altered states (1980)

hyunjoongs-eternal-henecian  asked:

I'm a huge horror movie fan and I'm looking for psychological horror/suspense movies. You know, movies with themes you have to study outside of it to understand. Like "As Above So Below" (philosophy) and "The Borderlands" (gods). Any suggestions?

Oh, gosh…I could have sworn I already had a list of psychological horror films, but I can’t find it for the life of me!  Let’s see here:

  • The Vanishing (aka Spoorloos) (1988)
  • Funny Games (1997)
  • Donnie Darko (2001)
  • Cape Fear (1962)
  • Pin… (1988)
