Ghost Movie/Fiction List

animated-horror-ghost-39This is a list of ghost movies, telemovies and TV series: filmed stories that feature ghosts, haunted houses, spirit possession, psychic communication with the dead and anything else I deem relevant. It is an international list and includes alternative titles (though this is not exhaustive), country of origin, date and director. Obtaining an accurate date is problematic in some cases, but I have provided the most common production date listed in film encyclopedias, though if there is contention about this I have used either the copyright date as given on the film itself or the release date according to sources such as the Internet Movie Database. The list is intended to be as complete as I can make it, though it is in a state of perpetual flux and is, needless to say, an ongoing project.

For a selective list of Ghost Fiction, see the Peripheral Visions website.

    I see you’ve got here a very well documented list of movies so I really need to ask you something.

    I saw a movie about 13 years ago, it was black and white about 2 friends coming home to one of them – an old but but beautiful caste. In the first night that they spent there, they change rooms and one of them dies and becomes a ghost. A ghost that can be heard only by her friend. In this movie also aperas a seal, that lives in the basement of the caste and that creates many commic scenes.

    I was really hoping that you can help me with the name of the movie… I really can’t remember it, I just know that was a very juicy comedy andI would really appreciate your help.


  3. Backbrain says:

    Hmm, I’ll have to think about that, Mirela. Do you know the film’s country of origin?

  5. Sara says:

    Similar problem. Saw a movie on TV maybe 15 years ago. Children in a barn. The ghost is of a little girl. The barn either burned down or she was murdered. Something else I remember about a doll and a well in the barn or a cellar. buggin me for years, know its not much to go on~!

  6. mr.47 says:

    this movie is about a man who went and stayed at a hotel in a room that whoever went in got killed. he went and stayed there and was haunted by other ghost.

    help me with the name of this film. the name is something to do with numbers.

  7. Backbrain says:

    Sara, I haven’t been able to come up with anything for your film. Sorry. I’ll keep it in mind though, as I research.

    Mr.47, however, your question is easy. That’s “1408” (US-2007; dir. Mikael Håfström) — only recent. It’s based on a story by Stephen King and is currently available everywhere.

  8. justin says:

    sara the movie you are speaking of is ‘child of glass’ i believe

  9. Sara says:

    justin… u are a genius. i thought i hallucinated it as a child!! they say that our imaginations are so strong that its possible. i always assumed i dreamed it or something. well done~!

  10. joe says:

    sorry to jump on the bandwagon, but there are two movies that I’ve been trying to remember for awhile now

    the first I believe is an 80s flick, a father murdered his wife while his son, who is physically an adult but had the mind of a child I think, watched and attacked him with a toy airplane before he killed him as well; later a couple move into the house and the ghost of the man child helps them solve his murder since his father still lives in the town and is somehow a doctor, there was also a scene about a toy rocking horse that was buried with him since it was the last gift he got

    the other movie was about a mother living with her two children a boy and a girl on a farm, the boy dies in his sleep after accidentally choking himself with a wooden duck and haunts his mother and sister, kinda creepy

    I’ve been trying to remember these movies but it’s been bugging the hell out of me, thanks if you know

    this list is excellent well done backbrain, i really like ghost movies but theres no way i could find every single one, but with you providing an ongoing list like this and all of us followers listing films that we see that arnt mentioned then we can certainly find nearly every one good work guys i hope you keep updating the list, ill let you know if i encounter any films!

  13. THANK YOU!

    In doing research for an upcoming novel I was trying to compile a list like this myself. Praise you for saving the rest of my hair. I started to pull them out strand by strand my 2oth imdb search.

    What a comprehensive and inclusive list. As the titles went on and on my smile grew wider and wider. Bless you for doing such a tiresome job. Oh the hours you must have spent . . . YIKES!

    A Million Thanks to you for this list and for this site in general (^_^)

  14. Kimberly Rheubottom says:

    Excellent list you have! I’m looking for a movie that starts out with a boy playing a prank on his teachers at a boarding school. He gets kicked out and sent to live with his grandfather. In this town he makes a few friends and stumbles upon a ghost having something to do with his family. It was a good movie and I don’t think that old. Thank-you so much for any info you can find.

    Well Mr.Brain ,
    What is the scariest movie ever you have watched?
    Can you please suggest me a list so that i can download and watch them.
    Thanks. 🙂

  17. Josh Finch says:


    You listed a bunch of movies that i saw, but is there anyway you can make a list of movies that involve any type of paranormal activity/ghosts that are based in a Castle, Mansion, Hotel, or any other big building. I have been looking around for a while, oh and please make sure they have it in color as i cant get any movies that are not. and if u want a torrent of any of them i will try and get some and check the video quality of them.

