I feel your pain, Sturgeon’s Law is very much in effect in horror movies, but there are some really good ones still. For example, my favorite horror movie in terms of scariness is probably [REC] . I’ve heard the argument that it doesn’t scare as much as startle, and I can definitely see the point, but it has pacing and timing that really prevents you from recovering your cool.
Also, The Strangers is probably one of the most atmospheric horror movies I’ve seen in a while, although the characters act like idiots occasionally. Pretty much the same problem with Paranormal Activity, but it’s scares are wicked effective, I guess you could call it minimalist horror in a way.
That’s all the horror movies I’ve personally found scary recently, it’s a pretty short list, but I’m kinda hard to scare.
Hi, @By-my-design. Typically, we like to leave inactive threads alone and just start a new thread instead. This is different than how some forums are run, but we do it this way because it frequently upsets users to have old topics revived when they are no longer relevant. It can also be frustrating to the person who revived the thread when they don’t get a reply, because the original poster is no longer active or no longer finds the topic relevant. Feel free to start a new thread on this topic.
