I don't find a lot of the entries on this or the HONF page to be scary. Do a lot of people here live sheltered lives? Gore isn't scary and a lot of the entries are more Fridge Horror than either HONF or ANF. I doubt a lot of entries were meant to be scary. Real Life definitely qualifies, but come on...
That's just your opinion, don't put down others and their examples just because they find something scary and you don't. It's a YMMV entry for a reason.
Gore isn't scary? Dude, is it that tricky to understand that seeing somebody's brains blown out might unsettle a guy a little?
All too often, the reaction to gore in a horror movie is less "AAAAAAGH!" and more "Cool!" Because of this, there are more and more instances in film where the latter is clearly the response that they are going for. Gore is unsettling when it's used sparingly or to punctuate scares. When it's just gore for gore's sake, fewer and fewer people find that scary.
While this is YMMV I'm sorry, but some things are a little lame to be scared over.
