Compendium of Evil

Now my life about horror movies is not blood gore type its more of a chilling experience. I like to watch movies "that has the presence of it & not its appearance" with a story where tension is continually mounting which seizes your curiosity from the start.
I don’t know why the creeps has almost disappeared and is replaced by excessive gore. Gore isn’t scary,it’s disgusting.
I don't like evil dead or exorcist... since its blood gore or some disgusting face-off kinda stuff....(no offense...a lot ta people like em) but the kinda list im saving in a certain fashion where gore cannot be considered but a decent story with mystery & suspense that has a history is involved.
I don't know if I'm the only one who cares, but, maybe I'm saving one poor list from having to do what I'm doing and this is why I have brought this wonderful collection to you.
Please let me know if you guys can help me find great such movies.
Thanks for visiting. Cheers !!
