I think horror movies generally are dead, but games however, thats a different story.

I will definitely agree with that. Since last week, I've watched Pandorum, Cabin in the Woods and plan on watching Wolf Creek tonight. I've also watched the first of each of their series of Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween (the original), and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The gore was certainly there, but, so we're the laughs. I see what @ntaw was talking about.
Honestly, I think there is more of actual horror in novels than movies. Still, I'd like to see someone make a good on screen version of H.P. Lovecraft's work.

It's not like the man wrote expansive books of one continuous story like some Fantasy, Sci Fi, and Crime authors do. Most of his work could be done in a single two hour film for his longer stories and as compilation films for some of his shorter stories. What would be cool is to have like a three hour film with multiple short stories like The Statement of Randolph Carter and others. I've seen a couple Twilight Zone episodes that were obviously based on his work, but, just didn't get the treatment that they may have deserved.

Well, borrowed it from a friend, returned it, and bought it at Half Price Books on my way home.

I'm honestly in the same boat as you, sci fi and action were my go to genre growing up but mu sister was a horror fan so i saw mu fair share of duff b horror movies. Ironically exactly the sort of thing that Cabin in the woods parodies. I enjoy a couple of them just purely because i can switch off a little when they're on but i'll be honest the only horror films that've truly creeped me out after watching them are oriental horror. I can't believed that no one on here recommended Ju-on the grudge and Ring. Both are creepy as dicks if watched alone in the dark, ignore the us remakes they're poopoo. Dark water and the eye (again the remake is crap) have some tense moments as well, no killable monster, no rubber masks, no serial killers just a great attention to tension growth effects and slowly escalating dread.

There are a lot of games out there that'd fit into the horror genre and they're getting better, i personally find that as soon as you have a gun in your hand then a game looses its tension. I seem to remember AH playing a game called PT recently that looked pretty creepy though.
