Modern day horror movies like Hatchet, The Grudge & You’re Next are really good cause they use the dark classic feeling. Shhh no one cares Michael Myers Those are movies that stick with you. 1 classic movie that gets a remake this year I’m really looking forward to is IT. That 1s gotta be good!
Shhh no one cares Michael Myers shirt
This is a great question and deserves a good discuss. I suspect The Exorcist is ranked number one because of it’s impact. Halloween comes close, but few., if any, horror films can match the impact Exorcist had on it’s audience. We’d never seen people vomiting, fainting, hysterical due to a movie. The number of people attending church had a huge increase. Shhh no one cares Michael Myers Nurses were sometimes kept on staff during movie showings. Also, it influenced almost every horror movie that came after it. It may not scare you today but that because you already know all the scares and whats going to happen.
During the 70s/80s when it came out, I heard people really find it extremely scary. But for today’s standards, it isn’t really a scary movie anymore. Yet it also shows up #1 on alot scariest horror movie lists above modern day movies. I’ve seen both modern days and classic horror movies. They’re both great in their own ways. Although I still find classics darker and scarier. Classic Movies like Hell Night & Texas Chainsaw all have a huge scare factor and a very dark macabre feel to it which are really hard to beat, even for today’s standards.
