This week brings moviegoers the premiere of the paranormal thriller, “Red Lights.”

The movie stars Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy as psychologists who debunk paranormal theorists and psychics. Robert De Niro plays one such psychic, a blind man who comes out of hiding after his chief critic mysteriously dies. While the jury may still be out on this movie, there’s plenty of consensus out there for the best, and worst, paranormal movies.

Whether it’s spirits taking control over bodies, aliens haunting a small town or just an old-fashioned ghost story, what movies particularly shook you to your core? And which movies shook you with laughter? Everyone loves a good, bad scary movie. (Or is that a bad, scary movie?) Which one is your favorite?
