Thats what Fandango.com discovered when it recently gave film fans the titles of upcoming releases and asked which ones sounded like fright flicks.
About 33 percent think The Departed, a gritty street drama starring Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio, sounds like it was a horror movie and 28 percent picked another DiCaprio drama, Blood Diamond, which is actually about a search for a rare African jewel.
Fifteen percent think Mel Gibsons upcoming Mayan drama, Apocalypto, sounds like a scary movie, and 12 percent feel that way about the domestic drama, Running With Scissors.
Seven percent think Open Season, an animated film featuring Martin Lawrence as a bear, sounds more like a fright flick.
Finally, 5 percent are convinced that Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutchers new Coast Guard action flick, The Guardian, is really a horror film.
