    I used to be terrified of Horror films, i'd jump, scream, cover my face, etc during them. And I would love the the feeling's I'd get watching them. But now over the years, I just havent found the right movie to make me do all that stuff again. I've watched countless films and still havent been able to be scared. These new up and coming 'horror' just aren't cutting it. I need to be scared again.

    I need suggestions, please. If you know any horror film whether it be american or foreign, tell me the title.

    I appreciate the help. icon_biggrin.gif

    Try the '70s originals of horrible recent remakes of former "midnight movies" like "Last House on the Left," "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Evil Dead."

    Back then, casting agents sought talent, authenticity, or both and the actors never looked "actor-y" - they were immensely more relatable. Given the lower production budgets and lack of CGI they were more creative and less polished so the locations weren't as luxe, the camera work as quick cutting and the music, if any, as overtly, manipulatively scored. While sometimes intentionally funny the intimacy and immediacy of such low budget gritty realism makes the initial yucks give way to terror, and they got away with a lot more in the originals than they ever could now in the remakes. Case in point - the mother's revenge in "Last House on the Left." For sheer terror and violence those films earned their X ratings upon initial release!

    A couple of low budget black & white '60s classic films also have some creepy, surprising scares - the first two that come to mine are the original "Night of the Living Dead" and the bizarre, nuanced "Carnival of Souls." When you're so used to spicy food that it tastes bland, a mere change in texture may excite your palate.

    I know how you feel OP. I watched Jeepers Creepers 2 a couple of months ago and I laughed throughout the entire movie.

    Awww! It's only a film about "family" and a father's desire to provide.

    Most modern horror films are poor excuses of art, they have zero directing skill applied, there is no themes, scores, suspense build up, they're just basically disgusting gorefests with porn spliced in, with terrible bad language and heavy metal music bearing into your eardrums.

    Its depressing, another example of the decline of American culture, at least the 1970s malaise produced mega effective horror pictures, you would think with all the negativity since 9/11 that Hollywood wouldve been able to pull off some decent terror relays.

    The last horror movie that really scared me was The Exorcist years ago (and then Jaws if that counts).
    And I watched them on TV too.
    Today's horror movies are just blood and guts. They are more disgusting than horrifying in concept. No imagination.
