I am thinking more like psychological thriller types, rather than supernatural.

Rear Window
Vertigo
Sabotage
North by Northwest
To Catch a Thief

Actually, while based on the famous Henry James' story, the movie is called 'The Innocents' (1961). It is one of the most intelligent psychological/supernatural movies ever made ...the determination of which is which is left up to the viewer to decide. Truman Capote had a hand in the making of this movie and Martin Scorsese names it as one of the top ten scariest movies of all time. I agree. It's brilliant. The scene of Miss Jessel standing motionless staring from among the reeds in the lake (in the middle of the movie and also towards the end of the movie) gives me the chills whenever I think of it.

Here is the first time Miss Giddens sees 'the apparition' of Miss Jessel:
