    I need to find a movie (quickly - for tonight) that is Halloween / spooky / scary but can not be gory, etc., (i.e. Saw series). I'm not a huge scary movie person so I really have no ideas. Can someone please offer some suggestions? Thanks.

    For starters:
    The Ring, The Grudge, The Devil's Rejects

    I've always liked Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp.

    It has a few scenes with blood and heads, but nothing compared to modern films.

    Plus it has a slightly new take on the original story, so it can be entertaining for an hour and a half.

    If you're looking for actual scary - nothing beats The Shining.

    If you're looking for campy but still Halloween-themed - Beetle Juice is quite fun. Or almost any Tim Burton film.

    Brilliant, psychological thriller that really messes with your head.
