Horror for people who hate horror

I guess the title says it all. I don't like horror as a genre (I'm a jumpy wimp who gets too stressed) but as it's Halloween I'm tempted to try something. So what should I be watching? If it's on Netflix (any region) or Amazon Prime then that would be ideal.

I second cookie's recommendation of The Orphanage. I've not seen many horror films, but this is the best one I've seen. It's terrifying and sad in a good way, but probably quite tame for horror aficionados. I saw it at the cinema and it blew me away. That said, I don't think I could watch it again so maybe it's too strong for you. It's certainly not fun!

Yeah, great film The Orphanage. Highly recommended - although if you're a person who can't get on with foreign language subtitled stuff, there is that to consider (it's a Spanish language film).

Also, for some reason, The Mist popped into my head when I read this thread. It's as much a sci-fi film as it is a horror but a good bit of entertainment nonetheless for someone who doesn't necessarily cope well with more traditional horror stuff.

If you're up for a Spanish film you could watch The Devil's Backbone, which is more of a ghost story than horror.

Or Day of the Beast, about a priest trying to kill the antichrist when he's born. Still the best film I've watched when slightly drunk and not had chance to see again.
