Yeah, you want some claustrophobic psychological horror that feels like a feature length Twilight Zone episode? Boom. The Thing.

That sounds way more like Eraserhead

The only horror film I can say that I genuinely love and enjoy is the sixth sense.
You can't blame the whole genre based on the muck of it. That's like writing off comedy because Paulie Shore sucks. Here's a few that don't do any of what you describe except for maybe a few jump scares. The ones Batlodd mentioned are great too.

The Witch
Hour of the Wolf
Rosemary's Baby
The Shining
The Babadook
The Others
Coherence (kinda more than a thriller tbh)
Eyes Without a Face
Repulsion
Eraserhead
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
Creep
Bug

Never watched it, come to think of it I've seen a decent chunk of Kubrick films (Stranglelove!) but I'm truly lacking one too many flicks in his filmography. I'm starting this tonight and watching Barry Lyndon tomorrow.

I don't consider alien a horror film. Great movie though. Rest of these I didn't enjoy except for the thing. That one is pretty good.

I've always loved the suspense brewed by Predator so much. That is gripping.

I also like when they see it and just fire literally every single bullet into the woods for a good minute

I'm by no means any sort if action expert but it's definitely the most engrossing one I've seen.
