Psychological horror films are my favorite.
They're not quite "scary movies," but Jacob's Ladder and The Invitation are two phenominal psychological films.
Been meaning to watch the Babadook for weeks.
The Ring scared the bejesus out of me when I was younger. I really wanna watch the original Japanese version.
Was just going to post Jacob's Ladder. It's very psychological and gets that great "uneasy" feeling across that it's meant to.
I like horror movies and want them to do their job and be scary, but it's so hard to find nowadays. Honestly, last time I was creeped out was the first paranormal activity. Sure the franchise (and found footage genre) has largely gone to the dogs, but it had a uniqueness and creepy factor.
Did anyone see Lights Out? Was based on a YouTube short film. Both are actually really good. I recommend youtubing the short.
