I was never a big movie fan growing up-- too long for my attention span, tv worked much better-- but in general, most horror films never scared me because I never bought into them mentally. (And yet, I'm a complete sucker for the romantic comedy, go figure). And since they didn't scare me, nor did they make me laugh usually, I was always either indifferent or bored. I'm spooked plenty, but fortunately horror films just don't do it.
Now, Snakes on a Plane, that would scare me to death.
