Supernatural horror films

Post by AMRA » Sat Apr 26, 2014 8:01 pm

I'm very much into supernatural/psychological/haunted house type horror; these are some all-time favourites of mine;

The Uninvited (1944)
The Innocents (1961)
The Haunting (1963)
The Legend of Hell House (1973)
The Changeling (1980)
The Fog (1980)
The Woman in Black (1989 and 2012)
The Others (2001)
Kairo (2001)
Dark Water (2002)
The Eye (2002)
The Eye 2 (2004)
Shutter (2004)
1408 (2007)
Livide (2011)
Lovely Molly (2012)
The Conjuring (2013)



Any other fans of these - or any recommendations in a similar vein?

Hi Mary. The Haunting is often cited as the greatest haunted house movie ever made. I won't argue with that - but I'd say The Changeling is certainly the creepiest! :)

I agree with you. The Haunting is really good but The Changeling is the creepiest, it scared more. I couldnt sleep for days after watch that movie But both are really good and will be always between my favorites.

The part that gets me every time - even though I know it's coming - is when he's replaying the recording of the séance and he hears little Joseph's voice for the first time! Goosebumps on my arms without fail!

That is one of the best parts and always gets me too. I once had a nightmare with that scene...

Ah, the Changeling, my most favorite movie ever! Love the house in that movie.

I didnt like the ending for The Woman in Black. I would have wrote it to end the story with a happy ending.

Hard to believe it was just a façade constructed for the movie!

Have you read Susan Hill's original novel The Woman in Black (1983)? The ending in that is even more downbeat! :(
