    Hey :mwuaha:

    Can anyone suggest some decent horror movies that have good plots and are thought-provoking (for a horror movie).

    Please don't suggest torture porn, slasher movies or really slow-paced movies.

    Thrillers/chillers are ok.

    Thanks.

    What about Invasion of the Body Snatchers (both 50's and 90's one - approx). They are incredibly good, and suspense and atmosphere is their thing (akin to The Thing).

    It doesn't have to be mainstream.

    I watched a French horror/suspense film the other day which was pretty good - it was called Haute Tension (High Tension) I think.

    Sorry. Seen that. Terrible low budget film (not that I'm against low budget films but with this one you could really tell).

    The Borderlands. Didn't get a wide release, quite original for a found footage movie and Mark Kermode gave it a good review.

    Eyes without a Face (1962)?
    The Romero films?
    Don't Look Now (1973)?

    Hmm...Mark Kermode...don't really trust his reviews too much. What's it about then?

    Alleged strange goings on in a West Country Church, a team of Vatican investigators are sent to investigate. Which sounds crap, but I can only say that it deals with what sounds like a routine plot in a much more inventive way than you would think.

    In tone (not plot) it is reminiscent of Kill List.
