Psychological horror is a subgenre of horror fiction that relies on characters' fears and emotional instability to build tension. It typically plays on archetypal shadow characteristics embodied by the threat. Psychological horror aims to create discomfort by exposing common or universal psychological vulnerabilities and fears, such as the shadowy parts of the human psyche which most people repress or deny, whereas splatter fiction focuses on bizarre, alien evil to which the average viewer cannot easily relate. - Wikipedia

Great list! Almost all my favorites horror movies are here.I'd like to suggest:
The Haunting (1963)
The Sixth Sense
The Blair Witch Project
Vampyr (1932)
I Walked With A Zombie
The Fall Of The House Of Usher (1928)

Though I thought the 1940 version wasnt that good this list needs Gaslight - possibly the first psychological thriller/horror

I am not seeing how Audition is a psychological film at all
