When The Exorcist was re-released into theaters, the younger people in the audience laughed at it.
I laughed out loud for a good 15 minutes when I first saw The Exorcist back in 2003 when the 'crucifix scene' played. How did that movie ever scare anyone?

A good horror story doesn't need any blood-just a ratcheting up of the tension to the point where your head feels like its going to explode. This was a good example, IMO. Another that got to me was Ghost Story with Fred Astaire. By the last scene I was crawling out of my skin. I don't even bother watching Saw or the Jason movies, etc. It's not really horror, IMO, just some graphic killing. Where's the entertainment in that?
I saw Ghost Story not too long ago. It bored the Hell out of me. Seeing Alice Krige buck naked and fooling around was pretty nice, though.

Well, if you want to creep the hell out of me it has to be something with clowns or insects.
It, Killer Klowns from Outer Space (a lost classic, IMO), Them, perhaps a few others.

Re: Just saw the scariest 20 minutes in cinema history.

Ghost and slasher flicks put me to sleep. And I don't even bother with religious horror. Lovecraftian horror is really about the only thing that does anything for me. So I'm pretty much left out in the cold.

Really, I think 'The Descent' is the last proper horror film I really enjoyed.

Two decent examples.

isn't bad either.
"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things. But vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant."
