Probably thinking supernatural horror mostly. Best examples would be the Conjuring films. Maybe slashers too but they seem too obviously bad to even watch at all. I find a lot of Carpenter films to be really boring too with the obvious except of The Thing. Carpenter films are often really slow and boring. Ghost of Mars is an exception, and its sci-fi horror/thriller/action.
The boomer films I've watched recently have been very hit or miss but I think I'm understanding why, its because supernatural horror is mostly just boring to me. Carrie was bad, I only started watching it because it starts with a nude scene of a dozen schoolgirls in a locker room, obviously played by older women.
Black Sunday (1960) was really really good - it has some supernatural but its also Italian, drama and black and white so its flavoured in a really distinct way. All the Body Snatchers films are good with the first being by far the best.
The Cabin in the Woods (2011/2012) was good because it was satirical, same with M3gan. The other regular films about scary dolls like Annabelle just put me to sleep.
Maybe these films are for women.
