    I'd like to suggest the original version of The Haunting, but this may not be to your tastes. Unfortunately, no DVD available at this moment. I happen to catch it on Turner Classic Movies and I'm sure they will be running again as Halloween approaches.

    JohnS, you wanna see a real chiller? Seek out George C. Scott's The Changling! Very spooky stuff!

    13 Ghosts is fun, but it feels more "cheapie" than "creepy". It does not take itself too seriously and does not go for the "atmosphere" of the other films mentioned in this thread. Pretty much par for the course for a typical William Castle flick.
