I don't care for Horror films to be honest, I've never watched the Freddie, Jason, Halloween and all that. I just don't see how they can be scary because it's my understanding that they are more slash flicks than anything. I think horror films, well the bulk of the ones I've watched that have been billed as 'scary', just aren't and they come off as cheap and samey.
I'm going to see Crimson Peak on Friday, I know I won't be scared I'm just hoping to see a good film.
What horror films I think are good aren't scary they are just good films if that makes sense, I've watched a decent number of horror films and the ones I enjoyed, I enjoyed because I found them interesting, they didn't go for cheap thrills, killings just isn't scary anymore, people are largely desensitised to it and showing blood isn't scary. Films that rely on them just can't be scary to modern movie goers anymore, but doesn't mean you can't tell a good story.
