I couldn't walk around my house at night after I saw Nosferatu. I'd Imagine Count Orlok would be on the other side of the hallway if I opened the door.

The Sadist is a very unsettling film.

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?


If you've never watched this before, this clip features a great scene that you might want to save for when you actually view the movie for the first time.

You got it, mate.  I was, and still am, terribly horrified each time I see this movie.  What makes it even more horrifying is that, as we speak, this type of treatment of a helpless person is most likely taking place somewhere here in America or abroad.

The remake with the Redgrave sisters pales in comparison to this one.  I've never seen anything like this one before.

I'd also like to recommend Patty McCormack's role as little Rhoda Penmark in The Bad Seed. Making that the film that it was, was that films including homicidal children just weren't around in that day and age, raising the shock value even more. 

But, the way kids behave today in some cases,  makes it rather tame by today's standards.

The Sadist is a very unsettling film.

While minimal in it's gore factor, the atmosphere and Gothic chills of Nightmare Castle from 1965 made it a great movie, that and the lovely Barbara Steele. 

I can also say the same for her earlier 1960 movie, Castle Of Blood, aka Danse Macabre.  She was absolutely georgeous in that movie. In fact, because of her in that movie, I think I'd like to take up wandering the halls of abandoned castles just to see what I can find  BounceGiggle

My pick is DeadGirl.  A little yuckiness with the bullet hole wound in her stomach otherwise just creepy and horrific.  Frank Darabont's The Mist freaked me out but had no gore.

Fiend Without A Face! Good call! WNEW 5's Creature Features back in the day TeddyR

Oh yes, almost forgot this little number!  I admit that the sounds they made when they were invisible scared me as a kid, and that I had a few nightmares about the creatures.

What really scared me even moreso was when they appeared, looking like little brains with spinal cords and eyestalks. 

I laugh now though, and even moreso at the farting noise they made when their blood bubble out when they were shot, lol  BounceGiggle

Another good one that dosen't get mentioned often is Daughter Of The Mind with Ray Milland. He plays a scientist tortured by what appears to the the ghost of his recently deceased 11 year old daughter, or is it? 

You decide in this oft-forgotten psychological thriller.

Thanks for the tip.  I haven't seen Daughter of the Mind.  It sounds like one I would enjoy.  I like character studies where you aren't sure what is real or not.  On that same note, I also like movies that show characters as victims of their own mistakes.  It is especially satisfying with a character that feels they will gain a huge amount in the end.  MacBeth is a classic example with Throne of Blood being a good foreign (non-western) adaptation.

Another one I might not have mentioned is a personal fave of mine, Don't be Afraid Of The Dark from 1973, now re-made and due out this year. I remember when it premiered on TV back then, and I had some good nightmares that night.   Buggedout

There is a good line in the sand between reality and fantasy in this one, even though the viewer is aware of what's happening from the outset. Very eerie in that 70's TV movie sort of way that can't be reproduced, and highly recommened

I had been seeing this movie in suggestions from Amazon recently and my curiosity has been peaked further with your recommendation.

Psycho did a pretty good job, and I don't really remember much gore at all.
I've heard that The Human Centipede didn't have too much gore, but was psychologically scary.  I haven't seen it, but it is on my list.
