Top 10 Songs that Make You Feel Like You're in a Haunted House


The Top Ten

1 More Than Pain - King Diamond
2 The Oath - Mercyful Fate
3 The Reaper - Grave Digger
4 Jesus, Mary & the Holy Ghost - Dio
5 Danse Macabre - Celtic Frost

This would be really appropriate to play in a haunted house.

6 Spirit Horse of the Cherokee - Manowar
7 The Family Ghost - King Diamond
8 Altair 4 - Blind Guardian

Especially the first minute of the song. Lyrics are also suitable: "I can feel their voices", "Please save the boy, he's caught in a world far behind from home", "Monster Anne is crying out", "Their whispering words". - Metal_Treasure

9 Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage
10 Phone Call - King Diamond

This is the most fitting track on this list but it's not exactly a song - it's a short outro track to an album.
Just play the song sample. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Realms of the Dead - Aalborg Soundtracks

This is just awesome!

12 Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath

Mainly the end of the song - christangrant

13 I Am the Spider/Epilogue - Alice Cooper
14 Grisly Reminder - Midnight Syndicate

This eerie tune definitely says Haunted House.

15 X Files Theme - Mark Snow

This is spooky. I used to be scared of this as a child, but I love it now.

16 Scaretale - Nightwish
17 Lavender Town - Pokémon
18 Say10 - Marilyn Manson

They played this when a friend and I went to Rotten Manor.

19 Blood Red Sandman - Lordi
20 Thriller - Michael Jackson

Especially at the end. - Userguy44

21 Death is Just a Feeling - Avantasia

Just play the sample - Metal_Treasure

22 In the House - In a Heartbeat - John Murphy (28 Days Later)

This is a good song if you're watching something about serial killers too.

23 The Living Hills - Aalborg Soundtracks
24 Welcome to My Nightmare - Alice Cooper

I really like the live version from The Nightmare Returns.

25 Raining Blood - Slayer

Only the sounds in the intro. - Metal_Treasure

26 Blue - The Birthday Massacre
27 Echo Side - Insane Clown Posse
28 Suspiria - Goblin
29 Twisted Nerve - Bernard Herrmann
30 Haunted House - CH!PZ
31 All Hallow's Eve - Master of Death
32 Das Omen, Pt. 1 - Mysterious Art
33 Schlaflied - Die Ärzte
34 Bedtime Story - Madonna

I know this song is supposed to be dreamy, but to me it always had something spooky to it. Maybe it's due to the video. - Martin_Canine

35 Adel - Bushido & Shindy

While the song itself is a brag rap song...
...that beat is disturbing as hell. Especially because the song starts with an unfitting spoken sample translating to "examples: paranormal voices on tape recordings".
If you don't understand German... have fun listening to it. - Martin_Canine

36 Come to Daddy - Aphex Twin
37 Lovely Creature - Nick Cave
38 Walk Into the Darkness - Insane Clown Posse

This album was a moment where Insane Clown Posse lost their humor and became... f'd up. I love it. - Martin_Canine

39 Everyday I Die - Insane Clown Posse
40 The Witch - Insane Clown Posse
41 Cryptorchid - Marilyn Manson
42 Ancestors - Björk
