Sometimes a movie comes out and everybody says it's terrifying, so you go see it. And it's no big deal — maybe there's a jump scare or two, but basically you're unmoved. What is the worst offender in this category?

My pick is Insidious, which I know will make me unpopular — but what else is new? The whole story felt really predictable to me, and the Darth Maul/scary old lady monster didn't freak me out. I'm not saying the movie was horrible, but I wasn't scared. And it's not like I don't love cheesy horror — Paranormal Activity had me basically paralyzed with terror for at least an hour. Insidious just didn't give me the DANGER NOW alert in my animal brain.
