Probably because horror movies are meant to be scary or intimidating in some way. Most horror movies are not that because there is nothing believable about them. Therefore most of them are kinda sh*t. The trailer for this one doesn't look particularly interesting but I dislike horror movies in general.
I would really agree with you if it was a year or two ago. I used to generally dislike horror films because they set out to scare so there these boxes that have to be ticked with breeds cliches and originality. There's also many bad horror films. I think horror films give the illusion from a filmmakers perspective that they're easier to do as apposed to some high-brown drama film like a Paul Thomas Anderson film or something or even a film drenched in sub-text and metaphors like Taxi Driver.
I think the same for comedy too. There's trying too hard in films to be funny first and if it fails, the film fails. But if it's a comedy-drama then we have a story/drama first which happens to have funny moments. I think of The Sopranos like this. It's a drama first but there's actually so many funny moments in it that it seems more natural and believable.
That's why there are some great horror films out there that don't strictly stick to it being a horror like there must be a ghost in the kitchen or monster in the cupboard. There's good intelligent horror these days that does have weight in characters, personality and story and they end up in scary situations.
Critically acclaimed films that go outside the boundaries of George Romero or Dario Argento style horrors are definitely worth a watch. I'll give you a few and see what you think.
Dead Man's Shoes
Let The Right One In
These are some horror films that break the mold and to critical or audience acclaim. I try not to write films off by genre. Because even if it's a rom-com, one comes around every now and then and it's just good. Yes, most of them are cash-grabbing travesties but like anything really, if you know where to look there's gems there.
Nobody complaining this is a remake I think it needed to happen. The original is way to long and dated. It's one of those rare cases where a remake, makes a lot of sense.
