I have three tiers of the state of jump scares in horror movies.

1. The Worst Kind - Jump scares that don't feature anything scary. Loud music playing as something completely not menacing happens, like somebody putting a hand on another person's shoulder. There's nothing scary about that. I'm not going to lie and say it's never startled me, because it's designed to startle you. It's just not scary.

2. The All Right Kind - Jump scares that actually feature something scary. A good example would be the movie Sinister. It has a bunch of jump scares, but for the most part, the jump scares have to do with something scary. Sure, it's still loud and meant to startle you, but at least something scary is happening.

3. The Best Kind - a.k.a. No jump scares. Best example in recent memory would be The Babadook. The distinct lack of loud music or sounds enhances the movie so much. When something scary happens, all you hear are the sounds that would happen naturally. There might be some other sounds in some scenes, but they're never the dominant feature. In real life, music doesn't play when something scary happens. The lack of music makes the scene feel real, and therefore scares us more because it's easier to relate to.

I also don't think fear of a jump scare is a legitimate tactic. You should fear whatever's happening in the movie, not a loud sound or something that makes you jump a bit. More often than not, I find that once a jump scare happens, the tension disappears. The jump scare is like a peak, so the movie fluctuates between peaks and low points. It's fine for movies to have peaks, but things should keep building after a peak, not die down substantially after one moment.

It's all about what happens after the jump scare. Going back to the hand-on-a-shoulder example, this is a bad jump scare because what happens after is almost always just a conversation between the two characters. That's not scary. If something scary happens after the jump scare, at least the tension is still there and the tension can continue to build up.

I haven't been able to enjoy horror games, because I'm basically immune to jumpscares. They just don't cut it for me, I don't even skip a heartbeat. I'm a little bitch when it comes to ambiance, though. All it takes is some isolation, ambient noise and the thought that something could pop up behind me to keep me on my toes. Do you know what the last game that managed to scare me was? Minecraft. The thought that an enemy could spawn right behind me with no warning at any moment freaked me out so much I build open pit mines instead of exploring caves like a sensible person would. No game since then has managed to scare me.

I can just add sugar onto anything and make it taste sweet, but if I add too much, it becomes nauseaous.

Jump scares do add to the suspense, but the point is that it's just very cheap and lazy. Anybody can make a movie with jump scares. It takes real creativity to make something that scares the fuck out of you without relying on them.
User avatar #399634 - wallbuilder (06/30/2015) [-]
Yeah, but true fear is way more interesting than jump-scares. Jump-scares are shallow as fuck. Anything can do jump-scares. The problem with the horror genre is that everyone is so accustomed to horror and it's always "Just a movie". People consume more media than ever before by several fuckloads so we're all very accustomed to media. I wish horror could be as good as it used to be, I really do. But it's run it's course. There can be a few neat little concepts. But for the most part, I think it's done.
