The Awakening

If you like your ghost stories to be a little more mysterious then this English tale of a ghost debunker searching for her dead husband is right up your alley. It's very British, so there's a lot of staring and pregnant pauses. If you're into that kind of thing you'll be in heaven with The Awakening

Hey look, it's Abigail Breslin playing a ghost! Neat. Haunter is a pretty interesting twist on the haunted house genre, and it explores a lot of the same territory as the first season of American Horror Story, but with much less camp. If that sounds like something you've been waiting your whole life for then you'll definitely like this movie, but you won't love it.

Visions is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The Semi-Spookiest Movies About Ghosts On Netflix Right Now

Visions is one of those horror movies that feels like it's for your mom and dad, but that doesn't mean it's not good. Isla Fisher adds some weight to this story of a woman who is being haunted by something, and it doesn't help that she has PTSD that turns into a paranoid wreck through most of the film. Even though this movie feels very What Lies Beneath, there's still a pretty good twist at the end. It's A-okay.

We Are Still Here

If you like you modern horror to directly pay homage to horror films of the '70s and '80s then look no further than We Are Still Here, a movie that combines ghosts, small town cults, and people catching on fire in the worst ways imaginable. It's pretty good.
