Yes, many don't consider this horror, but it has horrific elements. If you don't care for it, that's fine. I hope there are others here that may interest you if you were curious enough to click.

I loved this so much when I was about 9, but some scenes gave me chills to this day. It stayed in my head and I thought about the plot for a long time after.

Carrie (1976)
Very little blood in the movie, very little gore, but it's the growing tension and the fear of being ostracized that makes this movie so frightening.

Frailty (2002)
What's scarier than being a child and thinking your father is having a psychotic break down? Thinking that he is on a rampage to cleanse the world of "demons" and wants your help...

Kalifornia (1993)
More thriller than classic "horror", but what's creepier than being stuck on a road trip with a serial killer and his emotionally immature, disturbed "woman"?



Plus David Duchovny was so hot back in 1993. I miss 1993. Sort of.

Manhunter (1986)


Very 1986, love the music, love William Petersen in this role. VERY under-appreciated movie. The atmosphere in this, Petersen as Will Graham exudes angst and intelligence and I found myself thinking about the film for days after...

Just. Creepy. If you have the patience to sit through a slow-moving Cronenberg film.

This is a clip not a trailer. This might not be technically classified as a horror, but I think it's pretty darn freaky!

Couldn't find a trailer for this, but I remember it being great. Don't get it confused with the new movie with the same name (2011 or 2012 movie). This is a foreign movie with subtitles.

Much better than the remake. And very, very creepy.



I would not want to see this at night, alone, with the lights off....!

Just what it says. There is nothing wrong with loving slasher flicks, splatter punk, grade b movies, etc but these movies tend to be much "slower" paced and are perfect for people that like to analyze movies.
