Horror films have changed over the past couple of years and have somewhat lost their scary aspect. I feel that some of the newer horror films are based on sex. Don't get me wrong, there are some good horror films still. Below, I am going to give you 5 reasons I like older horror films...
5. More High Budget Films
Have you noticed that most new horror films look like they have little budget? There is lack of correct lighting, acting and graphics. This makes it a low budget movie that is a waste of time to watch.
4. Better Evil Characters
Freddy and Jason was always scary to me. Today, there isn’t many characters that make it big like these old fashion characters. There was “it” from Stephen King, Pumkinhead, pet cemetery and much more!
3. Acting Was Better
Actors had to try harder in the past. You saw some good acting in older movies, because the movie industry was first starting off. They tried harder to be a blockbuster hit. Now a movie is being produced every week or month!
2. The Characters in the Movies Were Smarter
In horror movies today, you find that they make almost every character dumb. They make it noticeable that they will be the first to die or that the enemy is about to attack. If you watched older movies like Freddy, you find smart people.
1. Not Many Sex Scenes
Horror and sex has nothing to do with each other, so why have it? When I watch a horror movie I expect gore and blood. People need to be dying in the movie and constant auction. Older horror films didn’t go as far as today’s horror films with sex. That’s why they were more successful.
I hope you liked the reasons why I like older horror films. Horror films are dying off with the same ideas playing over and over. Do you think older horror films are better?
