And which Dawn of the Dead? Romero's one from the 70s or the more recent one? Both are pretty good, but I like Romero's a bit more.
I also recently watched John Carpenter's The Thing for the first time in years. That's another good horror movie that delves into human paranoia and fear, would recommend it (and it's nothing that would scare you).
Agreed. If you're a pansy boy and want to avoid the gore or being 'scared', Silence of the Lambs and The Thing are good movies that build the suspense and paranoia without being what you'd likely consider 'scary'. The Exorcist is another movie I'd recommend, while being 'scarier' than the other two, it's not in the same way recent movies are, and imo, it's held up over time. Also, you'll probably say "Your mother sucks c**** in Hell." at least once in your life after it.
