The Top Ten

1
The Sixth Sense
This is the best psychological horror movie. The child of this movie acted amazingly. This movie has the great soul that make each scene as classic. I fell a feeling of hallucination at the end of this movie
Glad this one is at number 1. Truly is scary, provokes different thoughts, makes you feel every emotion. An instant classic

This is the number one most scary movie that I have ever seen in my life. Its really gets you the spooks and makes your hairs stand up and in my opinion that's what a ghost movie should do

2The Woman in Black
I was glad this movie was rated pg-13. PG-13 movies generally try harder to bring in the fright with nuance and mood rather than gore, sex, and ultra-violence like some of their rated R counterparts.

3Insidious
I am personally offended that this terrifying movie is number 12 on the list. This is the only horror film I got scared at and I know I am talking about considering I hysterically laughed all the whey through the grudge ha ha ha!
Not only is Insidious full of great camera tricks that scare you without relying on jump scares too heavily, but it is absolutely just a fun film to watch with a much deeper mythos than just the standard "haunted house" plot.
This movie should be first what is it doing here?

4The Unborn
Its an amazing movie

5Paranormal Activity
it was boring until the end where the girl gets possessed which is fricken scary
Beside everythin... This movie is real guyzz...
Its reality...!
this movie is shocking, scary and creepy

6The Grudge
I love this movie it's spooky and I love ghost movies the third one of this series wasn't as great but I love the first and second one. I remember seeing the first grudge in theaters and it did make me jump here an there.
Technically the grudge is a ghost movie. It is about a group of vengeful ghosts that haunt the house and anyone who enters the house gets killed. The plot was scary, and the ghost was also creepy.
I can't believe 6th sense is first because that movie is creepy how he can see the dead but no where near as scary as the grudge cause this film left me unable to sleep for ages.

8The Devil's Backbone
Looking like orginal ghost

9Poltergeist
This one is a total classic. It seems like most haunted house movies still to this day try to copy this movie.
Should be higher on the list!
It is not that scary but it is really good and you only want to waatch good movies right

10Ghost Ship

The Contenders

11The Orphanage
This movie, I totally enjoyed as I first watched it in another language and didn't even know what they were saying but the movie draw- ed me into wanting to watch more so I got the English subtitle one the second time watching it and I was amazed, its my fave ghost movie ever
Orphanage better than any movie in the list

1213 Ghosts
I had to leave the theater the first time I tried to watch this movie. That's never happened to me. Finally saw it all the way through, and loved it. The idea of capturing malignant spirits is a really disturbing one.

When I saw this movie I scared I am only 10 years old and I love it it is very interesting and awesome movie thanks to the directer who maid this move I appreciate again thanks and congratulations
A good cast, the story is clearly and surprisely. The movie was my favourite ghostmovie ever.

13ParaNorman

14The Others
One of the best movies of its kind I have ever seen. I was so happy when Nicole Kidman was nominated for a Best Actress Golden Globe for this movie. It was well-deserved.
Are you serious this ghost movie was amazing and is way better then the sixth sense wich is such an overrated ghost horror movie.

15The Haunting
Brilliant Psychological Horror. This classic horror movie is better then most modern day horror; using atmosphere wrather then cheap gore.

beasthound

Not putting this one as number one should be made criminal.

16Stir of Echoes

17The Amityville Horror
Best role ever played by Ryan... Very creepy movie

18Ghost Story

19Lady in White

20Session 9

This movie does not have cheap thrills but still scares you. Now the ending is not great I get the feeling they rushed it but overall it is a great movie and made very well. Watch it, it is amazing.


21The Conjuring
One of the few modern horror flicks where the scares are creatively executed. The Conjuring borrows elements from The Exorcist & Amittyville Horror, but manages to uphold its' slow pacing through suspense and silence, eventually snowballing to a big bang. The Conjuring is undoubtedly a modern classic in horror cinema, that builds upon the warm legacy of Ed & Lorraine Warren.
The Conjuring is a movie that have History Horoor Movoe
