A list of the best haunted house movies. These are films that feature a haunted house as one of its primary locations.

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!

<![CDATA[The Top Tearjerker Movies That Make Men Cry]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/top-tearjerker-movies-that-make-men-cry
Some classic, well-loved films are classified tearjerkers, but would all sad, depressing movies make the manliest men cry? No. But these depressing movies can do the trick. What movies make men cry? This list contains some of the best movies of all time, including depressing movies with stories of lost loves, broken hearts, dying fathers, dying friends, dying dogs... a whole lot of dying. Other emotional films on this list might make men shed tears of joy with heartfelt scenes of reunion, resolution, redemption.

Great movies have the ability to transport audiences out of the theaters (or their living rooms) to different places and eras unlike the ones we know. The best movies make us forget our daily troubles and let us escape to whole new worlds where new unimaginable dreams can come true.

This interactive Ultimate List includes epics like Saving Private Ryan, comedies like My Girl, and even several animated tearjerkers like Up and Wall-E. Other classics like Old Yeller and the uplifting sports story Rudy round out the list. Admit it – some of these made you a little misty, even if you blamed it on someone cutting onions nearby. Vote on those movies with the saddest, most heart-wrenching and tear-worthy scenes that can make even the most manly, grizzled warrior of a man cry his heart out.

<![CDATA[The Best Movie Sequels]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-movie-sequels/ranker-film
What are the best movie sequels ever made? This list includes several of the greatest movies of all time, and they all have one thing in common: They were film number two in a series. Which sequel do you believe deserves the top spot? Vote for your favorites, vote down any sequels you didn't like and feel free to add any films that might be missing - though remember, this is a list of second films, so no "Part III's" please. You can also re-rank this movie list in any order you choose.

It's really, really hard to argue that 'The Godfather Part II' shouldn't be at the top, or at the very least, near the top of this list. It's one of only a handful of sequels to receive an Academy Award Best Picture nomination (it win, in 1974, by the way). 'The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers' also received a Best Picture nomination, though it did not win (the third installment in the series, did). This is proof that just because a film is a sequel, it can also be among the very best Oscar-winning movies.

Need more proof? 'The Silence of the Lambs, technically the sequel to 'Manhunter,' won the so-called "big five" at the Academy Awards: Best Picture, Actor (Anthony Hopkins), Director (Jonathan Demme), Actress (Jodie Foster) and Best Writing/Adapted Screenplay (Ted Tally).

Some of the best movie sequels, not surprisingly, are also among the best superhero movies ever made. Among them: 'The Dark Knight,' 'Spider-Man 2' and 'X2.' Other notable movies worth a mention (and a spot on this list) include 'Superman II,' 'Iron Man 2' and 'Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.' Disagree? Vote them down. To each, his (or her) own!

<![CDATA[The Best Teen Movies of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-teen-movies-of-all-time/all-genre-movies-lists
A list of the best teen movies and films about teenagers, adolescence, and high school. What are the best teen movies of all time? Teenagers and young people have long been an ideal target market for film producers. They have more free time than adults, but can get themselves around and choose their own entertainment more easily than children. As well, they have disposable income, and typically spend more of their money on entertainment than their adult counterparts. What's the best teen movie ever? As this has steadily been true for several decades, it has led to a glut of films designed with teenagers in mind during that time.

Though there is no set definition on what makes a film a "teen movie," other than featuring teenagers (or at the very least, teenaged character) in significant roles, the genre has developed some defining features and common motifs over the years. Often, teen movies will explore high school as an environment, and specifically the high school community and the social cliques that form therein is a constant source of interest and observation. Much of the time, this is done with a snarky or cynical worldview, attempting to reflect the way that jaded teens often see the world of adults. Overwhelmingly popular recent entries in the high school movie sub-genre include Easy A and Mean Girls, while cult films such as Donnie Darko and Pump Up the Volume explore the same issues with an even darker or more subversive outlook.

Teens are also frequently cast as the leads in horror films, particularly the sub-genre known as "slasher films." In these films, attractive young people are typically placed in precarious situations with serial murderers, and audiences can then delight in seeing them ripped apart.

The teen films on this list span all of these sub-genres and more, including genre mash-ups combining several different storytelling modes into one film (such as the horror-comedy Scream franchise.) It's an Open list, so after you're done voting, if you see any great teen films that aren't on here, add them at the bottom of the page.
