What about [REC]? For me, the best one I've ever seen, I was around a heart atack while watching! Besides it was recorded at my city, Barcelona. Yes, I'm so proud :)

I've seen all of these except Inside and perhaps The Creeping Flesh (I saw a bunch of those Hammer & similar films with those two years ago, none made a huge impression.) LOVED The Vanishing, I really should see that again. Was so incredibly disappointed with the remake, considering it was the same director. But it was for the American market, from an American studio. Re-Animator is good, but not really scary, I personally think Prince of Darkness is much better. OK, it's silly, and it has Alice Cooper in it, but it has moments of real horror.  Interesting that so many of these movies are recent, or fairly recent. If you want to see something REALLY creepy but not gory this Halloween, get The Changeling with George C Scott. The automatic writing scene creeps me out to this day. "How did you die...how did you die...how did you die..."

I saw The Vanishing (this original Dutch movie) many years ago.  I wish I had NEVER seen it.  This is undoubtedly one of the most frightening and horrible movies I have ever seen.  It stayed with me for years, and just seeing the title again has made me feel sick to my stomach.

I saw "The Vanishing" when I was living in France and it has haunted me ever since. The most horrifying thing about the movie is how ordinary the villain is - a quiet family man. He's not violent or insane. He just has this one little quirk.

I have seen them all, was hoping to discover something new.

I can't say that The Orphanage (original Spanish version) was terrifying. I do think it was a perfect ghost story.. just a great movie in every way. Not terrifying in that it didn't keep me up for nights (The Vanishing did that, thanks), but it's a great movie that was just perfect.

The Haunting of Julia (1976) is the most frightening - but obscure - movie I've seen.  If you enjoyed Paranormal Activity, you should see this.

Martyrs should be on this list.  One of the most disturbing movies I've seen.

The scariest little seen movie of all time is The Peanut Butter Solution

A new one that needs to be added on that list is SINISTER. An instant classic

I couldn't agree more with the choice of "The Vanishing" (European version). I saw this about 20 years ago and it scared me for nights afterwards (and in daylight if I am honest); without doubt the most frightening film I have ever seen and all the more so because there is little actual violence and it's mainly psychological. I LOVED it. DO NOT see the U.S. version. It sucks.

@syzygysb Me too ! Istillthink of it sometime.  I don't recommend it. It more than scary. It traumatizes your brain !

@PurityPrydain You said it, friend. Martyrs hits the trifecta of intelligence and emotional horror and puke-inducing graphic gore. My pick for best horror film of the last decade, if not of all time. 

(I couldn't be bothered to click through that many friggin links just to see a friggin list of 10 titles, but if Martyrs ain't on there I don't regret the decision.)

@RameshThumatiAlagarsamy Nosferatu was a Dracula movie with the name changed.  They couldn't obtain the rights to Bram Stoker's character so they renamed him Nosferatu and made their movie.
