a horror movie with as few special effects as possible that is still good. A film where the cinematography is so good that it helps create an ambiance of fear to better support the charecters. Not that i dont like gore or anything, i just miss being afraid.

Hmm how about The Wolfman with Lon Chaney and Bela Lugosi. Or The Walking Dead with Boris Karloff, The Beast Within, The Bat Peolpe, The Return of Dracula and The Vampire. I've got 15 or more that I could add to this but thought these would be a good start.

I know a lot of people didn't like it, but i thought "The Strangers" was a very creepy movie. One thing i liked about it is that something like this could actually happen. People are so screwed up in the head any more that it wouldn't surprise me if something like this happened.

Lets see, minimal SFX, good cinimatography, and scary? Try INLAND EMPIRE. Or THE WICKERMAN. Or SPOORLOOS aka THE VANISHING. Or FIRE WALK WITH ME. Or THE INNOCENTS. Or WE ARE WHAT WE ARE. Or THE LAST WAVE. Or THE RIVERS EDGE...

                                                             Hope this helps.

I didnt care for THE STRANGERS cause everyone I know would have kicked their ass and had them begging for mercy, if they werent out right eliminated. Just a couple of dickweeds taking advantage of failry chickenshit victims with no clue or guts. Just my opinion. There is creepier shit than that happening every day in big cities around the world. Only good moment was stolen from HALLOWEEN, where the victim is on the phone and you can see the mask coming in and out of the shadows. JMO.

You have to think though, not everyone in this world is a bad ass and a lot of people would panic in a situation like that. I am from Tennessee and i know, most of my friends, with the exception of one, would have kicked the shit out of them. That doesn't mean that all people are like that though.

Also i would recommend "Suspiria." It probably won't scare the shit out of you, but the lighting and the cinematography is amazing. He doesn't use many effects, but when he does he goes over the top. I also recommend most of his movies. Dario Argento is amazing.
