There is one called "1408" about a reporter doing a report on a hunted room and "Rec" which is about a reporter and her cameraman.

Saw movies are gory, and Final Destination movies are kind of gory. Case 39 was pretty good as well. One Missed Call. The Unborn.


"'Colie, you should never be surprised when people treat you with respect. You should expect it.'
I shook my head. 'You don't know--' I began. But, as usual, she didn't let me finish.
'Yes,' she said simply, 'I do know. I've watched you, Colie. You walk around like a dog waiting to be kicked. And when someone does, you pout and cry like you didn't deserve it.'
'No one deserves to be kicked,' I said.
'I disagree,' she said flatly. 'You do if you don't think you're worth any better...'"

1408 was awesome. Paranormal Activity still creeps me the hell out. I also think Signs has some pretty damn scary moments. Saw's a good movie even though I wasn't scared at any point during it, but it's worth a watch for the storyline alone.

I'd say if you're going to watch Saw, you should watch them all. I think the story is MUCH better as a whole than individual movies.

I wouldn't recommend Paranormal Activities because I found myself sleeping through parts of it, too boring, dull and unimpressive for me. If you like movies of, "AAAAH! THE DOOR SWUNG OPEN BY ITSELF, AAAAHHHH!", you'll like Paranormal Activities.

Saw is more of "gore porn" as some of them have next to no plot. Again though, it depends what you find scary. Some parts of Saw were amazing but others got repetitive.

A movie that has a good plot, gore, may freak you out and certainly has deep messages is Salo. Many countries have outright banned it, while others imposed restrictions of 18+. If you don't have a strong stomach, don't watch it. The gore isn't the same as in Saw with people getting torn apart by various contraptions. For example, in one part, all the teenagers are chained by the necks and forced to crawl along the floor like dogs. One of the teen girls is given mashed potatoes but sharp metal nails are hidden inside it. She bites down, her cheeks and mouth are torn apart, etc... . At the very end, there's a brutal torture scene (no audio on the torture, it was edited out) and almost everyone gets mutilated, many of them causing death.

Green Mile has some gore scenes here and there but the majority isn't terribly scary, although it does have many deep messages.

If you really want to scare yourself, watch Martyrs. It's in French, so if you don't like subtitles then don't bother, but that movie scared the crap out of me. REC's a good choice as well--I wouldn't even bother with Quarantine, though. REC is much scarier. I really liked Insidious, as well. I agree with 1408 too, it's a fantastic horror movie. If you can get your hands on any Japanese horror films (not the Western versions, but the originals) those are supposed to be really scary as well. Funny Games wasn't scary so much as screwed up, if you're into that kind of thing. I've never seen Salo but I've heard good things about it.

Oh god, let's see...
The Strangers, The Thing, Hellraiser (but only the first/second ones), Creep (lots of plot holes, but really creepy in my opinion), Let Me In, Killer Klowns from Outer Space (hilarious movie, even more hilarious if someone has a fear of clowns), The Hills Have Eyes (if you're willing to sit through some extreme moments- i.e. rape), Halloween (the original masked slasher movie), Shadow (again, not much plot and some torture porn, but awesome in my opinion), and Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Hope I gave you some options

Insidious was really good actually. It's so old school, very Poltergeist at times, but very enjoyable.

Forgot about Creep. That's a good one, too. Although the main character is a tad annoying.

Oh definitely, but that scene where the guy plays surgery gave me chills. I never get bothered by movies but I had to look away. With a little more elaboration that villain could've easily been up there with Michael Meyers and Jason and all them.

I thought of a few other movies which you may like, Jeepers Creepers I and II. It's more of a horror movie involving a non-human creature killing people as opposed to humans killing humans. Also, Session 9, Children of the Corn (based on Stephen King's book of a cult of homicidal children who worship a mysterious entity), and Hostel I and II ("gore porn" like the Saw movies).

When he was imitating one of his victims...oh my god. I couldn't handle that part.

Oh yeah. I hardly ever get creeped out by horror movies but that had so many amazing moments. Like it's incredibly frustrating how many times he just gets up and walks it off and how many plot holes there are, but just watching it for the sake of enjoying it makes for a sleepless night.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre - TRUE STORY



"Life isn't about how popular you are... What girl or boy you are dating or who you know. Life is about always being true to who you are or what you believe in. Never let anyone convince you that their way is better than your way. In the end all we have is our hearts... and our minds. This is the reason why we sing... this is the reason why we cry... this is why we live."

Not entirely a true story as it's a mash of a few real people with a fictional plot. Ed Gein (who is not a serial killer despite the statements by misguided people) did wear human-skin clothing, however, he never had a family with him who ate humans as well. That part can be attributed to cannibalistic clans or families, such as the well-known Sawney Bean clan in the 1400s-1500s. Although the validity and accuracy of reports are questioned, the clan had roughly 50 people and killed and consumed well over 1,000 people throughout Scotland. However, the inspiration for the movie is accredited to Ed Gein and not the Sawney Bean clan, so for that reason, it's mostly a fictional movie.
