Greetings, ATS!

I have a favor to ask. If you've seen a scary movie, documentary, or television show, please share.

Let me clarify my definition of scary: I don't want gory slasher films. No Friday the 13th or Halloween recommendations, please.

Some of the movies I've found interesting and somewhat scary (or suspenseful):
Signs
The sixth sense
Paranormal Activity
Blair Witch Project
The Others

I know a lot of people will laugh at my choice of "scary" movies, but that's okay. Looking forward to your suggestions!

Thanks a ton,
smylee

One of my favorites.

The Dead (came out in 2010 or 2011)

It's a zombie movie, if you're into those check it out.

That looks perfect. Any idea where to find it? Netflix and iTunes don't have it, YouTube just has the trailer. I kinda doubt the mom and pop video store in town has it.
Thanks!

For scary without being gory and in keeping with the movies you have listed, I would go with:

The Skeleton Key

The Last Exorcism

Paranormal Activity 2 & 3

The Lovely Bones

I myself prefer gore, the more the merrier! But these movies should suit you well.
Make some popcorn and have fun!

Yeah, both of those were disturbing.

My husband hates scary movies, so I usually have to brave it by myself. I was the only one in the theatre for paranormal activity three, and I found myself wishing I hadn't chosen to sit in the middle of the theatre.

Since I've gotten older I no longer like watching scary movies. Especially the slash and bloody graphic movies. The only movie I enjoyed watching was the movie "The Omen." I think they made 5 of them after the original. It's a take on the rise of the Anti-Christ and the last one deals with the birth of the savior. The best depiction of the bibles "book of revelation" I've ever seen.

Here you go:

In the Mouth of Madness (John Carpenter)
Insidious (underrated very creepy)

I can't think my mind is numb but both of those are good flicks.

ShadowAgent nailed it with "The Serpent and the Rainbow".

I still fall back on the origional Texas Chainsaw Masacre, grew up not too far from the inspiration for that mocie.

Another psychological scary, but good movie is The Lady In White.
