That's funny. It was actually Scream that turned me off. I didn't like where horror was going. I enjoyed Hostel, Saw and The Ring (American), and was glad that horror had shifted gears. Then the remakes came and aggravated me all over again. Fortunately, I appreciate Cabin in the Woods, Insidious and The Innkeepers. I guess the next wave won't appeal to me. It sounds as though the critic hasn't enjoyed horror since the 80's. There's little doubt that she'll ever appreciate the genre again.
