Today’s Horror Movies Suck

‘m going to flat out say it, HORROR MOVIES OF THE PAST DECADE, for the most part, ABSOLUTELY SUCK! They were good once upon a time, believe it or not. Back in the day of the Psycho and other Alfred Hitchcock movies ,to the 70’s and 80’s slasher franchises of Halloween, Friday the 13th, and Nightmare on Elm Street, to the 90’s Silence of the Lambs and Wes Craven’s satirical masterpiece of Scream, to the 2000’s remakes and paranormal movies? What happened to good horror movies?

Top Ten Halloween Movies

10) Nightmare on Elm Street- Not much of a Freddie fan, but the original Wes Craven flick was way ahead of its time.

9) Friday the 13th part I and II- I am going to cheat on this one and put a two way tie for 9th with the first two Friday the 13th movies. Not much of a Jason fan either, team Myers all the way, but part 1 was a real plot twist with Mrs. Voorhees being the killer and part 2 is the birth of a slasher legend, Jason. Also, Friday the 13th part I may have the most terrifying scene in all of horror movies, with it being the end scene when disfigured Jason jumps out of the water, Yikes!
