I've seen alot of horror movies in my day and it seems like just about everything has been done already. What do think has never been done in horror movie? What's something you would like to see? What would you pay hard earned money for? And what would scare the living crap out of you?

A well-done story.  I'm sick of shock gimmicks.

Extensive research should be conducted on the base of fear. I want a movie where hope is a complete illusion. It is sort of hard to describe exactly what I'm talking about.

I enjoy scaring myself, because most movies have failed to do so since I was little. I often imagine everyday people and occurances in a warped, one track embodiment of my demise, such as a woman screaming in the distance and no matter what I do she walks up to me and rips my skin off. Similar things have been done before, but I think it all depends on how you represent it; Horror is too positive anymore.

True horror from the good ol' days (and rarely now) was bleak, devoid of hope, and utterly sinister. I love horror comedies, but I too wish to be given nightmares.

They will eventually find a new way to scare audience and do something that has never been done before. It only takes time.

I've had this idea for a slasher for the longest time: a killer strikes during a traffic jam on a "lonely" stretch of road, with cars stuck bumper to bumper partially on a bridge.
Could work when done right.

How a story about a man who actually WANTS to be in a horror movie? He constantly drives out to no man's land with little gas, no cell phone, no gun, and no spare tire; only to be help by nice country folk, not inbred, cannibal freaks. At home he leaves all of his doors unlocked and windows open. He experiments with the occult and mad science, but somehow always ends up okay. He starts to lose it, so he gets desperate and tries drugs, still nothing. What can he do to make his life interesting?

The lengths he'll go may be the most shocking part. I don't know what it would be, but at that point it could be as extreme as the director can make it.

Everything that can be done in a movie has already been done.  At best, a filmmaker can only hope to use the same old tricks in a well-executed manner.

I'd like to see the killer get shot and actually die rather than waking up and grabbing someone's ankle.

Well, there's Thankskilling (involving a homicidal turkey) and the Gingerdead Man (involving a homicidal gingerbread cookie) movies, all within the last 6 years, so nobody can say that they aren't trying new things.

As a bad movie fan, I love "Thankskilling." But it does kind of prove that Hollywood is out of ideas. I liked the idea about guy trying to live life like a horror movie, that was pretty good.

Good idea, would be refreshing. There was one of the "scream" sequels (I think Scream II) that did a variation of this where the bad guy gets a pistol shot to the chest and the good characters are discussing whether he is actually dead and one of them says "in a horror movie typically this is when the bad guy gets back up" then the girl shoots him in the middle of the forehead and says "not in my horror movie" good ending and he is dead.

Of course people staying injured (including the bad guy) would also be new and unique. Typically healing takes only a few poorly edited cuts to occur and magically the guy with a broken leg is walking around normaly.

I'd like to see a movie where everyone dies - including the killer.

The masked psycho goes around cutting of people's wieners.  

Now there's something to be afraid of.  Pretty sure nobody has done that.

Believe it or not there is an old "Miami Vice" episode where a woman seduces men and cuts off they're penises. Of course they never showed the act, but they did make reference to it.

Not masked and it was only one victim, still...
