it's really Hard


It's really Hard for me to watch Horror movies that are 2006 and newer unless it was in theaters but I have been bored with almost all Horror that I have tried to watch that's the straight to dvd SyFy stuff especially I will find a good one but they are so rare and I loved Horror

Tell me all about it! Horror has really become the mocking mirror of 90s rom-coms. Ok, maybe that's too harsh, but it's close enough. Pure formula where the cast is the only thing that ever changes.

Imagine something like Hellraiser, The Thing or Jacob's Ladder getting made today. Do we even have original horror writers anymore?

reply

Well The Thing from 2011? you don't have to imagine and Hellraiser Hellworld and a Helraiser without Doug Bradley as Pinhead I think it was kinda a found footage thing

reply

It's a rehash though, not an original idea. And, damn, don't remind me of Hellworld! I was almost ready to forget that one for good...

By the way, if there's a Carpenter movie that needs a good remake, it's Prince of Darkness... Just give it a better cast, cut the goofy stuff with Alice Cooper and you've got a winner.

reply

Yeah I like Prince of Darkness and I don't even remember Alice Cooper in it.

reply

He's the leader of the bums that swarm the building and just sit there doing nothing. Worst part of the movie for me, I had to do a double take to make sure if that's really him....

last good horror movie i saw was The Void (2016). people with 80s and 90s horror movies bias will love it.

also, we grow up. things are not as scary anymore. its just like drugs, we develop tolerance.

reply

No something else is missing, maybe it's poor writing or something.

reply

I can't even find a horror movie worth watching all the way through anymore.

reply

Most modern horror sucks. Often the story is non existent, awful dialogue, and the acting really bad.

It confuses me why modern horror is like that. Is it laziness? Is it stupidity? Is it lack of talent? I find it staggering just how many crap movies get massive funding and go into production when they're absolute trash.

reply

Part of it is the culture has changed so that women can no longer be seen as victims and instead are portrayed as basically a man with boobs. It reads as false.
