Best-Scariest Contemporary Ghost Films - Part I


Scariest "Contemporary" Ghost Movies


Best 2000's American Ghost Movies |                               | Best 2000's Asian Ghost Movies |

100 Ghost Movies and Counting...

Ghosts, spirits, haunted houses and possession ... TOO SCARY 2 WATCH now presents a list (arranged by year) of what we believe are some of the creepiest ghost movies of the past decade or so, perfect for the person obsessed with the supernatural, and also suitable for the person with an appetite for things that go bump in the night!

The list will continue to be updated and expanded upon as we continue to find more movies that we believe are worthy of adding. We also plan to do more "Ghost Movies Lists" in the near future, seeing as, there are obviously many other good ghost movies that weren't able to be crammed into one list.


Since there are a ton of great ghost movies on the market spanning decades (both classic and contemporary) we've decided to create this list with the emphasis on the contemporary (meaning newer), beginning with Ringu (1998) and continuing through 2012 ... I thought it would be fitting to start with Ringu because "The Ring-2002 (one of my all-time favorites) ended up being the inspiration for this blog.

It can be argued whether some of the movies on the list are ghost movies (depending on how one defines a ghost movies) ... nevertheless, we've provided some movies that contain ghosts, some that contain ghost-like spirits, some that contain haunted houses, some that are psychological thrillers that are like ghost movies but actually aren't ghost movies, along with others that may be open for interpretation. 

I deliberately left out Religious Supernatural Thrillers (the ones centered around demonic possession, Christian exorcisms and strange religious phenomenon) because I plan to do a separate list for those types of movies in the future. There are of course, a few exceptions, which is why I have included a few of these types of movies on this list.

Some of the movies on the list, in our opinion, aren't necessarily good movies, but were chosen to be included for a variety of different reasons.

Thanks and enjoy!
