although not technically horror movies, they will either scare you or haunt you for life
requiem for a dream unrated directors cut

I'm not usually scared by horror movies either (Linda Blair's headspin in The Exorcist cracked me up. I mean, how did it not twist off? ). The horror movies I like are more atmospheric than scary--they're disturbing and have creepy moments, but they're scary in a quiet way.

The Devil's Backbone (Spanish)
The Audition (Japanese)
The Others
The Ring
The Changeling
Burnt Offerings
May (kind of funny)

I wouldn't say May was scary at all. It tried to be disturbing but came across as goofy. I seem to be in the minority though.

Oh, and I forgot to mention this earlier. Try watching something by David Lynch. While not "horror" in the traditional sense, Lynch's films have a tendency to be truly creepy and disturbing. The best examples are Eraserhead and Lost Highway.

I bought this set used for $6. I hadn't seen anything about this set, so I thought it was a good deal. The prints are in pretty bad shape. Audio is pretty crappy. All are full screen. Kiss Me Kill Me is better seen on Blue Underground's Baba Yaga DVD. You mentioned Pieces and it was nice to see the unrated version. I had only seen the R-rated VHS.

I think you can find it new for around $8. Not bad for 4 horror movies.... but just be prepared for less than acceptable transfers.

For serious gore and a great plot, check out Day of the Dead, the first sequel to Night of the Living Dead. It's only out on Video right now, but it's my all-time favorite horror movie. It's got a very realistic feel to it, with nothing mainstream about it. Definitly a must see with a great atmosphere and memorable characters. The last installment of the trilogy, Dawn of the Dead is equally as entertaining. George Romero is the king of horror!

Dawn of the Dead was the first sequel to Night of the Living Dead. Day of the Dead is the 3rd movie. They go in order: Night -> Dawn -> Day. Dawn is considered the best of the series. And I believe there was supposed to be a 4th called Dusk of the Dead

I can't beleive I messed up the order... what a dolt. I knew the correct order, I mean all you have to do is look at the names for crying out loud. What a blunder... and I call myself a George Romero fan.

Yeah really. You chose that over these suggestions? You don't trust us do you? Rent Day of the Dead, and tell me that's not a good movie.

Good God. The Denist is terrible (not to mention, it's not a horror movie). I caught it years ago one night on cable. Please for your own sake and the sake of your unborn children...stay far away...

I think Jeepers Creepers was a pretty good horror movie as well as Ghost Ship. Although Ghost Ship was more suspenseful than scary. Jeepers Creepers on the other hand is a great horror movie, looking forward to the 2nd in a couple of weeks.

I think Prince of Darkness deserves a place on the list of potentials.
