How To Fix the Horror Movie Genre In 10 Steps

I used to love watching horror movies but for whatever reason, the genre has gotten stale and boring (seriously people, how many “found footage” or “based on actual events” flicks do we need?). I’ve also grown tired of all the torture porn. Sure the first couple of films that showcased horrific deaths of mostly women (and thanks for keeping up the misogyny guys) were shocking but now it’s just, well, par for the course.

And I’m not the only one to think so either, Jeremy Scott (of CinemaSins) has put together a great list of ways to fix the horror movie genre if it is to survive the current wave of “Meh”…and really, Hollywood, you should probably listen.

By the way, could someone please let makers of the Paranormal Activity series know that we get it, there’s a demon who likes babies…perhaps we should all move on.

Video after the break.
