Suggest good psychological horror films :)

Anything with an actual plot, not just some gore film (gore is ok, but i'd rather also have a story :) ).

From recent ones, i liked the Babadook, and It Follows. Both had some weaknesses, but overall they were nice.
Lord of Tears was nice, despite being (very obviously) a cheap production. It did have an adventure game progression.

Adventure game progression, uh? Maybe this old italian movie can do:



(I'm italian and a little old, sorry)

By the way: I like your Chrysalis! Hope this movie give some hints for other games!

"Cemetery Man" in the English title or "Dellamorte Dellamore" in the Italian title...

This is a horror movie that has stuck in my mind as one which has hidden depths beyond the obvious genre into which it could otherwise fall.

I'd say Shutter Island has some good psychological horror.

It Follows is excellent.

Well there are classics like the Shining, Silence of the Lambs?

I saw the film Kill List recently which was quite good. Also, I must admit I thought Harry Potters The Woman in Black was good. And the Orphanage (El Orfanato).

Repulsion (1965), The Vanishing (Dutch version, 1988), Funny Games (Austrian version, 1997), A Tale of Two Sisters (Korean version, 2003), Let the Right One In (Swedish version, 2008). Basically, anything there's a Hollywood remake of, seek out the original.

Also practically the entire David Lynch Ĺ“uvre, from Eraserhead to Fire Walk with Me to Lost Highway to Mulholland Dr. to Inland Empire.
