Random: 30 Day Horror Challenge Day 7

What's your favorite supernatural horror movie?

I loveeeee Poltergeist.  It combines so many good movie aspects -- Steven Spielberg, creepy children, frightening clowns, ghosts, and swimming pools full of skeletons.  It made the snow on the TV creepier way before The Ring and no matter how many times I see it, that scene with the stacked chairs gives me the freakin' willies.

I'm actually not a huge fan of most ghost/supernatural movies.  When a bunch of awesome and scary things happen in a movie, and then it turns out to be because of a ghost, I'm typically pretty disappointed.  But the ghost kinda made sense in Poltergeist and how can you go wrong with a little person screaming at a closet and Carol Ann being ejected all covered in goo? 

Additionally, the Poltergeist curse and all the craziness that surrounds it makes it all the more creepy.  Slightly exaggerated acting and silly quotes aside, this is a great classic flick.
