I'd say Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm Street or any of the classics. For some reason I didn't really get scared aside from the jump scares....or is that the point?
Either you have seen them enough, they are that ingrained in the popular psyche, you aren't enjoying them in the right environmental conditions, you have watched too many Horror movies or culture has changed.
Probably all of them. I don't get scared from movies either. The jump scenes aren't supposed to be the scary parts, they are really for writers who are not talented enough to make a slow burn. It is supposed to be the atmosphere that does it.
Still, if we want to get into it, the original Horror, the Gothic novels, they often weren't scary. Indeed, the very first of these works - The Castle Of Otranto is not scary, just camp.
