I don't care if it saves time, money etc. it rarely looks right to me when they use CGI in kill scenes.

The F13th reboot for example. The ax blade sticking out of Lawrence's chest was so obviously CGI it took me of the movie.

Other than that it wasn't really noticeable in the reboot.
Really? It didn't take me out of the movie, I thought it was executed fairly well, especially considering all of the other horrible CGI kill sequences I've seen.

But yeah, CGI in horror movies does tend to be lazily applied. I like when it's done in a subtle manner or a way where you can't even guess what's CGI & what's being done with prosthetics & make-up.
