5 Scary Movies Featuring Haunted Houses

Halloween won't be complete without these must-see flicks


Do you always look forward to TV specials featuring haunted places and homes where spirits and visitors from the other side make an apparition? Truth be told, these TV shows are some of the things to get excited about as we near the end of October.

As a fan of horror movies, I also enjoy movie marathons that depict ghostly encounters and haunted houses. If you're looking for a scare or thinking of something that you can do with the family this Halloween, here are five movies that you will surely enjoy:

The Amityville Horror (1979)
