's not technically a horror movie, but playing the game Amnesia: Dark Descent has resulted in many pairs of soiled undies.

Holy hell yes! I have woken up the family in the middle of the night letting out full throated and bloodcurling screams at that game. And yet when you think about it, the game doesn't seem like it should be that scary. BUT IT IS! The sounds, the pacing, the lighting, everything in that game is designed to get you wired and freaked out so even minor things happening freak you out and when something big happens, yeah...... word of warning: you may need to change your underwear playing that game.


As for movies, the only one that has freaked me out really was Paranormal Activity. I grew up in an ultra religious home in which that kind of thing was a very real possibility and the idea of it terrifies me to this day (it would for you too if you had been told shit like that since birth). Zombie movies freak me out as well but I love them because of it. In general however I find horror movies fairly lame and boring and HIGHLY predictable. Torture porn does nothing for me, same with slasher flicks (although they can be humourous to watch). I like movies that scare with story and such, not cheap buckets of blood and things leaping out to high pitched music.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I've always preferred the subtle horror films myself. Blood and gore isn't scary.

All of my favourite horror movies have been listed here, but I don't mind the Supernatural TV series. Well, seasons 1 and 2 at least. Haven't seen past that.
