Horror is such a dead genre these days?

I feel like modern "horror" films should just be classified as gore films. They dropped true frightening stories in exchange for blood and guts.

A lot of hour these days are either remakes of the classics, which is usually a mix of various parts from the whole franchise. or it's all gore/blood with jump scare tactics which work but have been to overdone.

Nightmare on elm street, really scared me to the point i couldn't sleep. Perfect example of pyschological with blood/gore. Really need more horror with psychological and less cheesy cgi these days.

Horror isn't dead just need a fresh angle, a new edge that isn't duplicated with dozens of films in it's wake which have no story or relief on simple scares and bad cgi. I'd rather see a few awesome horror films than two dozen crap films, quality over quantity.

I'd have a halloween film, where the whole time you're led to believe a character is the serial killer, but in reality he's the under cover cop. After his death, the protagonist finds evidence that reveals the revelation of whom the killer really is, that the killer has been there from the beginning, hiding in plain sight.

Think Saw, less cgi, intriguing plot that grips you but with just enough blood/gore to keep you squeamish.

The original "Nightmare on Elm Street" is a much better movie than what some people give credit for. It had such an original premise and the "One two Freddy's" coming for you" song still creeps me out. Then the sequels (I've seen all of them) turned Freddy Krueger into a comical character, possibly because Robert Englund was a stand up comic in real life.

There are two types of horror movies these days.

The first is;
Group of dumb college kids (3-5, one of them being the responsible guy and the kinda responsible girl with the douchebag boyfriend) goes somewhere.
The responsible one is friend zoned with the hot girl right now.
Most of them die, the blonde will trip over.
Mr responsible friend zone and the hot girl is all that's left, and the moment he gets a kiss he dies.
She lives.
Credits roll.

And the second is;

Shit.
Credits roll.

LOL, I don't like western horror flicks.. (All that much)
But I have seen pretty much every Japanese Horror movie there is.
I have not been scared by a Movie since I Watched Ryū Murakami's Audition when I was about 11...
(But Eihi Shiina in Audition was so pretty I could not stop watching.)

I would like more Tomie Movies.. <3
Or something like Rape Zombies or Tokyo Gore police.
Exploitation movies are allot of fun.

I also recommend you check out the VHS and ABC's of Death anthology films on Netflix.

Not to forget THE GREEN INFERNO. If you are a fan of Italian Cannibal films like me this will be a must see.

It follows looks like a new horror film that reflects the basic rules of the classic horror films.

i don't think the genre is dead at all. we have quite a few horror tv shows. i think the quality of horror films is pretty poor. every January we get some really crappy horror films...usually about demon possession.
