HORROR FILMS OF LATE

#1 by Hugh Thompson Scott ( deleted ) , Sun Jan 10, 2016 1:34 am

I don't know how many will agree with me,but I find the Horror Films of late, just that, horrible, pornographic, I have sat through
the "Human Centipede" 1 & 2 and am disgusted, people joined up to defacate in each others mouths, relentlessly, sickening. I would
like five minutes with the sick bastard that put this out, no, it wouldn't take that long. A sad refection on what passes for "censorship"
on TV. John Trevelyan ruined many a film in his day as Censor, especially Hammer Films, and anything by Ken Russell,mustn't show pubic hair or too much blood, in a vampire scene, now the most disgusting scenes are on show. It shows that the old horror films still are the best, and you don't need a mouthwash afterwards. Trevelyan, will be rotating at high speed in his coffin.

Modern cinema doesn't appeal to me at all! No matter what genre it is, I like early cinema WAY better!

Have to agree again Hugh,I am a horror fan but don't like the modern stuff at all, it's like a competition to see who can get as much gore and near porn as possible through the censors, I remember in 1979 when I bought texas chainsaw how my mum thought that was a disgusting film, it's so tame now compared to new stuff,that human centipedes is utter trash and a disgrace especially that it's now shown on tv. Looking at horror of late the stories are so weak its just about making the audience jump as many times as possible with sudden loud shock sound and ridiculously fast editing. I think the censors. Need to take a look at what they are allowing,no wonder kids are no longer scared or shocked at anything,today's stupid parents let them watch trash like this as well as play horror and violent games,have you heard the language on a war game? I simply could not believe it, a game!!!!

Not really watched many new films since 2000, just the odd ones. I find them boring like you say fast editing and load sounds, really to cover-up poor (film) video making. Don't find them believable anyway too much cgi in them. Give me the true skills of years-ago.

I watched Creature From Black Lagoon last night in 3D really enjoyed it, a pity the super 8 version was red/cyan.

I still love the smell of film in the morning

My top horror are 70-80's
Alien
The Thing ('82)
The Exorcist
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Friday the 13th
Halloween
The Fog

Guess I kinda like Mr. Carpenter :-)

I didn't find titles as Paranormal Activity, The Babadook and such titles scary, just boring with annoying photo and editing. Long since there was a good one

While I more or less agree with all the above, do check out THE CONJURING. It is well done and actually scary without resorting to gore and 'torture porn'.

They don't make much HORROR FILMS these days. Only predictable gore slasher porn movies.
Movies like SAW and HOSTEL and their bedfellows do nothing for me.

I did bore myself through the Conjuring also. I really don't find them scary. Maybe I am immune now. I am actually more scared of the horrors humans actually do in real life. Animal cruelty, asswipes who thinks they have the right to rape. Children should be protected. That is scary stuff. Monsters in films are fun

With age I've become very jaded towards what passes as horror movies these days. I am a fan of the old Universal classics from the 1930's and 1940's. Gore fest movies do little for me but I do enjoy the original Halloween very much!

I second that Douglas. Give me a good old Universal film any day. Those films have real class and finesse that is sadly
lacking these days. Some great film scores too.
