If you like ghost stories, you’ll probably like….
— The Uninvited, possibly my favorite haunted house movie (Cornwall, cliff, ghost– how can you go wrong?);
— pretty much anything by Barbara Michaels (Ammie, Come Home, I’m looking at you);
— Helena Dela’s The Count, a ghost story with a twist;
— my adolescent favorite (although now rather dated), Lois Duncan’s Down a Dark Hall;
— and Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, which still terrifies me. Is it a ghost story? Is it a terrifying tale of psychological decay? Either way, it’s creepy.
