As a young guy who unfortunately didn't grow up in the golden age of horror films (1970s-1980s), I honestly hate the vast majority of today's "horror" films. My reasons for it are because almost all of them just outright lack originality (I can understand that originality is almost impossible these days in entertainment but at least put some effort to throw in a few new ideas in the mix with the unoriginal things), they rely way too much on blood, gore and jump scares. They also rely way too much on CGI effects. I'm not trying to be a hipster or anything but that's really the truth about most of the modern day horror films
The only one modern day horror movie that came super close to scarying me the same way old classic horror movies like The Amityville Horror (1979), The Shining (1980) and Suspiria (1977) did is Insidious (2011) and that's because unlike most of today's horror films, while Insidious did utilize some jump scares, they didn't greatly overuse it and actually build up a terrifying feeling in you with many of their scenes.

Yeah, modern horror movies are pretty bad. Most recent, good, horror movies tend to be independent works and/or foreign films.0
