'Scary films have lost their fangs'

Washington, Sun, 04 Oct 2009 ANI

Washington, Oct 4 (ANI): Scary movies these days are not that scary, at least that's what a pop-culture author, guru and an associate humanities librarian for the Texas Tech University Libraries believes.

 

"The recent slate of horror movies is pathetic," said Rob Weiner.

 

"They aren't scary. There's nothing that captures the imagination. It's like Hollywood ran out of ideas," he added.

 

Weiner believes America's next great scare will come from the ranks of Indie filmmakers, whose storytelling more often focuses on those little details like character development.

 

However, he isn't holding out much hope.

 

"It probably isn't going to happen in America," he said.

 

"It will probably be someone we try to emulate, like we have with the Italians and Japanese in the past. Of course, I'm hoping someone proves me wrong," he added.

 

Weiner is a Texas Tech author, librarian and instructor with expertise on topics ranging from the Grateful Dead to American presidents in film. He lectures on the history of horror cinema. (ANI)
