When it comes to horror films, it’s tough to figure out where genuine scares and thrills will be found. What will it take to get you to respond? How would you respond? How do you hope to respond? I guess it all depends on what type of horror film you’re seeing. Perhaps it also depends on when the film was made. Some films, no matter how old or how much hype surrounds them or doesn’t in some cases, just can’t be effective. You can try all you want, but you’ll never find it scary. And others can flat out surprise you.
