    The Innocents is my personal fave.

    Runner-up would be Hold That Ghost by Abbott and Costello.

    I think Amityville is probably the big one when it comes to haunted houses. There have been many sequels, some good and some not but when I want to get freaked out by a haunted house story, that's the movie I wanna watch.

    There's a lot of good ones out there but I'll go with The Amityville Horror (1979). The ghost in that house was extremely violent and demonic. The Changeling, The Entity, The Haunting and Ju-on are all great Haunted House films as well.

    Does Fulci's The Beyond count? That was mostly in a house.

    Have to say Poltergeist is my favorite of course.
    Also like The Grudge (original and extra crispy)

    I would have to say Poltergeist... a childhood favorite.

    Though it's not really a haunted "house" I really enjoyed the latest Stephen King adaptation 1408.

    Poltergeist, i remember watching it at a friends house for the first time when i was 7 or 8, really flipped me out at the time. Now every time I see the film, it doesn't seem scary, but I remember that feeling of just being horrified as a small child.

    My favorite would be The Shining. Expansive and isolated, the Overlook Hotel is a great haunted house.

    The original House on Haunted Hill wins my pick.
    It's still creepy and spooky to this day and you can't go wrong with the amazing Vincent Price!

    This is a hard one but I'm gonna go with The Haunting, the standard-bearer for all Haunted House movies.

    Session 9. That movie goddamn rules and it has the single greatest David Caruso moment.

    Ever since I was a kid the Legend of Hell House freaked me out beyond words.

    Wow, that's a hard one.
    I have to say that I enjoyed reading the previous posts, and I agree that the films mentioned are really great.

    I'm not sure if you can count it as a haunted house movie, but the cabin in "Evil Dead 2" looked pretty haunted at the scene with the laughing moose and lampshade.

    In addition, although the house wasn't the point of the film, you can't say that the couple in "Beetle Juice" weren't haunting their house - and I LOVE this film.

    But if I need to pick a real "serious" haunted house film, I think that I'll pick (and I'm sure that most of you will hate for saying that) the American version of "The Grudge". I think that I like it mostly because I have convinced my girlfriend to watch this film with me at the cinemas, and she closed her eyes most of the film :)
     
  19. The Changeling, for all the reasons listed above. A stellar movie.
