A Rundown of Ghost Movies

List and/or analyze different subcategories of ghost movies, i.e. horror, comedy, drama and give your opinion regarding the best and worst examples in each category.

  • You can have a look at children shows and films like Gasper the Ghost and analyse how we perceive the ghost figure. Is it always a scary and disturbing presence? Can it be friendly? Why do ghost figures keep fascinating us? – Rachel Elfassy Bitoun 8 years ago
  • There's also Poltergeist (first movie not the crap that was the sequels.) – SpectreWriter 8 years ago
  • Found footage is probably the most popular in the current moment, thanks in no small part to the Paranormal Activity series. That popularity probably stems from the invasive feeling it broaches upon the viewer - we are literally spying on the everyday life of the characters. The best I can personally think of is Paranormal Activity 2; the worst is that flick set in Paris - I can't even recall it's name it was so bad. – DocHamme 8 years ago
  • This topic might be better focused if given a point to explore rather than "your opinion", not that that's bad but there are tons of "best/worst" articles out there. Perhaps explore how the different genres effectively use ghosts to present their themes. – smartstooge 8 years ago
