With The Woman In Black available on Blu-ray & DVD May 22nd, we'll soon be able to see Daniel Radcliffe get the heebie-jeebies in the comfort of our own home. Radcliffe stars as a young lawyer who travels to a remote village to handle the estate of Alice Drablow, a scorned woman whose ghost is terrorizing the locals by taking their children. The film is filled with shocking scares as Radcliffe finds himself at the center of a mystery putting him directly in the sights of the Woman in Black herself.

The Librarian - Ghostbusters

The ghost that started it all and pretty much ruined it for any ghoul or demon who would think to mess with New York City. The Ghostbusters formed shortly after investigating a paranormal disturbance in the stacks of the New York Public Library. What they found was a sweet librarian floating off the ground and insisting for silence. When she didn't get that silence, this was the result:

Though she lacks the strength and might of Gozer the Gozerian, she's on the list because I personally find the Librarian far more scary. And also because Gozer is a shape shifting Sumarian god. Therefore, ineligible for this important list.

The Grady Daughters - The Shining

As if kids aren't creepy enough, imagine coming face to face with a ghost kid. And not just any ghost kid, but a ghost kid that warns you're going to be murdered. Now multiply that by two. So creepy, right?!!

Matilda Dixon - Darkness Falls

There's nothing worse than a woman scorned and Matilda Dixon certainly has a bone to pick. Dixon was once adored by all the children of Darkness Falls and gave them prizes when they lost a tooth. This earned her the nickname of the Tooth Fairy. After being horribly injured in a fire, she became sensitive to light and only ventured out after nightfall. Her deformity caused the town's parents to grow distrustful and they executed her after two children went missing. After which the children returned unharmed.

Dixon's vengeful ghost has haunted the shadows of the town ever since, ripping the jawbones out of unlucky victims. Measure twice, cut once, townspeople. Sheesh.

The Blair Witch - The Blair Witch Project

It can be argued that The Blair Witch Project kicked off the found footage trend. Billed as an actual documentary, audiences were terrified by being shown very little. In fact, the Blair Witch herself is never actually seen on-screen. She's terrifying enough cackling in the darkness, kicking tents and leaving bundles of hair and teeth outside her future victim's tents.

Large Marge - Pee-wee's Big Adventure

Large Marge's ghost has been condemned to haunt the same stretch of road on which she died many years ago. It was the worst accident anyone had ever seen.
There was this sound, like a garbage truck dropped off the Empire State Building... And when they pulled the driver's body from the twisted, burning wreck. It looked like this...

Though she is nice enough to pick up hitchhikers and give them a lift. So she's not all bad. Just be sure to tell them Large Marge sent you when you get to your destination.

Sadako - Ringu

The American version of The Ring kicked off a massive trend of horror remakes, and though very scary, not quite as scary as the original. The vengeful spirit of Sadako Yamamura kills all those who watch the cursed videotape that features footage of her climbing from the well where her remains rest. Thank God we've all switched to DVD and Blu-ray at this point.

Kayako - The Grudge

Though Sadako is terrifying, the top honors go to The Grudge's Kayako. Also a vengeful spirit, Kayako stalks her victims relentlessly in a never ending cycle of terror. No place is safe once her curse has its sights set on you. If you hear her distinctive growl burp, it's already too late for you.