    Thanks Josh,

  18. Robert Hood says:

    Hi, Shan. Sorry for this slow reply. I missed seeing your query. Scariness in ghost films is a very subjective thing so naturally whatever films I mention here are ones that creeped me out but may not affect others so much. I also find it interesting that the fear generated by effective ghost films is totally different from the feeling generated by most of the “horror films” of today, which are based on fear for the physical safety of the characters. So I’m not going to list scary horror films like “The Exorcist” and “Halloween” (the original) here. For me, the most effectively scary ghost movies are the subtle, suggestive ones, where a single moment of realisation can send chills up your spine and where the slow-build effect is at work. I would say the ghost films that have scared me the most in this way are generally very quiet and quietly dark works. Without a doubt my number one of this kind is the original Japanese version of “Pulse”: “Kaïro” (Japan-2001, dir. Kiyoshi Kurosawa), which creeped me out like nothing had for years. When I saw the original “Ring” movie in a small “art” cinema back before anyone had heard of it, that had a similar effect: “Ring” (Japan-1998, dir. Hideo Nakata). Other Asian ghost films can be added to the list for me: “Dark Water” [aka Honogurai mizu no soko kara] (Japan-2002, dir. Hideo Nakata); “Ju-On:The Grudge” (Japan-2003, dir. Takashi Shimizu) and some of its sequels; “The Eye” [aka Jian gui] (HK-2002, dir. Oxide Pang Chun and Danny Pang); “Whispering Corridors” [aka Yeogo goedam] (Sth Korea-1998, dir. Ki-Hyung Park). My list of top effective ghost films would include: the great “The Haunting” (UK-1963, dir. Robert Wise); “The Uninvited” (US-1944, dir. Lewis Allen); “The Woman in Black” (UK-1989, TV, dir. Herbert Wise); “The Innocents” (UK-1961, dir. Jack Clayton); “The Stone Tape” (UK-1972, TV, dir. Peter Sasdy); “What Lies Beneath” (US/France/Canada-2000, dir. Robert Zemeckis); “The Fog” (US-1980, dir. John Carpenter). There would be more, but I’ll stop there. I stress that these are ones I found to be effectively and subtly unsettling. There are other great ghost films that are simply great films, such as “The Shining” (UK-1980, dir. Stanley Kubrick) and “The Devil’s Backbone” [aka Espinazo del diablo, El] (Mex/Spain-2001, dir. Guillermo del Toro).

  19. Robert Hood says:

    Joss, thanks for your interest. Making a list of ghost lists set in large buildings such as castles would be interesting but it would include a lot of the films in the general list. In effect you’re asking for classic “haunted house” films, which form a sort of sub-genre of the ghost film. If I did make such a list, it would start (quality-wise) with “The Haunting” (UK-1963, dir. Robert Wise)…. in that one, the house itself is doing the haunting.

  21. Andrew Richardson says:

    Hi, what a fantastic website! I am trying to locate a ghost film I saw in my childhood (early 1980s) though the film may date from the 1970s. I think it was British, As I recall it had a really creepy scene of a girl standing in a trance in front of a tree in a wood, and from the tree a ghost emerges, walking towards her. I can’t really remember much more, other than the story might have been to do with the plague several hundred years before. Any help greatly appreciated!

  22. Robert Hood says:

    Thanks, Andrew. I can’t clearly place the film, but there is one of the BBC’s Ghost Stories for Christmas that features a haunted tree — The Ash Tree (UK-1975, TV episode of “Ghost Story for Christmas”, dir. Lawrence Gordon Clark) — though it is about past witch trials rather than the plague. Can’t remember if the scene you mention is in it, though I’m due to watch the episode soon on a new DVD set of the M.R. James adaptations. Another possibility is the Bette Davis haunted wood film The Watcher in the Woods (UK/US-1982, dir. John Hough)…

  23. Andrew Richardson says:

    Thanks for getting back to me Robert… and for your leads. I’ve just finished watching the new box set of Christmas Ghost Stories – very good! Alas, the film I remember was not one of them. However, the Watcher in the Woods sounds promising, so I’ll follow up with this. Thanks again!

    Hi Robert,

    Do you know where can i get a copy of the movie “The Ghost Of Sierra De Cobre” (1964) (TV)?
    UCLA Archive has this TV pilot, but they told me that they cannot make me a copy of it, but they can only arrange a screening for me in Los Angeles…
    * I live in Romania..
    ** I would pay even 200$ for a copy of it on DVD!!

    Best Regards,

    It’s Juan again I have another movie I’m trying to figure out its about a group of friend go driving and crash into a lake I think and they wake up and get out of the water not realizing that they are ghosts and later one of the guys swims to the car under water and releases one of his friends bodies and a fisherman finds there body and there souls are released and so they disappear

    Hi Hood… I need the list for the Ghost Anthology Movies… Can u please help..?

