It's not even that scary.

It's atmosphere and sense of dread is what makes it get under your skin. Not to mention the killer, 80's retro vibe score which is one of my favourite's of the year.

This is why horror degraded so much after the 80s slasher flicks.

No, it degraded because the majority of the horror flicks use the same mechanics over and over with no originality at all

Didn't you read what I said? The majority of the horror flicks started using same mechanics over and over again = it degraded. It happened because the audiences for that sort of genre re-making were mostly teenagers and young adults looking for cheap thrills, they wanted to be scared by blood fountains and cheap visual effects. Real horror was never about just getting scared, it was a regular movie that happened to have underlying horrific themes, fear of the unknown in our own real world, movies like The Haunting, Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, those movies primarily talk about something else. Of course, even the slasher genre gave us unforgettable gems like Texas Chainsaw Massacre (not a drop of blood was spilled), Evil Dead or Scream in the 90s, but in essence, horror was always just one color on the psychological palette.
