Alright,I take it all back. Drag Me to Hell is Awesome. The best horror movie I've seen in...a long fucking time. I always want to like horror movies, but they don't actually scare me. Granted once your over the age of 18 it's hard to scare anyone that knows they're watching a movie. So then you're just looking for suspenseful, but most movies are too predictable to even accomplish that. There's a lot of movies that have been hyped as being good horror movies in the past few years, and I've hated most of them. Saw, Hostel, Texas Chainsaw Massacre...all terrible (the re-make of The Hills Have Eyes wasn't bad, and I liked the re-make of Halloween although it wasn't actually scary).
Let the Right One In was fucking awesome, but I wouldn't call it a horror movie even though it was about a vampire. It was weird and creepy and beautiful, but it was more a coming of age love story than horror.
Drag Me to Hell actually made me jump in my seat several times. The story is great, and, even though I saw the ending coming, I enjoyed seeing it through.
Alien is a horror movie. It just happens to be set in outer space.
