    I've got a horror movie night with a bunch of friends soon and am looking for suggestions for horror movies.

    We're not huge fans of total gore we are more hoping for suspenseful scary movies like the original Halloween.

    Black and White way back in time and zombies are not allowed. We would be bored by black and white and would spend too much time criticizing zombie apocalypse survival strategies to be scared.

    So to summarize: Suspenseful, not a lot of gore, some nudity is A OK as long as it's still scary and not a sexploitation =P

    Any ideas?

    I'd recommend, A Tale Of Two Sisters (Korean films always seem to freak me out more).

    Why not do marathons of some of the classics? Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween, that sort of thing.

    Uhh...Because that would make SENSE...DUH. We don't like doing that =P

    I shall throw this to the person hosting the partaay

    Although it is quite likely we have seen most of them (except for halloween oddly enough) before and are therefore less scared. Especially when the suspense horror stuff relies so much on you being on the edge of your seat constantly.

    Hrm. Any other Korean horrors you can recommend while I go type "A Tale Of Two Sisters" in Wikipedia? :)

    Saw I, Jaws, Carrie, The Omen, An American Werewolf in London.. Definitely Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street.

    Well, if you haven't seen it before, try the Japanese Ring series. Ring, Rasen, Ring 2 and Ring 0: Birthday.

    There's also The Decent, but I recommend seeing if you can get hold of the original cut. The North American release apparently cut out a minute off the ending, because apparently "American viewers didn't like its "uber-hopeless finale"".

    I also agree with this, but don't go too many sequels in if you're not looking for much gore. While I love the Saw series, what was once a trip to psychological horror lane quickly turned off onto torture porn horror avenue.

    I own all the Saw movies and only keep buying them to say "I own all the Saw movies" the first second and third are the only ones I fully enjoyed and the first is by far the best.

    28 Days Later is great, not a huge fan of the sequel though.

    The Descent is one of my favorite horror films!!! DAMN!!! Can't believed I blanked on that one all day. And I'm a little pissed I didn't see this "uber-hopeless" ending! WTF! Stupid North Americans like me...

    Great list, it's going right in the facebook inbox of the guy having the party.

    This rocks because I see lots of great horror movies but if someone asks me to name them I can't :(

    GREAT Suggestions so far :D

    You say that like it's a bad thing! :sigh:
    Saw is always good for a fright night! But I agree with the previous posts on the Japanese/Chinese/Korean horrors.
    Watch Dark Water, the Japanese one. Scared the shit out of me. I watched it and then fell asleep at a friends place when I was in the UK and woke up to see a water mark on his roof and I think I shat myself...
