If you’ve seen Hideo Nakata’s Ringu (1998) and Ring 2 (1999), plus the American remakes The Ring (2002) and The Ring Two (2005), but still want more, you’ll be thrilled to know that Hollywood is gearing up for a reboot with Rings, scheduled to be released this November. According to The Wrap, Paramount has already tapped Italian actress Matilda Lutz to play the female lead. Can’t wait that long? Here are three more horror films from the ‘90s that you probably haven’t seen yet.

The premise: A group of people receive an invitation to participate in an insomnia study at Hill House, a secluded manor in western Massachusetts. Unbeknownst to the subjects, the true purpose of the study is to measure psychological response to fear. However, it isn’t long before everyone figures out that there are bigger things at work than just a controlled experiment.

Watch out for: That giant swinging pendulum
