This Friday the 13th, let's contemplate the state of horror films today.

Actress and horror film icon Dee Wallace spoke to FOX411 Friday about her past films - including "The Howling," "Cujo," and "The Hills Have Eyes" - and what she thinks of the genre today.

"A true horror film really develops its characters, really has a story line, not 'Hi, here's the six characters, watch how gruesomely we can kill them all off.' So I don’t think you have a lot of true horror films anymore," Wallace said.

The actress-turned-self-help guru also picked the film that would scare her most as an audience member:

"'Cujo,' hands down. Especially now that I’m a mother," Wallace said. "'Cujo' could really happen, and has really happened."

Wallace also shared stories from working with Steven Spielberg on "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" and talked about her new project, "MySelfie," a toy designed to help kids with self esteem.
