    Can a movie not be scary without overt horror or slashing? I believe that is what the guys are calling psychologically scary.

    Yes, it can. Maybe my definition of horror and suspense differ. The Sixth Sense: suspense. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: horror.

    I watched the first Paranormal Activity, the cheap one that they filmed for like $20K. That was a scary movie.

    Forgot to mention earlier, I thought Toni Colette did a fantastic job in her role. Her acting was first rate.

    Agreed. She really sold the part.

    I hate to admit it, but that movie scared the dog doodoo out of me.

It is not so much that "gotcha" type of scary, but more psychological as others have said.

    I found myself tensing up during the second screening even though I knew what was going to happen on screen. That's rare for me.
    The Exorcist might be the most terrifying movie made.

    East Asians do psychological horror very well. Try Audition or The Wailing if you don't mind reading subtitles for good films. Also, for much better choreographed action, Asian films such as Ong Bak I and II, Killzone, and The Raid I and II are pretty spectacular. We are not talking about your old school cheesy kung fu flicks or your artsy wire flying like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but fight scenes with traditional SE Asian and other martial arts that look like plenty of extras and stuntmen have broken bones or ended careers from.
