Tips for Horror/slasher writing?

Hey guys, I just joined and thought this might be a good place to pick up some tips...

One of my current projects is a simple horror story in which a girl returns to her family home for the Christmas holidays only to wake up to witness someone murdering her parents. I've never tried to MAKE anything scary before and it's so much harder than I thought. The story's inspired by slasher films I loved watching growing up...but there's just one problem...nothing is scary anymore!

Any tips??
