The Frightfest Guide to Ghost Movies

Like many, award-winning filmmaker Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate, Tales of Halloween – both of which feature spectres) has been obsessed with haunted houses and revenants for as long as she can remember. In this volume, she surveys the last 120 years of the genre and reviews the 200 most memorable titles from across the globe. From timeless classics to recent blockbusters, quirky indies to international sensations, hidden gems to oddities, each of these movies has in some way contributed to the development of the ghost movie as we know it, in all its incarnations and cultural variants.
There are more than 200 entries because the book specifies various versions in its entries for "The Cat and the Canary", "A Christmas Carol", "The Canterville Ghost" and "The Turn of the Screw".
