A man's point of view

When I was a kid in the 80's there were horrors such as Salem's lot or hell raiser. they would literally scare me to death, I would have to sleep with the light on for weeks. these movies were scary.

There were zombie movies and Dracula was still sucking blood.
Qatermass and the pit, house on haunted hill. I.T by Stephen king.

They are undisputed classics.

What ever happened to these kind of movies.

Today's horrors barley make me raise a eyebrow. they look fake and they are all remakes of the above named movies. I truly believe that they are now running out of ideas. Can you think of a horror movie beyond the year 2000 that scared you like they did in the 80's?.

I think the last movie that scared me was called devils advocate. it is a awesome movie and I would recommend it to anyone out there.

Maybe its not the movie retail business that's dying but in fact the the movie making side of it that's running dry of ideas, who knows.

Idk, I don't like horror movies at all, as you well know. That's why I make you watch Dirty Dancing and Breakfast at Tiffany's over and over. You poor man. I love you.

Ah, yes, to even mention it here gives me nightmares...I would think the horror story that inspires much horror as the ones from the past (my past fav/scare is "The Shining"...shudder) anyway, the most recent to inspire major massive fear would be "The Ring."
