Here are a few (mostly older) horror movies you might keep passing up on Netflix or at your local video store (are there any of those left?) but check them out. Bet they'll scare you. 

The Descent: A group of girls goes cave diving only to find some thrills they weren't looking for. Lots of action, very scary.
My Little Eye: Five people go to live in an isolated house and have their time inside filmed in order to win a million bucks. If one leaves, they all lose. Very claustrophobic, you'll be scratching at the walls.
Dead Snow: Nazi Zombies. Enough said.

Ginger Snaps: A young girl is bitten and turned into a werewolf, and her sister fights to save her from herself.
Frailty: Father wrangles his two sons into killing people for God. Written and directed by Bill Paxton. This movie made me very uncomfortable.
The House of the Devil: College student goes to babysit in a creepy old house where things are exactly what they seem. A throwback to 70s/early 80s horror. Nicely filmed. Classic scene to The Fixx's "One Thing Leads to Another."
The Hidden: An alien that likes hot cars and hot music takes over people's bodies and goes on a killing spree. So maybe it's science fiction, but I threw it in anyway.
Seventh Moon: A couple honeymooning in China are pursued by ancient creatures and must find a way to survive the night. Will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Borderland: Friends on vacation in Mexico cross paths with a human sacrifice cult. Happened to me just the other day. Very violent. Sean Astin has a small (as small as a hobbit) role.
The Orphanage: Woman searches for her missing son. Creepy children, creepy masks. Jump-back car accident scene and an "Oh, that's fucked" ending. 
Cold Prey: Snowboarders get pursued by axe-wielding maniac. Sounds horrible, but it's not. Pulse-pounding. 
Anything you'd like to add to this list? Found some gems of your own? Let me know!
