Live Poll: Best Horror Movies based on Atmosphere/Vibe

A lot of horror movies use jumpscares or gore. However, there's also a category that doesn't rely on these aspects and mostly use a scary atmosphere/vibe. These movies seem to have (re)gained more populairy recently. Which of the following movies that, in my opinion, don't rely on jumpscares/gore is your favorite?

Hi SBGS (AKA SBGuiltySpark),

 

Welcome to the IMDb Poll message on Sprinklr. Thank you also for your poll suggestion.

 

1. Shorter titles that are properly capitalized are preferred. Likewise, you are mixing best and favorite in your poll. It is better to focus on best or favorite. I recommend that you change the title of your list (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls083813565/) from:

Horror movies that are based on atmosphere and vibe instead of just jumpscares and gore

 

To:

Favorite Horror Movies Based on Atmosphere/Vibe

 

For future reference:

When in doubt about capitalization, use this online tool:
https://capitalizemytitle.com/
Capitalize My Title
Enter your title and select:
"Title Case" and "AP".

 

2. Between your original post in this thread and your list, you have a good introduction and question. I recommend that you change:

What is your favorite horror movie that doesn't just rely on gore or jumpscares, but mostly has a scary atmosphere/vibe?

 

To:

Many horror movies use jump scares or gore. However, there's also a category of horror movies that doesn't rely on these aspects and mostly use a scary atmosphere or vibe. Atmospheric horror movies seem to have (re)gained more popularity recently. What is your favorite horror movie that doesn't just rely on gore or jump scares, but mostly has a scary atmosphere or vibe?

 

3. For your poll suggestion to be considered, it should include a discussion link. Please edit your list to include this text after your introduction and question:

 

After voting, [link=https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/imdb-poll/poll-suggestion-best-horror-movies-based-on-atmospherevibe/5f85a3aa483393298f7e39b5]please discussion here.[/link]

 

After your save your list, you should see:

4. Be inclusive. We are generally avoiding running polls of the form Choose among my personal favorites of ... A poll entitled Great Organized Crime Films of the 1970s should include The Godfather (1972) even if you are not personally fond of it. As a poll author you are balancing objective completeness/entertainment value/succinctness.

 

Other poll authors and users, may offer suggestions regarding your poll. Although you are not required to take their recommendations, please consider these and respond respectfully.
