That was cool.  These days, the audiences are not loud like that.  The last horror film I saw in theatres (which was Frailty, back in 2001), there was nothing but silence during the scary parts and the theatre had quite a few people in it

I don't think horror movies really became gory until like the 70s or 80s, I'm sure underground movies before were gory, but the mainstream was quite light.

So audiences reactions and facial expressions of horror showed how relatively new it was all then. It's the shock of the new you know? I could be wrong though, because I didn't really live back in the 60s or 70s, 80s, etc, etc.

But Halloween isn't exactly gory, but the concept of the masked killer was new so people weren't jaded yet. And I say 'masked' because in 1960's Peeping Tom, the killer didn't wear one, but killed women anyway.

That's how the audience sounded when I watched the conjouring.  (Which is the scariest movie I've seen in a long time).