  30. Kourtney says:

    Hi, i can’t seem remember the name of this spanish movie and I’d really like my sister to watch. It’s about these high school kids who died in a fire and their ghosts were stuck in school for over 20 years because they hadn’t graduated but one of the teachers in the school could see ghosts and so he helped them graduate so their souls could finally rest in peace.

    If anyone has watched this movie and remembers the name, I’d really appreciate your help.

  31. Robert Hood says:

    Kourtney, that sounds like GHOST GRADUATION [aka Promoción Fantasma] (Spain-2012; dir. Javier Ruiz Caldera). A very recent film. I haven’t seen it, but your enthusiasm suggests it’s worth watching, yes?

  32. Robert Hood says:

    Ram, I’m not sure what you’re asking for. If you need a list of ghost films, surely the one on this page is comprehensive enough?

  33. Robert Hood says:

    Juan, your question re the car crash ghost movie brings to mind the classic indie film Carnival of Souls (US-1962, dir. Herk Harvey) — but it’s a theme that has been used quite often. Another “version” is Soul Survivors (US-2001; dir. Steve Carpenter), which may be the one you’re after.

  34. Andrew says:

    I remember seeing in the early 80’s what I believe was a made for tv movie about a new girl that moves to this small town (I think she might be a cheerleader) and this guy falls in love with her. It turns out in the end she was a ghost and wen to that high school years earlier but had died. Does that ring a bell? Thanks!

  36. Robert Hood says:

    Andrew, it sounds a lot like Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II [aka The Haunting of Hamilton High] (Can-1987, dir. Bruce Pittman). Though this is late ’80s and wasn’t a TV movie. Check it out (if you can find it). It’s pretty good, though not to be taken seriously — even if it isn’t the one you’re after.

  39. malinda says:

    I was hoping you could help me. I’ve been looking for the name of this movie since I was a kid. I last saw it in the 70’s. It’s a Haunting ripoff. It’s about a group of paranormal researchers who go to a haunted mansion where they hear these loud terrifying banging noises. It turns out the noise are being made by the ghost of an old bedridden woman who was banging on the wall with her cane to summon the nurse. One night the nurse was off with her boyfriend and the old woman died. The girl beset with remorse hangs herself and both women end up haunting the house. I am currently reading the Legend of Hill house and this little story appears in the book. It must have been a tv movie but no one seems to have ever heard of it. It is not the return to Hill house that was made in the 90’s which I saw on netflix a few months ago. If you have any idea please I would be so grateful.

  40. Kendra Raduly says:


    I have been racking my brain for years now trying to find this movie. I remember watching it on VHS as a child, that was recorded from the TV (or the other VHS, I’m not sure, it was before me). I believe it was made in the 1960’s or 1970’s and is in color. The only thing I really recall is it is about ghosts and takes place at a house by the sea. The scene I remember the most takes place in a red room with gold fixtures and a ghost of a woman in period costume. I’m sorry, I know this is a vague description. I hope my memory is accurate. If you can help me in any way, I would appreciate it.

    Thank you,
    Kendra Raduly

  41. Vladut Vasilescu says:

    Hi Kendra,

    I think that i have seen a similar ‘ghost story’ film in 1991 or 1992 on romanian TV channel. It was a period film, color. Unfortunately all i remember is that the action takes place in a castle / huge mansion on a cliff by the sea. There were some lingering shots of the coast and we could see the waves crashing by the rocks at twilight, this being shown through a window of the castle.. Then in the main room (salon) of the mansion, there was a big painting on the wall portraying a mysterious woman dressed in a white? gown; she was wearing a huge coiled seashell which was covering one of her breasts. Some people were gathered at a table, but two of them approached the described painting. I remember a red carpet on the floor.. It was a luxurious salon.
    Also thunderstorms at night and thick fog in the morning.. and a woman dressed in a white? gown walking along the shore at night??
    Sadly, that is all i remember about the film, as i’ve seen the last 30 minutes of it…

    * It is NOT a Vincent Price movie, although the setting in the beginning of ‘Morella’ segment from “Tales of Terror” (1962) – that matte painting – somehow reminds me of the movie i’ve seen.

  42. Robert Hood says:

    Malinda…. I feel as though I should be able to name the movie you describe. But nothing springs to mind.

    Kendra … likewise, but your description is fairly generic, so it’s not surprising that the film is a little hard to identify.

    Vladut… thanks for your detailed additions, but the details you offer don’t ring a bell with me, so perhaps whatever the film is I haven’t seen it. I confess I haven’t seen all the of films on this list. It’d take a life-time!
