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.

The Criterion Collection is a video distribution company which specializes in licensing and selling "important classic and contemporary films" in "editions that offer the highest technical quality and award-winning, original supplements."
This is a list of all films (main feature, extra featurette, making of, box-set meta entry, etc if it has a separate entry on trakt) released under Criterion Collection catalog, Essential Art House, Eclipse, Merchant Ivory collections etc. as DVD/BluRay. So far LaserDisc releases have not been included.
Notes to self:
Reviewed/cross-checked entries till Criterion Collection #200.
Last entry: Criterion Collection Spine #845 / Eclipse Series #44.
This list will be frequently updated as movies move in-and-out of contention.
(Big update today. I added all of the movies that have come into contention over the summer and removed a few that have dropped out. I will continue to monitor the list monthly until award season ends.)
