      New horror movies, at least in my opinion, are nowhere near as good as they were in the past. The movies from the 80's caught the cheesy B-movie feel and were very fun to watch. Movies like Silent Night Deadly Night, Child's Play, and many others were both moving and scary. They were over the top but the idea was still scary. Now we have CGI do everything and it looks even more fake than practical effects!

      A great Hub of some pretty exciting upcoming films but, how could you, even when this hub was published, state the third Jeepers Creepers is coming out in 2013? Is that verified, to any extent? I'm just curious. Anyway, thanks for the list!
