It has been described as one of the best ghost movies of all time. Like Bly Manor it tells the tale of a young governess caring for two orphan children who become convinced that the house and grounds are haunted. She gradually comes to believe that the children are possessed by the spirits of their former governess and her sadistic lover.

The Woman In Black [2012]

The Woman In Black (2012)

Based on the 1983 novel by Susan Hill, this adaptation is perhaps most famous for starring the post-Potter Daniel Radcliffe. The story follows a recently widowed young lawyer, played by Radcliffe, who is employed to retrieve documents from the desolate Eel Marsh House as a prelude to legally settling the estate of the house. Death seems to stalk the house, and there's a catalogue of jump-scares throughout the film.
