    It was spoofed on The Simpsons, in a Treehouse episode. It is a horror movie.

    As somewhat of an age, I wonder if teen and 20-somethings get our old Horror classics: Psycho; Deliverance; Cuckoo’s Nest; Night of the Living Dead to name a few. Not the same colourful effects but pretty scary, just the same. CGI is good, but the good old days weren’t bad either. Carrie 1.0 was excellent. Haven’t seen 2.0. They all scared the bejesus out of me

    The new horror movies are mostly special effects with ‘homages’ (rip off) from the old ones. Which means that when the kids see the old ones they have this feeling of ‘déja vu’ and just ask where is the blood.

    The old ones involves acting. The new ones, as cabalonrye said, are all special effects.

    Who needs horror movies when we have “The Boehner Boys”?

    Read the book. Much scarier than the movie.

    Exactly. Some of the best horror movies are the ones which left certain things to your imagination.

    The Shining was a great movie. As good as the book. There isn’t enough gore in it to appease today’s desensitized kids.

    Having watched the B&W version of The Haunting with Julie Harris and the updated version in colour & showing the CGI “monsters”-
    .
    The original B&W was way scarier. Throughly believed the lines at the end & the beginning that whatever walked those halls walked alone.

    If you want to see good horror movies, where the acting and dialog were more important than the CGI or effects, watch the old B&W Universal monster movies; Dracula, the various Frankenstein movies and, of course, the Wolfman. BTW, there have been many werewolves in movies, but Chaney was the only person ever to play a wolfman. (Unless you count the completely unrelated film of that name from 1979, and I don’t.)

    this is not a new problem. show someone of even my age a movie like Citizen Kane or the Protempkin, and we go “what’s the big deal.”
    The big deal is it is the FIRST time this was done! And not to paraphrase Hemmingway everyone is trying to beat a dead guy. So the Exorcist, Carrie, Psycho, are still better. of course walking into the middle of any movie can give you the wrong impression

    Oh oh loved that one. guy I use to work with told of seeing it one late night and after it was over he was walking out of the room when his cat did the thing the cat did, hissing and jumping sideways. He said the next thing he knew he had every light in the place on and was sitting on a bar stool with a loaded shotgun slowly scanning the room.
