Only from the year 2000 and up!
Only from the 90's and up!
Only from the 80's and up!
Only from the 70's and up!
Only from the 60's and up!
I'm only interested in what is out now and what is coming out soon!

Old horror flicks (all the way back to the 50's) are the best horror movies! they still hold up after all these years. New horror (give or take a couple here and there) flicks tend to be scary when you see them but are easily forgotten.

Am surprised by the turn out of this poll...

...being that old movie columns/articles on AITH are the ones that get the less traction on the site. That's actually what prompted this poll....

well the poll is a little imbalanced. you needed to include an option for "some old movies interest me regardless of the year produced." and options for specific decades. the way you have it, folks who only like movies from the 70's aren't going to vote, because the would also be supporting 80s movies which they might despise. and folks who enjoy some old movies, but not most (like myself) aren't goin to vote.

Hell yeah. Last Halloween I watched 'Freaks' for the first time and fell instantly in love with it. Fantastic and endearing movie with surprisingly modern sensibilities. This year I want to catch 'The Black Cat' with Karloff & Bela Lugosi.

Watching old movies is like watching genre fare. A lot (perhaps even most) will not connect with you barely at all. But you enjoy their elements, and occasionally you find the gems. And thats the fun of it.

I'm always seeking out old ones I've never seen.

very good question..

for the most part... no. older movies in general, except for a few pieces that are special to me, do not interest me much. it's not that i'm so enamored of modern flick slickness, but that the sensibilities have changed so much that a lot of the emotional content of older cinema seems trite, silly, even offensive. a couple old movies that still mean something to me (for comparison, as their messages are still potent): Monty Python's Meaning of Life, The Shining, The Birds...

Of course!

They interest me more than the new ones! I don't think it's any real secret that the horror genre in mainstream Hollywood cinema has been in a slump since the late 80s.

Absolutely. From the silent era onward.

While I'll accept any great work of cinema with open arms, the ones of days come to pass interest me the most!
