It was the shining I know that for sure
It might be Grave Encounters. It's about a group of people working for a TV show and they decide to visit an abandoned mental hospital at night that is supposedly haunted and the entities or monsters kill them off one by one. YouTube has a trailer for it here.
Possibly horror film The Children, but it's from 2008, hardly long ago. It's about a family (teen girl Casey, her mom Elaine, her stepfather and her two young siblings) spending the New Year with Elaine's sister, her husband and their two young children (a boy ans a girl) in a secluded house in the snowy woods. The small children, after being infected with ...
I wonder, then, if it's the British drama The Cement Garden with Charlotte Gainsbourg. It's about four orphaned siblings living in a run-down house in a crumbling block, and the oldest brother and sister start to be attracted to each other. They also entomb their dead mother in a cement block in their basement. It's from 1993, though.
Are you sure that it was European? "Incest" makes me think of Flowers in the Attic, an American film from 1987. The children's father had died, but their mother was still alive. She hid them away "in a room just below the attic" of "a huge, decrepit old mansion", so it may have seemed like they were orphans since they were unsupervised.
I was thinking Amityville Horror, I don't remember too much about the story but it was in the late '70 and a Oscar winning classic horror flick. You can see synopsis here, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078767/. This involved a haunted house which was the seen of a mass murder. I remember the house coming alive, and attacking the family..etc. No zombies ...
Sounds like the plot of the low-budget horror film Scar from 2005: Two young guys called Tom and Zack hike in the woods and come across a cabin and a cute blonde. She flirts with Zack, he goes in and they make out, when suddenly her mother appears and attacks him with an axe. A year later, Tom and Zack's ex-girlfriend go back to the cabin to find out what ...
This is the fate of Sophie in the horror film Wrong Turn 3 from 2009. The villain Three Fingers (who has a kind of elfish face) kills her in the exact grisly way you've described. There are some graphic pictures of it on this page, and you can see a bit of it in this trailer around 0:13 (both links NSFW).
Could it be The Fog? With Jamie Lee? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080749/?ref_=nv_sr_2
I believe the movie you're looking for is The Changeling, a 1980 movie with George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere. After his wife and child die in a tragic road accident, Scott's character John Russell moves into a Victorian-era mansion (which is large and elaborate and castle-like - matching one of the points of your description.) The mansion is also ...
Tim Burton's Ed Wood from 1994 was a critically acclaimed, black-and-white film about the life of director Ed Wood Jr. who made Plan 9 From Outer Space - a movie often dubbed "worst film ever made". It stars Johnny Depp as Ed Wood and Martin Landau (who won an Oscar for the role) as an aging drug-addicted Bela Lugosi. Ed supported Bela and has been meaning ...
Possibly Fragile from 2005 about an evil spirit in a hospital thought to be the ghost of a handicapped girl, but it turns out to be the ghost of an older nurse. The hospital also starts falling apart in the end. It stars Calista Flockhart and Richard Roxburgh, that does usually play villains. Here's the trailer. ...
Possibly Video Violence from 1987: A husband and wife open a video store in a new town, and come to find out that the locals only rent horror films and the "occasional triple X'er", and make their own snuff videos. It also had a sequel. You can see the trailer here [WARNING: GORY & EXTREMELY CHEAP].
I don't know how you would call a horror movie with a supernatural entity as main antagonist other than Supernatural Horror. I guess that is the most exact you can get for such a broad classification. There might probably be sub-genres of that concentrating on specific kinds of supernatural stuff, like ghosts, possessions, ..., but I'm not sure there are ...
