    BIG TT, it's just that people these days are far more critical of anything dealing with horror, or monsters.
    Like people say scary movies these days aren't scary. Yet, when we watch every single old scary movie, they're just plain hilarious and so cheesey it's hard to imagine anyone at any point finding them scary. But they claim they were true great horror movies.

    Gloat, maybe you are refering to slasher movies as I call them. In truth hollywood doesn't really produce true horror anymore because the youth of today have grown up with seeing the violence/horror in extremes. True horror often doesn't show you the actual act per se but rather leads you up to it and then lets your imagination take care of the rest. Slasher on the other hand can only succed by being more and more grusome than the last attempt. The first two Alien films, The Shinning(only King novel that translates to film IMO), and more recently Darkness Falls and the Ring fall into what I would call Horror.

    Most old horror/scary films. Halloweens, Texas Chainsaw Massacres, and especially the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Streets.

    I'm with you on the II's III's etc., but the originals (esp Halloween and TCM) still hold up today and in their day they, before kids were totally desensitized by video games etc. those movies terrified the piss outta folks. Fake blood is always scarier than CGI blood.

    Really though?? Cartoons make for scarier scenes than prop scares?

    It's more the scriptwriter, but I digress. I think someone being able to recreate the feel of a book - whichever it may be - takes a certain skill to do in itself.
