    I'm ashamed of all of them. Tsk tsk!!!! Terrible movies!! Particularly the grudge. Why did she keep going back to that house to begin with?? She could have walked away at any time.

    I don't get the big hype with the ring.
    INTP vs xSFP

    Not an unpredictable difference.
    I've seen SFPs get excited about movies I find boring to me.
    We have different priorities.
    The movies on my list haunt me and I am reminded of them regularly.
    I actually like psychological horror flicks more than just about any other picture type, they stick -- they seem honest, real, and get to the crux of human psychological growth/conflict... the space inside where people change or die.

    Getting back to topic, I think "horror flicks" is too broad a topic. It's pretty clear that different types appreciate and are unsettled by different things.

    What did you think of the remake of 13 Ghosts, for example?

    Session 9
    Se7en
    I find them creepy and psychologically fascinating.
    All the main characters are introverts too, I think.

    (sorry, just speculating!)

    Like I said, I like to be unsettled, and I like evocative pieces. All of the movies on my list definitely have a particular ambiance or mood to them.

    Impressive for a director whose prior work was a comedy... but I think that nuance here was a positive, it allowed him to focus on the human elements of the movie rather than getting caught up in the overt gore potential.

    INTP horror movies - Cast Away ( no books to read)

    It would be the ideal movie for ISTPs.

    Describes ISTP attitude.

    Wow no one to talk to.
    No one to talk to.
    and no one to talk to.
    My ideal dream vacation.

    I'm drawn towards psychological drama. I'm more interested in the internal process of fear than gore. These come to my mind

    Silence of the Lambs
    Blair Witch Project
    Carrie
    Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

    I started watching a mindless horror story in which the characters were basically plastic, annoying, barbie dolls that were gradually being killed off in various gory ways that went on for a long time. I don't enjoy being grossed out by plastic people, so am adverse to that sort of horror. There has to be character depth that is convincing and that is somehow enlightening.

    This is actually a common fantasy for INTPs. Then I mention the "no books" thing and they change their mind, but they don't react with horror to the idea.

    Meh.

    It actually would be pretty cool:
    - you're ALONe
    - you have no one to depend on but yourself, and no one to tell you you're "doing things wrong"
    - you have to be ingenuous and see potential in things and know rationally how to use them to survive
    - you have no schedule except the demands of the moment
    - you have a whole new world to explore
    - all that matters is functionality, you have no social conventions or "appearances" to meet

    This is actually very very good for INTPs.
    it makes perfect use of their Ne coupled with Ti, and they have total autonomy over their own choices.

    The only issue is that it gets boring once you know the island, and I'd want to move on.

    They don't react to anything except for when someone has something interesting to say or someone understands (intellectual enough) to understand them.

    Then they go like yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeee for 2 seconds.

    After reading through the lists here and learning the difference between thriller and horror I've realised I do like horror. Not gore though, psychological horror.

    The Shining was the best horror film ever, no matter what your type is, that's fact.
