A Friday the 13th Blog: Psychological Horror in Film

So let’s give Haleigh Foutch the introduction in “9 Psychological Horror Movies That Will Seriously Mess with Your Head” on COLLIDER.COM via THISISHORROR.CO.UK:  . . .  you won’t see titles like SILENCE OF THE LAMBS or LES DIABOLIQUES — they’re some of the best movies ever made in the psychological horror genre, but their effect is different.  What you will find here are a whole bunch of mentally taxing freakout films that will prod at your psyche and put you through the ringer.  It’s . . . obviously nowhere near a comprehensive list, it’s an assortment of my favorite (or perhaps most dreaded) movies that mangled my mind.  Along the same train of thought as my list of visually stunning movies, sometimes I just like to celebrate a few of my favorites without getting into qualifiers and rankings.  Think of this as a starting ground, a conversation starter, and a few of my personal favorites, and be sure to keep that conversation going sound off in the comments with the movies that messed you up the most.

So which movies are they?  Well, starting with JACOB’S LADDER, and ending with THE VANISHING (the original foreign language version, NOT the 1993 remake in English), highlights include some I’ve seen like the two just mentioned, but several I haven’t as well, so I know how I may be spending my evening.  It is, after all, Friday the 13th.  So, for those who would like to share the misery — or at least enjoy some of it for oneself — for the rest of the list press here.
