 10 Horrifying Haunted House Movies To Watch While Youíre Home Alone

Who doesnít love to turn off the lights, snuggle up in a blanket, and watch an awesomely creepy movie about a haunted house? (If youíre not one of those people, this article isnít for you. You can stop reading now.) Even better than just enjoying a movie about a home full of ghosts and ghouls is enjoying one when the very house youíre in is empty aside from yourself. If youíre ready to get creeped out and spend the rest of your evening jumping at every sound that echoes through your halls, dive in to one (or more!) of these fantastic films Iíve selected just for you.
The Others

Nicole Kidman shines (or screams?) throughout this delightfully eerie Victorian-era spookfest. Ignore the fact that you want to punch the little boy right in his pouty mouth the whole time and just relish in the fact that there are still some horror movies out there that can surprise you.
Poltergeist

Of course Iím talking about the original, you monster. This one is just such a solid classic and really quite scary even with the PG rating. Add to that the alleged curse that hung over the filmís series (because apparently the skeletons in the pool are REAL?!) and youíve got a true haunter on your hands. Bonus fun fact: it took me until last year to watch the skin-pulling part and I still watched it through my fingers.

Okay, so technically the Overlook isnít a house, itís a hotel. But thatís even more bang for your buck! Roam the halls with Danny and lose your mind with Jack as the specters slowly reveal exactly how powerful they truly are. After allÖ youíve always been the caretaker.
1408

Bear with me here, Iím going to toss in another hotel movie because JFC this movie is SCARY. I mean, downright terrifying. Itís one of my favorite Stephen King short stories and one of the more effective film versions of his work; I think this is mainly because it deals with the very psychology of fear. I mean, Room 1408 literally knows EXACTLY what will scare its occupant, and rather than stick to one subject it simply throws ALL of them their way. This one spooked me good.
The Amityville Horror

It would be remiss of me not to include this absolute classic. This film deals with the very basic concept of buying your dream house only to find out itís actually a nightmare. I love the way that the house actually affects members of the family in a deep way rather than just having spirits roaming the halls at night. If you havenít seen this yet ó what are you waiting for?! Even the remake has its charm (but Iíd definitely stick with the original.)
Insidious

One might argue that Insidious is more about the haunting of an individual than a house but that doesnít make the haunting any less scary. Besides, haunted people live in the house ó doesnít that make the house itself haunted? Iím getting into semantics here. Anyway, James Wan does some amazing things with visual terror in this film; itís so worth a watch.
Thirteen Ghosts

This movie always seemed to be on television when I was in high school and every time I found it I would inevitably watch the whole thing. The house itself is just so bizarre but my favorite part was the range of ghosts and their unique back stories. If I recall, there was even a website where you could go to read all about how they diedÖ those stories were brutal. Also, Tony Shalhoub is there!
The House On Haunted Hill

Iím not particularly fond of this one but itís still pretty fun. Also, the words Ďhouseí and Ďhauntedí are in the title, so it would feel weird to leave it out.
Sinister

This one takes on a very interesting new concept. I love the ďhome moviesĒ that Ethan Hawke finds and even the certain vagueness left behind in the wake of whatís causing the mayhem inside his new home. I donít want to give anything away so just give it a shot, trust me.
The Conjuring

Another James Wan masterpiece, this introduces us to the most famous ghost-hunting couple in the USA: the Warrens. I love the nostalgic atmosphere, the peek into ghost hunting of the past, and of course, the disturbing imagery that Wan seems just to excel at. This is a staple of haunted house horror and one of the scariest films to come out in years. So if you choose to watch this one alone, wellÖ donít say I didnít warn you. TC mark
