Same here, pretty much. I don't find myself getting as scared of films anymore, but if a film is good in story and quality and has the horror elements and themes that are rampant and does a good job with it, then I'm all for it. Most of my favorite horror films are films from the 30s, 40s, etc. I don't find them scary at all, but to me they're the best horror films. When I did see the film in theaters before it officially came out, the theater loved it and were going nuts, laughing and screaming and jumping, etc. I watched it with my family at one family gathering and everyone were also jumping and having a great time.
There are all types of horror films, and sub-genres within the genre. Drag Me To Hell was a pleasant surprised that while kooky, showed that it can do a good horror film with the right themes and elements of classical horror without resorting to torture porn. The biggest part with blood/gore was when the lead had a squirting nose bleed. And it generally was just a good fun time, something you can laugh at while still finding great suspense and tense moments.
