Due to the more realistic FX and relaxing of standards, though, almost any horror movie made since the 1980s (or even late '70s) is explicitly graphic and violent, in terms of how they are well, well beyond what audiences were protected from in earlier decades. I actually found TV's "Killing Eve" to be more initially unsettling (arguably sans the excessive blood/gore), simply due to the lackadaisical way the chipper villain co-protagonist was causally killing "average" people -- along with how the reviewers and part of the audience just set that aside to be fascinated over the "complicated" relationship between Sandra Oh's and Jodie Comer's characters. (It took the combination of both to tilt a quizzical eyebrow.) But those kinds of brutal antiheroes pervade modern television and cinema, with respect to even dark comedies. We seem to just selectively (or even randomly?) choose certain things to be disgusted by while being immunized to the horde of similar circumstances routinely transpiring in even non-horror dramas. It seems to be the psychologically evil nature of serial killer movies & shows -- the fact of their monsters not being supernatural (usually), that they're real or potentially real possibilities -- that makes them disturbing to people. Though, again, in that subgenre the veneer of their "scariness" and the plot scenarios for them have been exhausted. They've become as boring or ineffective as anything else in horror -- if one was literally beforehand only watching out of a desire to be frightened. That's why the clever, unorthodox ones or those riddled with soap-opera elements, or action-adventure, etc are about all I can [voluntarily] sample these days. (Apart from the "historical" ones I get accused of being out of the loop on: "I don't care, woman, we're going to finally watch those Italian cannibal films tonight. It's time to crawl out from underneath the rock."). Speaking of "soap-opera horror", though, I remember it becoming a late ordeal to trudge through a binge-watching of True Blood (I couldn't stand irritating Sookie Stackhouse or probably any other character by the end). And in terms of "horror westerns", I never could get past the first couple of episodes of the second season of "Wynonna Earp". Admittedly, though, that was probably due to all the political preaching in the subtext (which can be nauseating in its own way).
