I'm not really phased by gore/horror/thriller etc. I saw Saw 3 last night and there was just 1 little scene that made me cringe for some reason and i had to look a away for a second, but that's as bad as it gets for me, i didn't scream or anything.

So...i'm not really sure what would make a movie scary o_O

i guess a good horror movie nowadays would be something so extremely violent that it would recieve an NC17 rating. most horror movies barely reach R ratings nowadays because we've become so sensitive as a society its disgusting.

Are you serious? Hostel? Saw? Hills Have Eyes? The Descent?

We certainly have become sensitive to how much violence there is in the world and in the media, but it definitely has not shown in our movie industry. If anything, violence is getting worse because people are harder to scare and gross out because of our tolerance of violence and gore.

Hostel- Some geek just wanted to make a porn movie that would be shown in cinemas. Total bore

Saw- Rocks! 'nough said

Hills Have Eyes- zzzzzzzzzzzzz

The Descent- *something happens* 'saw that coming....' *yawn*

I should do movie horror movie reviews or something.

Well said Pugz.

I haven't seen Hostel or The Decent yet but I saw the others. The Hills Have Eyes was yet another remake and Saw was original the first time. Too many movies are just predictable or laughable.

When Rob Zombie was originally doing House of 1000 Corpses there was a scene where they were going to have someone skinned alive but he was told by Hollywood executives that it was too much. If he had actually filmed the movie the way he originally wrote it, it was going to be so violent that there was no rating available.

Most of society just can't handle the extremes of horror, hence the pathetic attempts we've been given. Truth is the last good horror movie that was new for it's time was the Friday the 13th series early on.

Horror movies now a day are terrible. Gore is not scary. It either disgusts the person or just makes them cringe(or it just doesn't effect them). Either way, it isn't scary. A scary movie is something that can get in your head or something where you actually don't see the monster/thing thats doing the bad stuff. That way, your mind is left to make up the most extreme things that you yourself are actually afraid of.
