Hello everyone. I have been M.I.A for a while and I apologize. Since it is Halloween aka my favorite time of year I thought I would make a few, Halloween/Scary/Horror inspired list. The first one is my Five Favorite Haunting movies. Rather you see the ghost, rather the house is just plane spooky or its all the work of those pesky Poltergeist here are five of my favorite Haunting films. Counting down from five to one.
This Steven Spielberg produced film surrounds a family who deal with the poltergeist that have taken over their home. What starts as fun turns terrifying when their young daughter Carol Ann played by the late Heather O’Rourke is nowhere to be found. The film was a fun family style horror film that spawned less well received sequels.
Trivia: The film series is believed to be cursed due to the use of real skeletons in the picture. Apparently it was cheaper to use real ones instead of plastic models.
4. The Conjuring
The Conjuring follows paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren as they help a family terrorized by a presence in their new home.
Trivia: Based on a true story The Conjuring is based on one of the cases of real life Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
3.House on Haunted Hill
Vincent Price stars as eccentric millionaire Fredrick Loren. Along with his wife Annabelle he invites five people to stay over night at the house on Haunted Hill for a Haunted house party. If they stay through the night they will earn Ten thousand dollars. Over the course of their stay they are haunted by ghost and murderers.
Trivia: The film is public domain.
Two paranormal scientist’s invite two women to a haunted mansion. One of the women begins to lose her sanity.
Trivia:Based on Shirley Jackson’s novel The Haunting of Hill House. The character played by Claire Bloom was a lesbian but due to the sensors the studios would not allow her character to touch Eleanor played by Julie Harris.
1. The Innocents
A governess played by Deborah Kerr is convinced that the house is haunted. Kerr regards this as one of her finest performances and with good reason. The atmosphere of the film paired with the fine acting makes for a very sinister film.
Trivia: Based on The Turn of the Screw by Henry James.
