I asked Creepy Catalog readers to share with us their best “unpopular” horror opinions. Here are the spiciest takes:

***

“The Haunting of Hill House has been the best thing to happen to horror in a long time. Scary movies just aren’t scary anymore.”

***

“I couldn’t stand “Get Out”. To this day I cannot understand why so many people think it’s one of the greatest horror movies in recent years. I thought it was super cheesy and the plot was dull.”

***

“I loved The Shining miniseries better than the original because the miniseries followed Stephen Kings The Shining much better than the original.”

***

“Halloween 3 should not exist in the franchise. It should have been its own stand alone movie. Other than it taking place on Halloween, it had no connection. That sh@t has pissed me off for years!!!”

***

“The best scene in a move was the beginning of ghost ship when everyone gets cut in half while dancing…and I love the movie 13 ghosts but the best part of that movie was when the lawyer gets cut in half by the doors…I actually busted out laughing In the theater…movies don’t scare me lol.”

***

“The 80s was actually kind of a meh decade for horror unless you’re really into slashers. 20s, 60s, 70s, and 2010s are my favorite.”

***

“Midsommar is one of the most boring and overrated films I have watched in ten years. 2+ hours of drawn out nothingness with 3 total minutes of marginal shock factor sprinkled in. Was very excited to finally watch it only to be completely let down.”

***

“I hated Cabin In The Woods. I thought the ending sucked and ruined what could have been a great movie.”

***

“The Saw franchise has all the key elements of great horror, and can cater to the interest of virtually any horror fan (excluding supernatural horror) Fight me.”

***

“I liked the remake of House on Haunted Hill better than the original.”

***

“That Scooby Doo is responsible for the modern slasher/horror genre. Before Scooby and the gang, people in horror movies ran like hell when things went badly. After Scooby Doo came on tv, people in horror movies started splitting up and investigating. But instead of discovering that it was Old Man Greely the caretaker who was killing teenagers, they ended up dead. Well dead except that one plucky girl who always seemed to make through.”

***

“Blair witch project was way too hyped up to be such a great movie . I was so disappointed when I finally did watch it. Still don’t understand why everyone thought it was so great.”

***

“Dogs don’t need to die in horror movies to advance the plot.”

***

“I can’t stand slasher movies. They are serial killers on a rampage and would be better as an installment flashback on CSI, Bones, or any detective show. Humans being mean to humans, meh, I see that on the news everyday.”

***

“Halloween 3 is the best Halloween film in the franchise.”

***

“The scream franchise is easily the best horror franchise. By a pretty wide margin.”

***

“Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween is better than the original.”

***

“The Blair witch is really about 2 guys planning to murder an ex girl friend.”

***

“Jason Voorhees wouldn’t kill anyone if his victims didn’t trip on shit all the time.”

***

“Rose Red is an underrated masterpiece.”

***

“hey don’t make nearly enough ghost movies. They’re much more interesting than slasher flicks.”

***

“Mandy & Midsommar are entirely devoid of character development.”

***

“Shining is sure a great movie for horror cinema but…didn’t care for it. To me I saw nothing horror about it but the blood coming out of the elevators. The ghosts to me weren’t that scary and half the time when someone was “shining” I had no one idea what was going on.”

***

“Don’t think its controversial but…Jordon peel isn’t a great horror director and has definitely not reinvented horror.”

***

“The original Suspiria was beautiful but boring AF!”

***

“*puts on helmet, covers neck*

Halloween would have been a more interesting franchise if Michael remained dead at the end of two, and film makers instead went with the anthology idea that began with 3. It would have been unprecedented. A new original horror story every year, in tribute to the holiday.

(That said, still really dig many of the entries, and particularly love 4)”

***

“I hate and seriously don’t think zombies would run, or open doors, climb up ladders, etc. Movies that have zombies and they run, I usually don’t like.”
