    Jump scares are a key component of ALL horror flicks, whether straight up torture porn or the classiest Hammer flick. Done well they are the most effective reliable scare in the toolbox. Yeah, some flicks overdo them, but if you don't like jump scares, you don't wanna be scared, therefore Horror flicks may not be your stomping ground. Nothing wrong with that Brownie. Horror flicks are supposed to provide that HIGH TENSION followed by a release dump. If you have never jumped in unison with an entire theater, and then you all laugh as a unit at how they GOTCHA...well, you ain't lived. For me, an effective horror movie is second only to a great comedy as far as sharing a communal experience.

    I mean I get it, I get why people enjoy 'em... but to me they're mostly just a cheap substitute for something that's actually scary. To me great horror isn't someone sneaking up behind you and going 'boo' loudly in your ear, it's experiencing something horrifying. Now that's something that's largely subjective while the startle reflex is universal, so it's always gonna be easier to startle someone than to really scare them, but I wish more movies were made to be a slow build of terror rather than a roller coaster of jump scares.

    Sadly, that type of movie doesn't make $$ anymore. Best recent example...saw Woman in Black with an audience of kids, no doubt drawn in by Daniel Radcliffe. Great movie, exactly as you describe, yet the kids were laughing at it. There are a lot of horror flicks like that, they just don't get theatrical releases. Here is one you might like...Wake Wood. And, if you have not yet seen, The Changeling w/George C. Scott. Check em out and if you like em I will see if I can find you more horror flicks geared to your tastes.

    I meant to watch Woman in Black, but I forgot about it.

    And I agree with The Changeling. There really is a sort supply of slow burning suspense oriented horror films these days. :(

    Haven't seen?! I think a lot of people have seen most of them.

    BTW, Blood Sucking Freaks comes out next Monday on Blu-ray in the UK.
