    Good film,,

    or just watch the thing, not the new one.
    Put on your happy smile so the world doesnít see you cry,
    Be talkative so they wonít ask whatís wrong,
    Donít cry, donít break down youíre not allowed to do that,

    Stop shaking they wonít understand,

    Put on your mask; hide so much of who you are,

    Bury it all and become so fake, then your ready to face the world another day.

    The 80's brought us American Werewolf In London, Hell House, Lost Boys, Demons, Killer Clowns From Mars (now thats a messed up film if you hate clowns!) and a bunch of B movie horrors.
    The nineties and naughties brought us all remakes, its like everyone just gave up thinking of a good plot to scare the crap out of us.

    The last time I was creeped out was wwhen I went to see Rec at the cinema, after it finished I went to the gents. So im standing at the urinal, doing my thing when I feel like someone is watching. I turn to see another bloke in his 50's atleast, wearing a long blue mac with a balding head, huge glasses and pock marked face grinning at me weirdly. "Great film that wasn't it" he said.
    Now I don't get a nervous bladder but that second was a photo finish as I nearly ran out of the toilet :0/

    Well, growing up in the 80's & getting to see all of these films come out during elementary school at age 7, 8, 9 etc. was pretty f-ing cool! Now, I've not seen most of them since then, so I know my view may be biased due to a certain level of sentimentality. That said, I keep hearing about this resurgence in the popularity of horror every several years or so, and let me tell you, it's no-thing like it was back then, not even close! The slasher genre was the shit!

    While I have not seen any good new horror movies I think half of the problem is those old movies you saw were good bEcause you were so young. however if you want something that will pretty much make you crap your pants play the game amnesia the dark descent with no lights on and it will do the trick better than all of the movies you mentioned

    There's still horror, but 80 percent of it is CGI and 20 percent sloppy scriptwriting.

    I am so so glad someone said this!! Haha Insidious was pretty good, a lot better than I expected, but the Saw movies are horrible, and I've haven't really seen any good horror movies lately that have been worthwhile. If any of you see any you should let me know!!

    Amnesia is a effing scary game lol.

    Here's a short film which i think is really good. Tell.<-- Link. It's an indie film but still good and suspenseful, you might enjoy it.

    Actually, I thought The Descent was an intense horror film of recent years. I saw Silent House, and it was so bad it made me want to check out Silent Hill.
