If you don't mind Asian films then give these a try:

To Sir With Love (Korean)
Whispering Corridors (Korean)
Tale of Two Sisters (Korean)
Audition (Japanese)
Ju-on [the first few are quite good] (Japanese)
Ringu (Japanese)
Art of Devil [any except the first one] (Thai)
Shutter (Thai).

They're all quite good, although generally they're more thrillers than horror films.

Vincent Price. Any movie he's been in that looks remotely like horror. House of wax and theatre of blood are some of his best. House of wax has absolutely no blood, yet manages to make a great horror movie. Maybe a bit dated, but judging by your list, you like the older horror movies.

Hell yeah, modern ones are mostly crap slashers or gore fests (Saw, the endless stream of Friday The 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street etc. sequels)

The first saw really isnt a gore fest. If anyone who has watched it thinks otherwise they simply dont know what a gorefest is.

The series as a whole aswell is anything but a slasher series too, again, if people give films they critisize a chance before they consider slamming it im sure their opionion would change.

Suppose. Then again, I'm more into old stuff because back in the 80s and 90s it's just the films seemed better.

MIRRORS!

I watch a lot of horror, thriller and slasher movies but that one messed me up for a day or two. Couldn't walk past a mirror without a shiver down my backbone. And I have a very large mirror in my bedroom...

If you don't mind subtitles, there's a Spanish film called Appeared that I like. It's not really scary (IMO) but it has an interesting story.

Really? IMO it was terrible; why the hell did esseker get repossessed/how; I thought that the demon couldnt interact except through a mirror, and it was sort of stuck through interacting with them, so how the hell did it pull that kid through the floor??? and why would it even leave essekers body into the mirrors?

Also the ending really bothered me... It didnt really coher with what the film said was going on...

All this loss of realism just ruined an otherwise potentially good horror for me

Some of these may be considered slasher/Gore-fests but there still damn good movies.

Burnt Offerings.

More of a 70's horror so, might not be as effect ridden as some of the recent shit that has come out, but, the 70s and 80s were the golden age of american horror films in my book. Everyone should see this movie.

I'm actually really happy to know someone feels the same way. When my friends ask what movies I watch and I say 50-80s horror, I get stupefied looks from people who cant understand why I'd like to watch a black&white film. Coupled with the fact that normally they're the ones watching the gore fest with no plot line, I slowly lose my faith in modern movies. There are the odd ones here and there that I enjoy, like Session 9. I though that had a great atmosphere.

True, there were some strange moments in the movie that didn't quite fit in with the storyline and the ending is a bit weird as well. But it has a very overall creepy atmosphere and that's what got to me I think...

I didn't expect Audition to be mentioned.
