SILENCE OF THE LAMBS has an autopsy scene, but hardly what I would call gory. The scene where Lecter escapes is a bit bloody, but hardly what I would call gore.

HALLOWEEN has no blood at all. None.

TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE definitely has some disturbing scenes, but hardly any blood at all. In fact, the sound affects are actually more visceral than the images. Even the famed meat hook scene shows very little. It's all implied.
I’ve seen “Psycho” and consider both the shower scene and the stabbing of the investigator to be gory.

The first “Body Snatchers” isn’t gory, but there’s one scene in the second one where the Donald Sutherland character takes an axe to the “people” growing out of the pods, which I found gory.

I’ve purposely avoided the other three films on descriptions from people who have seen them. For starters, I’m not keen to see an autopsy scene, thanks. YMMV.

Really? That surprises me. Both scenes show very little. The most disturbing thing of the shower scene are the sound effects, which I admit are wince-inducing.

Yup. You're right. I had forgotten about that. It's been too long since I last saw the movie.

The most suspenseful movie I've ever seen was The Man Who Skied Down Everest.

Has anyone seen movie called "The Changling" George C Scott and Trish Van deVere?
Has Melvin Douglass in his final role
Ghost story...no gore

We saw it originally in theater in Houston--converted cinema where they took the balcony section and turned it into a small room of its own...
So had a strange layout...
The movie was very creepy--lot of scary parts that were very realistic...
One high point had something occur that was VERY scary---
The couple sitting two rows up from us actually had the guy come out of his seat on the aisle and start trying to run out....he tripped...
It was funny as hell and I sympathized somewhat but it was a distraction to the rest of us

That was a very strong reaction to a film...

Frailty (2001) and Cape Fear (the original 1962 one, not the remake with DeNiro), are two non-gory scary movies that totally flipped me out. I’ve never seen either one twice.

Dead Calm was a great suspense movie. The Hitcher, too, although there was some blood and gore.

Re "The Hand that Rocked the Cradle"---original version w/Annabelle Sciorra and Rebecca deMornay--
Two normally very good actresses I enjoy watching--
Went to see this on original release with another couple
We laughed ourselves silly==
We thought it was just too over the top

Did the same thing in "Darkman" w/a much younger Liam Neeson--
Just couldn't feel the suspense vibe...
We didn't laugh loud enough to disturb the audience but for us just didn't buy the premise...

The three others you listed--suspenseful but really that scary--except for Mrs. Danvers in "Rebecca"
Judith Anderson with that giant mole was enough to scare anyone any time...
