Ghosts!

I was recently telling my friend Nicole about a few of my favorite ghost movies. So here is that brief list.

"The Haunting" - 1963 The original ghost story with little special effects making the main push of the story psychological (which if often the most frightening).

"The Fog" - 1980 A classic ghost tale of revenge starring Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Janet Leigh. Also featureing John Houseman, Tom Atkins, and Hal Holbrook.

"What Lies Beneath" -2000 Harrison Ford & Michelle Pfeiffer star in this tale of a ghostly secret.

"St. Francisville Experiment" -2000 This is a documentary-style film but slighter better than the Blair Witch project. I like the spooky feel to this one.

"Rose Red" Mini-series - 2002 Here is a Stephen King classic in the making! A great series that is now available on DVD which tells the story of a haunted mansion.

Now I also like the following movies for a good scare:


  • Thirteen Ghosts
  • Poltergeist
  • The Entity*
  • The Amityville Horror*
  • The Shining
  • Legend of Hell House (with Roddy McDowall)
  • House on Haunted Hill (with Vincent Price)

*These movies are more about demons but have great ghost-like moments and scares!



  • Today's Cure song is "10:15 Saturday Night" from the Boys Don't Cry CD -(1979) This is a great song that showcases Robert's guitar versatility. Slow, rhythmic, and the wailing!

"Waiting for the telephone to ring, and I'm wondering where she's been.
And I'm crying for yesterday, and the tap drips..."

Thank you for the list of ghost movies. I loved What Lies Beneath. I will have to check out some of the other movies on your list. I love the psychological ghost thrillers. Of course, it doesn't take much to scare me!
