Horror movies to show a scaredy cat?

I love horror movies, but my girlfriend is terrified of them. But, she wants to watch one with me to give it a shot. I want to show her horror movies can be fun and exciting, not totally just scare the pants off you. I was thinking Halloween 4, Friday the 13th part 3, or the cabin in the woods. Any suggestions?

    Think the Sixth Sense (or similar, eg The Others, Nightmare before Christmas, Beetlejuice). They're not horror horror but have that little bit scary to them

    Go for more psychological and generally less bloody / slasher.

    The Frighteners

    Let the Right One In

    Pans Labyrinth

    The Exorcist

    Cabin in the woods would not really make sense if she has not seen a lot of horror movies.

    How about somthing a little silly like Cursed, or The frighteners.

    "The Others" was great and not too scary.

    There's nothing better for breaking someone in to horror movies IMO than to show them short horror films, which are freely available online. It's sort of like getting samples of ice cream at the shop to see which one you like, without the inconsideration of holding up a large line to try the lot. I've tried to rank them from least to most terrifying. Anyway, here are some that are all great:

    Alma

    The Black Hole

    Exit (with Julian Glover)

    Ten Steps

    The Jigsaw (about a puzzle, not the movie series)

    Attic Panic

    2 AM - The Smiling Man

    He Dies at the End

    Bedfellows

    Lights Out

    Special Day

    Play Time

    The Thing in the Apartment

    Alexia

    Downstairs

    There are so many great short films online that you could have a marathon that lasts a solid weekend. Try the links to others you'll find on YouTube, but note that some can be very scary and/or gory, while many others are not very good at all. If it is stamped with "award winning" or the like, then that is usually a good bet.

    The fact that you're referring to her as a 'scaredy cat', which is really patronising, unkind and rather childish, makes me think that you're not mature enough to have a girlfriend at all.

    Not everyone likes horror movies.

    If you're pressurising her in any way at all - even just by making fun of her - please don't.

    Watch them on your own or with like-minded friends, but leave her out of it.

    If she really wants to see one - not just to please you - pick one which is really unrealistic and not very scary at all.
