So here are ten of my favourites:
A gamut of emotional charges, you won’t forget Carrie. Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie – need I say more?
The Others 
I consider this film to be close to perfection. Nicole Kidman – Fionnula Flanagan – and something supernatural.
Rosemary’s Baby 
Mia Farrow at her most mesmerizing. Babies and devils – what’s not to like?
Pan’s Labyrinth 
Spellbinding and monstrously beautiful. Ivana Baquero’s ‘Ophelia’ comes of age in a dark parable.
The Descent 
Tense and claustrophobic with all female cast including our very own Sarah-Jane Moone. Your skin will ‘crawl’.
The Innocents 
The chill of the haunt is superb. Deborah Kerr – and all the classic ingredients for a stunning, shivering experience.
The Orphanage 
The most frightening ghosts are always the children. Unless you are made of stone, you will cry with Belén Rueda.
A woman obsessed – a woman scorned. Who would mess with Annie Wilkes? Kathy Bates rocks.
Julia’s Eyes 
So what if you couldn’t see? Who would you trust? A classic ‘danger lurking in the shadows’ and another great performance from Belén Rueda.
The Babadook 
One of my favourites of recent times. A disturbing mind f**k from Essie Davies and her portrayal of troubled mother, Amelia.
