"Horror is often about creating discomfort, but psychological horror goes for psychological fears more. We get to the inside of these morally ambiguous people's minds. Those films try to explore darker parts of our minds that sometimes we repress or just don't want to admit. No wonder it's the favorite horror subgenre of so many people. Since they often overlap with psychological thrillers, it can be hard to tell them apart.
Hopefully these 10 selections on the list will appeal to those who're looking for films that are heavier on the psychological horror side rather than the thriller. This subgenre has given us great movies like "Jacob's Ladder," "The Vanishing," "The Silence of the Lambs" and most recently, "Saint Maud," which maybe should've been here also but it needs its time. Hopefully it'll find its audience. Some of those films reached cult film status and got popular among some fans, while the rest were ignored, but all of them deserve a certain kind of attention."
