The Last Great Horror Movie?

BWP
The Blair Witch Project(1999).

I rarely watch any movie from the horror genre these days yet I still enjoy the genre in other mediums, on a rare occasion. Until Dawn was an entertaining jaunt and I’ve liked some of the Resident Evil series.

One good horror movie from 1999 was The Blair Witch Project. I’ve only seen it the once and, like many others at the time, caught myself thinking that I was watching found footage at times. I hadn’t thought about the movie in many years until I read this recent article. It’s an interesting thought that The Blair Witch Project is considered as the last groundbreaking movie from the horror genre. I suppose with this movie genre being so bloated with pulp shock and gore, it’s been left to other mediums like TV and comic books to lead the way. I can’t comment on horror fiction as IT was probably the last book I read in this genre, all the way back in the late 1980’s.

Am hoping to watch my copy of It Follows soon(I’ve heard good things about it)but am curious to know if you’ve seen any outstanding horror movies recently? Do you think I should just stick to other mediums(I’ve only seen the first season of The Walking Dead)?
