Haunted House Movies

Haunted house movies are one of my favorite sub genres of horror.  They have large scary looking houses, run-down estates with graveyards, hidden passages, creepy characters, ghosts and lots of spooky atmosphere.  Here are a few of my favorites:


13 Ghosts:

A family inherits what proves to be a haunted house, but a special pair of goggles allows them to see their ghostly tormentors. Starring: Charles Herbert, Jo Morrow and Martin Milner.  Directed by William Castle. (1960)



Burnt Offerings:

Haunted house chiller from Dan Curtis has Oliver Reed and Karen Black as summer caretakers moving into gothic house with their young son. The catch? The house rejuvenates a part of itself with each death that occurs on its premises.  Starring: Karen Black, Oliver Reed and Burgess Meredith (1976)



The Changeling:

A man staying at a secluded historical mansion in Seattle, finds his life being haunted by the presence of a spectre. Starring: George C. Scott, Trish Van Devere and Melvyn Douglas  (1980)



The Woman in Black:

A young lawyer travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.  Starring Daniel RadcliffeJanet McTeer and Ciarán Hinds (2012)

·         Diary of EllenRimbauer:

 A young girl sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own.  This movie does have a couple gory scenes (including the first few minutes) but the movie as a whole is a great haunted house film.  Starring:  Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Bailee Madison  (2010)
