5. The Others (2001). Grace Stewart (Nicole Kidman) a mother who lives with her two young children in a remote country house in in the immediate aftermath of World War II. The children, have a disease that makes them sensitive to sunlight. After a series of eerie events, Grace begins to fear there are others in the house. This movie had a strange twist at the end. The others weren’t the ones movie goers had suspected. “Haven of Evil” also has a strange twist towards the end.

4. The Amityville Horror (1979). A movie based on Jay Anson's 1977 novel of the same name. A couple moves to a house with their children and things begin to get strange. This movie is a must see during the Halloween season. It has it all as far as a good haunted house movie is concern, from ghostly experiences to demonic eyes peering through the window. I thought about this movie while writing my book.

3.Poltergiest (1982). Ghosts are very active in this movie. A glass of milk spontaneously breaks, silverware bends and furniture moves on its own accord. The phenomena seem benign at first, but quickly begin to intensify. Later on, a tree in the backyard of the house comes alive and grabs a boy through the bedroom window. And strange things come through the Television set. What would you do if you live in a house like this? I know I would get out fast.

2. The Exorcist (1973). Technically speaking the Exorcist isn’t a haunted house movie. But evil does reside inside a house. Would you live in a house with a demon possessed child living only a few doors down from you? Well, I thought so.

1.The Shining (1980). This is the king of all haunted house movies, by the horror master himself, Stephen King. Some may say the haunting didn’t happen inside a house, but a hotel. Let me say, a hotel is nothing except a big house with a lot of guest. “Haven of Evil” was heavily inspired by the Shining.
