old horror films make me uncomfortable, not scared like when she got stabbed in shower it filled me with anger and anxiety. horror films now like insidious and the conjuring give me a good kind of fear like im afraid but its fun

Horror movies have definitely not dominated the box office for decades. They’ve been around, sure, but dominated? Nope. Not even close.

Gonna be cruelty honest here. The newer 2017 “It” really sucked. It was funny and amusing to watch but it shouldn’t fall under the horror category

I absolutely agree with horror being a personable emotion before it was classified into a genre and separated into various sub-genres. Horror movies (and perhaps books and video games) have always been evolving since mankind has gathered together to tell stories depending on what the audience members consider scary, or creepy, and what is current (though old Gothic/slow-burn horror might be what we turn back to for how the current horror genre progresses, though that’s just my personal theory depending on whether slow-burn may drag too long in movies and more action-y/jumpscare movies become relevant again).

Why would you just completely skip over the decade of the 80’s?! The Shining, The Thing, An American Werewolf in London, A Nightmare of Elm Street, Hellraiser, The Lost Boys. I think this decade deserved at least a 30 second mention in your video.

Silence of the Lambs is not and I repeat, is not a Horror film. IMDb classifies the movie in the following genres: Crime - Drama - Thriller. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102926/ Do better VF in your research.

Oh god, I hope 'get out' isn't a sign of things to come, it's truly truly bloody terrible! It's a comedy and nothing more. Though they skipped things like Incidióus and the conjuring, which were a move away to a new type of horror.

W you said it yourself, get out is a psychological horror. I wouldn’t call it a thriller. If you’re talking about scares then yes, get out isn’t very scary. But horror isn’t just about scares like jump scares or ghosts or slasher films. It’s also about the psyche and in that sense, get out was scary to me. Psychological horrors are still horrors

+freja201 get out was a really good movie but I'd class it more as a thriller than a horror. I know it does fit in the horror category but I'm talking about scares rather than psychological horror. Insidious is one of the scariest movies I've ever seen made by a fantastic horror director James Wan. The Conjuring movies (made by James Wan too) are scary too but not as scary as Insidious. I'm referring to just the 1st insidious btw. 2 was okay, 3&4 were crap. If you think get out was scary and insidious wasn't then I'm sorry but you're lying to yourself.

Some could argue that it's getting scarier by them getting better at effects, even if practical effects like The Thing is still holding up well
