Spirits of the Dead: Celluloid Hauntings and Cinematic Poltergeists

Ever since the dawn of time, humanity has been fascinated by the concept of the dead returning as ghosts to haunt the Earth, and this fascination has definitely translated to the medium of film. From poltergeists to revenants to just plain old paranormal activity, ghosts have been some of the most popular creatures to make it to the screen, and for good reason; there's just something so plausibly uncertain about the nature of the paranormal. So, without further ado, send me your favourite ghost movies, and I'll add them to my collection of happy haunts in this old dilapidated pile of a masterlist! Stay spooky, and stay aware!
