10 Horror Movies You Won't Be Able To Sleep After Watching

9. Ghostwatch

The Nightmare 2015

You don't get banned from television for nothing.

Ghostwatch follows a BBC news crew who, live on air, visit the most haunted house in Britain. Without giving too much away, these reporters will learn first-hand about what it means for curiosity to kill the cat.

At first Ghostwatch seems like it's nothing more than a gimmick, playing on the idea of what would happen if a news team stumbled onto a paranormal event live on camera. As the film goes on, you'll realise that it is anything but gimmicky, because that would be letting you off too easy.

There a ton of things that make Ghostwatch so infamously scary, but the main one that we'll be focusing on here is its plethora of hidden ghosts. Much like Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House, the movie contains many instances of spirits playing hide-and-seek.

Whereas in Hill House finding the hidden ghosts feels more like a fun game of Eye Spy, in Ghostwatch it's the opposite. Each time you see one of these stealthy spectres, even when you are actively seeking them out, they will make your skin crawl. Their very presence not only makes the film all the more spooky, but will no doubt make you check every nook and cranny of your bedroom before unsuccessfully laying down to sleep.
