    OK, I would love some recommendations on the above. Things like Jeepers Creepers and Scream. Tense, scary but without the latest trend of realistic torture.

    No Martyrs or "The Hills Have eyes" please.

    Thanks!

    Not my genre, but I remember ...Dead End being quiet entertaining when I saw it a few years back. Not sure that the trailer does it any favours.

    Teeth. Fucking awesome film.

    If you like slashers you'd enjoy Hatchett a lot as well, although make sure you've seen all the classics or you might miss a reference.

    The Mist.

    Let The Right One In, although I find it hard to classify as straight up horror.

    Coming soon, Paranormal Activity.

    The Grumpy Vaper

    Dead End looks great. It's torture free right?

    Donkey Punch is semi-decent for a thriller horror as well. Nice bewbs in there as well.

    Drag Me to Hell is good.

    And A Tale of Two Sisters is great.

    Actually the first Coen bros movie was a horror/thriller called Blood Simple and it's pretty good.

    Speaking of spanish movies, Tesis and Los Sin Nombre are two great spanish thrillers.
    There┤s also Ne Le Dis └ Personne - Tell No One, a fantastic french thriller.
    Frailty is another great thriller, an underrated gem that proves that Matthew McConaughey can actually do something good.

    Ils (Them) is a brilliant, tense horror movie, which never resorts to gore for cheap thrills.

    The best horror film I know of is a Korean one called:

    A Tale of Two Sisters

    Stunningly good and has no torture.

    The Mist was the first one that came to mind for me. Drag Me To Hell is great fun too.

    Let The Right One In, is another brilliant vampire film. And I got a completely different impression of the film than most.

    Please do not read the following spoiler unless you have seen the film. It is such a large spoiler it would ruin the film. (And the film is brilliant and deserves to be watched).

    I fealt that the vampire girl was just using the boy. She essentially groomed him as a replacement for her last slave. (I felt that the man she refered to has her father was actually someone she had previously groomed. I got the impression they had been together since he was a child but he became a bit of a liability now he is older. So she replaced him). I know it was supposed to be a love story but I only saw one of the couple actually in love. She just seemed to be doing everything she could to gain his trust.

    'Jacob's Ladder'.

    Also stuff like Session 9 and John Carpenter's 'The Thing' (probably the most perfect film ever imo).

    If you're not turned off by black and white/slow-paced/intelligent movies, try The Innocents, The Haunting (the original) and Night of the Demon.

    Hammer's Quatermass & The Pit is a great bit of sci-fi/horror, as is The Stone Tape, a teleplay by Nigel Kneale, the creator of Quatermass.

    The BBC's MR James' Ghost Stories for Christmas are superb, especially A Warning to the Curious, Lost Hearts and more recently, A View from a Hill. Also try the B&W TV play Oh Whistle And I'll Come to You.
