The last movie that actually scared me (about the only one, in fact) was ALIEN - when I saw it back about 1981. Still a good movie, but it doesn't scare me anymore - I simply enjoy it.
I don't care for gore - it doesn't do anything for me. As far as "horror" movies, I find them predictable and formulaic. Kinda like fighting someone who tells you everything he's going to do thirty seconds before he does it, and does it slow.
Another fun one that just came out is "John Dies at the End." The book was described by one reviewer as "being like hit by a truck made of horror hauling two tons of stupid." The movie was directed by Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep, Phantasm series) and he did an awfully good job of taking something that was so bizarre in the reading that I couldn't see my mental images being translated to the screen. Not especially scary (it's mean to be more funny and bizarre than anything else,) but I think it was done well.
But, most horror these days merely strikes me as pointless. I don't understand the fixation people have on being scared, and I don't understand how "horror" movies these days actually manage to scare people...
It could just be me, tho.
