    Event Horizon. It's a "Haunted Ship" movie, but it's pretty much what you're looking for.

    A recent film but a old approach to the story telling, Little Stranger and you have the added bonus of Ruth Wilson.

  13. I'm gonna go a bit left field and say the original The Evil Dead from 1981. Not exactly about a haunted house but the characters become very haunted within the house as they are possessed by evil spirits. The franchise may be comedy but the original film is a truly ghostly horror film.

    Not exactly a haunted house flick, but the made-for-TV movie The Night Stalker has some chilling moments when Carl Kolchak invades the vampire Janos Skorzeny's abode!

    As someone who enjoys these listed, I second the nomination for The Others (2001).

    Yeah I love The Innocents. And it’s wide screen B&W which is something you don’t often see.

    The Woman in Black. Either the original or the Hammer remake starring Daniel Radcliffe. Both are good, imo.

    Not a Haunted House Movie, but a Real Good Haunted Hotel Movie, so assume close enough to qualify for this thread topic is '1408' based on the Stephen King Short Story. The Movie Cast includes John Cusack and Samuel Jackson(SJ makes every Movie he is in better-IMO, even in a Limited Part like he has in this Movie).

    A man who specializes in debunking paranormal occurrences checks into the fabled room 1408 in the Dolphin Hotel. Soon after settling in, he confronts genuine terror.

    Seems like Stephen King Short Stories or Novellas end up being better made Movies in most cases(Maybe because it is easier to develop a Movie for a Screenwriter off of Shorter Stories instead of trying to cram most of a Full Novel into a 2/2.5 Hour Length Movie? Although the Part 1 of 'IT' in 2017 was really good and cannot wait for Part 2 this Fall).

    I think the Innocents and the Others are the cream of the crop here.

    Just below those two, I would recommend the Orphanage.

    I didn't like the Conjuring at all, but many did, so maybe the OP will.

    I like Haunted Hill, but it's mostly comedy. The uninvited is good, but the tone is kinda odd and comedic, too.
