SisterJude : Yes, definitely agree- I think it’s because the psychological scares me more than the on-screen gore. I LOVE Paranormal Activity (the first 2) and even though not technically even a horror movie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind- the concept I found both fascinating and terrifying.
slomotion : This is a recommendation for everyone, but I’m tagging my fellow twisted sister on this one- if you haven’t already seen American Mary, I insist you watch it. It’s a highly original horror that’s gained a cult-like following, excellent, disturbing, and campy (so naturally I loved it).

trekstar : I remember that! That was creepy, but effective. ‘Liberate tutemet ex inferni!’

Coming back to say if you like weird movies The Void. I hated it but visually you might like it if you like weird atomospheric non typical horror movies.
The Taking of Deborah Logan sticks out as memorable (might have been because I worked on a project for Alzheimer’s for some years professionally so it hit close to home for me).
The Loved Ones is a fantastic little film my husband turned me on to.
May is one of my all time favorites. Angela Bettis for life!
Amusement is an older kind of b-movie I still fondly remember.
Also, Inside! Fair warning to pregnant women on this one though. It’s foreign so you have to read the subtitles unless you can understand French. Not the remake, go for the original.
Even though it’s kind of a comedy I love Tusk deeply. I actually love any movie that tortures Justin Long because I can’t stand his face so you can add Drag Me To Hell on that list too.
And finally, the Evil Dead remake. I went into it with the expectation that I would hate it but it 100% won me over.

RobbieAndJuliahaha : I loooooved American Mary!! But I have a long time girl crush on Katherine Isabelle.
Which reminds me, Ginger Snaps (all of them) are fun little films. Not scary, but they hold a special place in my heart for vibe.

Don’t Breathe! Horror movies rarely scare me but this movie was soooo intense! I walked in thinking it’s a thriller- had no idea it was horror cause the trailer didn’t suggest anything like that! But holy crap I had to sit in the theatre lobby for like 15 minutes before I was comfortable enough to drive back home! It’s really good!

+1 for Shutter (Thai version) I watched that when I was a teen and eurrrgh could not sleep properly for a week. PPs have mentioned Ju-On (terrifying), and the South Korean Whispering Corridors saga is pretty good!
To me the Asian horror movies are much scarier than the Hollywood ones, but I did enjoy American remake of The Ring. Samara is one scary SOB.

dannij8918 : Stir of Echos with Kevin Bacon. Seemed to be overshadowed by the Sixth Sense, at the time it came out but I much preferred it over SS.

Babadook never really scared me and I don’t understand the hype. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the Conjuring 1 and 2 but neither was scary.
The Grudge was terrifying, both the Japanese and American versions equally made me uncomfortable and had me checking under beds and closets for a week – I was also a child and then a young teen so there’s that. But I do recommend Thai and Japanese horror films over American ones, some of the stuff the horror directors there come up with is incredibly unsettling.
I’ve gotten less afraid of horror movies as I grew up/older. Thoroughly unsettling one recently is Insidious. Lights Out was also very well done. Train to Busan is cinematographically great but otherwise non-scary. I’m looking forward to the Insidious movie this year and The Nun. I’m also trying to find time for Hereditary. I must say, my favorite horror series so far is The Conjuring series, I’ve become a massive fan of how James Wan does horror.

slomotion : i CANNOT believe I have finally “met” someone who has seen tusk too. haha what a gem!
OP- I can’t pick a particular because I love many different types of scary movies. My genre is usually f*cked up movies that are twisted and have no reason to be seen by normal people 😬
Martyr’s (just re-watched this morning actually..with my cup of coffee. apparently i love to wake up to morbid sh*t)
Human Centipede (only the first one, the 2nd and 3rd movies were terrible)
House of 1000 Corpses – (not scary but just a good classic…and the follow up, Devils Rejects)
The Last House on the Left- told you im not normal lol
ETA- as I’m reading what I wrote……I should prob check into a therapy session. Meh.
