Please help with some suggestions
 
Hey, so what I'm going to ask of you guys might be really hard, but I really need some help.

Okay so, I really love the thrill, anxiety, tension and emotion that "horror" or "thriller" movies make me feel but I really am not a fan of just "here's a bunch of characters, watch them get killed in various gory and horrific ways" or supernatural/satanic/demonic themes.

I love a scary movie that has a good plot with super scary scenes where gore/violence/shock factor is not the main drawing point. I just love the feeling when you're on the edge of your seat in tension or trembling because of a terrifying scene. I know gore and horror movies go hand in hand, and I don't mind a bit of gore (I just look away or try to stomach it, but my stomach is weak) but I don't like when that's the entire point of the movie, just to see people die. Honestly, I would be completely fine watching a horror movie where nobody dies at all, I don't care about that. I just want an interesting story with scary scenes.

Oh also, I'm not really about like Thriller hostage situations or bomb threats etc, I'm talking like scary with either a monster/alien, killer/stalker or crazy family and stuff. Movies that are actually "scary".

Also as mentioned above, I really dislike supernatural or cult/demonic etc themes because I've grown up as Christian and it makes me feel uncomfortable. Nothing against those movies personally, they're just not for me.

Here's a few movies I watched and enjoyed despite the gore (for the most part, anymore gore than this and its off putting to me):
- Alien movies
- Get Out
- IT (my friend said ITs an alien, not sure if its true or not)
- Creep
- Signs (Not horror AT ALL but can be a bit creepy at times)

Anyway this post is already longer than I wanted it to be, but I would really appreciate some suggestions. Thanks for much for reading and any help you guys can provide. :)

Sure, I'd be happy to help ya with that type of horror. Scary tends to be rather subjective, but I think I'm feeling ya enough to hit your criteria. Maybe you can be more specific on which supernatural things you don't want to see, as that covers a lot of ground. Like what about other dimensions, extra sensory perception, space aliens, werewolves, vampires, "ghosts"?

When A Stranger Calls (1979)
The Thing (1982)
The Fly (1987) & (1958)
Scanners (1981)
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Poltergeist (1982)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) & (1978)
Se7en (1995)
Halloween (1978)
Jaws (1975)
Vacancy (2007)
Psycho (1960)
The Birds (1963)
Hush (2016)
Red Dragon (2002)
Amelia, Trilogy of Terror the 3rd short (1975) its on youtube
The Forgotten (2004)
The Howling (1981)
The Night Stalker (1972)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

If you can't be scary be gory.

I personally find horror films generally to not be scary. I read for that.
