Maybe smart is the wrong word. I like the aforementioned films, and as Scorch recommended, A Quiet Place, I've seen that and enjoyed it. I suppose I mean psychological thriller/horrors rather than slash/gore titles.

I'm well aware that there are plenty of smart slasher/jump scare/gore horrors, they're just not my cup of tea that's all.

It sounds like what you're looking for are horror films that you can enjoy as good films as much as good horror films. 

If that's the case, you might enjoy some of these, with a mix of modern and classic:

It Follows. A couple of moments of gore, but it doesn't really lean into it too much. There's plenty going on, and it plays with a cool idea.

The VVitch. Old-fashioned folk horror that some hated because it's slow-moving, but I loved it. It's as much about a family falling apart as anything else. 

The Exorcist. Nowhere near as shocking as it's made out to be, but unsettling throughout. One of the best films of the 70s.

Don't Look Now. As much a beautiful film about grief as it is a horror film. Every time I watch it, I notice something new. 

Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I'm really not kidding. It's relentless and exhausting, but it's not the gorefest people expect either - it's utterly disorienting, and it's a much smarter film than people expect. It's an ordeal, but if you enjoy the others, it's worth a shot. Surprisingly little happens on-camera.

I only see about 300 titles on Amazon Prime for Shudder and many of those are on Netflix and even YouTube. If that's their full selection then that's shite.

Shudder has some really cool exclusives. I recommend the podcast series Video Palace and the interview/filmmaking series The Core

The Creepshow series looks like it might be fun. Checking that out later.

I watched it weekly when it came out, some of the stories were hit and miss but overall it was a fun series
