“Your mother's in here, Karras. Would you like to leave a message? I'll see that she gets it.”
       ― Pazuzu, 'The Exorcist' (1973)

After combing through movie lists from IMDB to Reddit, I think I've created the most complete collection of horror movies that climb inside your skull and mess with your brains.

Some people claim that the benchmark of a true psychological horror is that the truly petrifying element is what isn't shown, not necessarily what is. But I've also included horror films that rely on the disintegration of the human psyche, and films where characters begin to lose faith in what is strictly real.

What’s a mindfuck? A movie that plays with your mind, confuses you, and leads you on. It’s not just a movie with a twist ending. Mindfucks are borderline-incoherent, dreamlike, and surreal.

“Now you're looking for the secret. But you won't find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled.”
       ― John Cutter, 'The Prestige' (2006)

Great films with poignant, memorable, Shyamalanesque, or downright traumatic endings.
