    Question

    The source is Wikipedia, but I find it a bit odd how 10 years only produced a dozen horror films reaching number one. The 80's even had more. Maybe the 90's saw a decline in popularity of the genre, to a milder degree.

    It just seemed like there was a lot of other stuff going on in the 90's in terms of movies and much of what we received from the genre back then was aimed at a younger demographic, despite being rated R, specifically after Scream proved so successful.

    Saw very few of those in the theater. Out of those, I saw Freddy's Dead, Stigmata, Death Becomes Her, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Vampires at the theater.

    I turned 18 in January of 2004, so I didn't watch horror films at the box office until many years later. I've seen most of the films listed here on TV or from getting my old man to rent them. They'd let me watch many gory movies, but not everything out there, which I found to be rather dumb.

    There wasn't much my folks wouldn't let me watch in the 80's. Our local video store would rent R movies to the kids as long as the parents told them it was fine. All I had to do was tell them the name the membership was under and away I went with a pile of horror movies. Going to the video store was a great thing back then.

    I once rented the sequel to Carrie shortly after or just before I turned 15. My mother then told me she was amazed the video store gave it to me, being that it's a horror film.

    Why should it matter what the genre is? If you're the right age, they cannot refuse to give you a DVD. Some 18 films aren't even as violent as a 15 rated film, arguably at least. Like Gremlins is rated 15 for some reason, while Jurassic Park has more gore and some swearing, yet that got away with being a PG. Critters is a 15 too, and has more gory scenes that merit its rating. Same with Jaws, which may have gotten a new rating of 12 for the widescreen version, but still.

    Scream, Scream 2, The Exorcist III, and Child's Play 2 are some of my favorite movies of all time
