Need of a horror movie! Sugestions please!

I'm having my b-day sleep over party and I need a scary movie to watch. I don't like gore and neither do my girls but I can handle a little blood!
P.S. I was thinking of Blair witch project. Has anyone seen it and if so how was it?

I would recommend Hellraiser but it does get a little gorey. It's a true horror movie though.

I've never seen the Blair Witch Project so I can't say anything about it.

All my favorites are heavy on the gore but...Since i don't know how old you are, & you don't like that, here's some tamer ones I can recommend. None of these have very much gore, if at all. Some are more "thrillers". ("Classic" ones are great old horror everyone should see).
.
More Recent: Willard, orphan, the others, silent hill (kinda fantasy-ish too), the ring, Turistas, white noise, a haunting in Connecticut, insidious, Let me in.
Classic: Rosemary's Baby, Stephen Kings "IT" (very long, but terrifying lol), Misery, Pet Cemetery, Silence of the Lambs, Carrie, Halloween (series, kinda explicit), Childs Play (series, kinda explicit), the shining, Dawn of the dead (classic isnt Gorey at all, remake is), Poltergeist, the people under the stairs, the omen.
.
Blair witch project is good the first time you watch it & believe it... But it's not good again. Lol a better movie like it is "the st. Francisville experiment", it's amazing but not easy to find.

I liked Blair Witch Project very much but I've only seen it one time so I cannot tell if it's also good when you see it twice. I also liked The Others. I thinks it's a thriller that's good to handle when you're not really into horror movies. it has a really nice plot in my opinion.

I've also seen the The grudge 1, 2 and 3. I watched them alone, in the dark, in my bed and I didn't sleep for 4 days. I've seen the American version of The Ring but It's nothing compared to the Grudge in my opinion. Maybe because the effects were not very new for me.

Furthermore I've seen Gremlins ( I cannot remember this very well because I was 8 years old, Seven, Nosferatu a symphony des graues 1922 (deaf-mute movie, more tragic than scary), When a stranger calls (mwa), I know what you did last summer (mwa), Paranormal Activity 3 (got scared 3 days later because it took me a while before I realized what I watched),The exorcist: the beginning (wma), Seeds of Chuckie (seriously, don't waste your time). Of this list, Paranormal Activity is the scariest. I've seen the beginning of The Messengers but I've turned it off because I wasn't in the mood for scary kids. I really don't like kids in horror movies.

My sister saw Mama a few weeks ago and she really liked it. Good story line, she told me.

I hope this helped. I'd like to know which one you choose for your party. And, happy birthday!

I love horror films and Stephen King so I have to say everything above.

Also maybe The Stand again it is long but good.
The Fog (original), Don't Look Now (1973), The Orphanage,
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), The Mist,

The Amityville Horror (original)

I watched Blair Witch at the cinema and thought it was really scary but when I watched it again on DVD...not so much

I'd recommend Rob Zombie's films. A bit of warning though, some of his work can be very offensive to certain people and religious groups.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone this is so great! Though it will be hard choosing only a couple of them I am thankful for all the wonderful comments!

The Others was an excellent ghost story without any goriness. The Ring is also amazing. I haven't seen the US remake though but the Japanese original is brilliant and I don't remember it being gory, just scary. I'm also a fan of the Final Destination films but they are a little grizzly in places.

DarkAshHurts,

You lucky person! I would love to be able to say I had that. Sorry to hear your family's store closed, though.

I recommend Silent Hill and Silent Hill: Revelation as two of my recent favorites. May be a tad heavy for a younger person, but I think it's worth checking out. I also agree that The Others is a good movie minus gore, and it will blow your mind. Or at least it did when I saw it in the theatre years ago. The People Under The Stairs was good; so was Candyman. I wouldn't bother with the sequels for that one though. I could go on forever, but I think a lot of the movies suggested are good.

Yeah it's really nice having lots of movies on hand, I'm glad.
We closed in 2008 bc since DVDs came out, making movies cheaper, people starting buying more. & Netflix, RedBox, etc. took all our business. I do miss it a lot still.

My girlfriend and I recently watched the movie SINISTER with Ethan Hawke. It came out in October of 2012, so its kinda new. My girl friend is a huge Horror film fan and critic, but Sinister was one of the absolute BEST horror movies we've seen in a long time. I'd check it out!

ok, blair witch project is good because it's not extremely scary but its a bit jumpy so yeah

I'd also recommend: The Exorcist, The Omen, A Nightmare on Elm Street (one scene where there is blood though), Jaws (has got blood but it's pretty fake)

I didn't feel like recommending any hard-core horror 'cause otherwise I would've gone on and on for ages
