Right?!

The Uninvited is another ghost movie which has a shocking twist at the end.

The Others

I almost put that movie on my list. It reminded me of "The Sixth Sense" in obvious ways.

The Changeling

Three of my absolute favorites right there! George C. Scott was fantastic in The Changeling.

He was a great actor. I often thought that he was underrated. IMO, he was right up there with Nicholson and Pacino. He was perfect for his role in "The Changeling".

I couldn't agree more. He was definitely one of my favorite actors. I thought he was great in the 1984 Television version of A Christmas Carol. To me, he was the most convincing Scrooge ever.

I liked his role in Firestarter as well.

I thought about that movie when I replied to your other post. Most critics claimed that Alastair Sims set the gold standard for the role of Scrooge. Both actors were great in that role. The film adaptation, of Peter Straub's "Ghost Story", also featured classic actors in their golden years.

Ghost Story definitely had an all star cast. It's really hard to believe that movie is as old as it is. It's not a movie that you see replayed on T.V. or any pay channels much and I could never figure out why. It had a great plot and the acting was fantastic in that movie.

Time flies when you're having fun....or not. I think that the movie is dated. I mean that as a compliment. It's superior to most post-2000 formulaic horror films. It isn't "found footage". It isn't based on a "true story". It doesn't put blood and gore above good acting and good writing. It's a real ghost (not demon) story.

Insidious is a great movie. I thought it had a decent plot and some good 'jump' scenes in it. I did some movie soundtrack work for one of the actor's independent films a while back so I might be a bit partial though. ;)

Considering my favorite Loki moment was when Hulk was pummeling him over left and right I'd say I'm more partial to perv a lot more on Natasha's posterior ~ I'd even get a copy just to get my finger on the pause

My favorite has to be the Sixth Sense, that movie was so emotional, and the ending was just..so great.
