You may want to avoid Event Horizon then, as there is some gore in it.Gee this forum seems to be more active about horror movies than guitar amps
Not gory horror movies!
Spiral - well I'm not a fan of saw movies. and the wolf of snow hollow doesn't have that suspense either, especially the way how in the first 5 minutes someone was already turned inside out...
I like movies like the first Halloween, Get out! is also great.. that kind of suspense
Have to mention the dates not knowing what ones have been remade
The Exorcist (1973)
The Omen (1976)
Salem's Lot (1979)
A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)
Pet Sematary (1989)
Children Of The Corn (1984)
The Lost Boys (1987)
Child's Play (1988)
Maximum Overdrive (1986)
I once came across some Punk Rock Chainsaw Massacre I think it was, movie... it was rated like 3/10 on imdb, so it must be good.Of course there's always the classics. Alien, Silence of the Lambs, The Shining, The Ring, and don't laugh but I honestly don't find the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre gory in any way...but it's sure as hell creepy still to this day lol.
Modern scary movies get a bad rap IMO and are way underrated, there's definitely some outstanding new horror films that yes, rely on atmosphere and vibe more than simply disturbing imagery that just try's to make you vomit (I'm not a gore fan either - like for example the insanely overrated "Saw" series....heh, hot garbage IMO, too much gore to distract you from their lack of true dread/scares/chills).
I love these:
Insidious (there was several sequels but none can touch the original)
The Conjuring Trilogy (the first was epic, the following two not quite but still outstanding - honestly all 3 are great, no clunkers in the series)
It Follows (mentioned already for good reason, has equal parts of suspense, thriller, horror)
Don't Breathe (just the first one, the sequel was rubbish)
Lights Out (short but fuckin' awesome)
Sinister (again, just the original, the follow up was crap)
Annabelle CREATION (not sure how many Annabelle flicks got made, they all sucked except this one, which made up for the flops, it's excellent)
The Descent (ok, this one has some gore but it's sooooo great, the sense of claustrophobia is stellar and has some incred acting)
Ouija Origin of Evil (I believe this was the sequel and it was great where the original sucked)
You're Next (this has a B movie vibe but it's done really well, legit tension and scares, not "jump" stuff)
It (just pt 1, the sequel was pretty bad)
