I'm not sure what directors like Carpenter truly aim for with movies like this one... The horror aspect of it certainly comes in play. It keeps you on your toes, scares you, disturbs you, and puts images in your head that won't leave you for weeks, if not months.
I'm a huge fan of horror, but this is not a movie I would ever add to my movie collection.
Horror movies that are pleasantly frightening: Disturbing Behavior, Nightmare on Elm Street series, The Frighteners (with Michael J Fox). These could go either way: Ghost Ship, House on Haunted Hill, Wishmaster.
