The Best Haunted House Movies

A list of the best haunted house movies. These are films that feature a haunted house as one of its primary locations. We believe we've got them all, but if you think we missed one please feel free to add it to the list yourself. All genres have been included, but being haunted houses, the most predominant genre is of course horror. Haunted houses are at the heart of many of our favorite ghost stories and have translated into some of the best haunted house films.

A haunted house also creates a unique situation for storytellers where the location itself is practically one of the characters. Whether the house is haunted due to a murder, a corpse stashed in one of its walls, or something buried beneath its foundation, you'll find it on this list of the best haunted house films. What are the best haunted house movies? That's up to you to decide!
