About Bat 7931 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Always Sometimes Monsters and The Witcher


  1. My Favourite Ghost Story is “The Innocents” starring Deborah Kerr, I think the Film is still scary today because it was shot in Black and White and still oozes Atmosphere and has a very chilling ending.

  2. Oh, hard to choose, but The Sentinel from 1977 scared the life out of me. It hasn’t aged well with time, but a great story none the less

  3. AW it has to be Ghostbusters because it is funny, quality and quite frankly THE best ever film with ghosts (along with Ghostbusters 2)

  4. Gosh this is so hard – I actually love so many, I think perhaps it’s a toss up between Thirteen Ghosts and The Others while nether are probably the ‘best’ around they do have happy memories attached to going and seeing them at the cinema so it always brings a smile to my face rather than a chill to my spin when I see the names come up.

  5. Not a ghost story as such but nontheless spooky…my favourite is Pans Labyrinth. It’s a mixture of real life, mythical creatures and monsters. In particular, the pale man is very scary and more so when you find out that he eats children.

    Despite the film being subtitled, I found it very easy to grasp and was in awe when I watched it. Similarly, another film by the same producer, The Orphanage, is equally as spooky.

  6. Ghostbusters – I love the range of different ghosts you see, and in Ghostbusters II you even see ghosts come out from the Titanic! :O

  7. Haunted (1995) Starring Aidan Quinn, Kate Beckinsale, Anthony Andrews and John Gielgud

    Because right from the Edwardian prologue, a palpable air of malevolence hangs over this tale of murder, madness and memory, without spoiling the film for any one this is a cracking good ghost story for its time and even though the premise of the film has been done countless times after if you get the chance to see i would encourage you to 😀

  8. My favourite ghost film of all time is fragile because it is different and I haven’t seen a ghost film like it before. Some parts in this film did surprise me.

  9. Guillermo del Toro’s “The Devil’s Backbone” – really creepy tale set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War.

  10. The Entity because the unseen is always more scary and believable, the fact it follows her when she moves is creepy.

  11. The ghost dentist movie with Ricky Gervais !! 😉

    VHS2 segment Phase 1 is one of the scariest, creepiest ghost stories Ive seen in a long while. The guy next to me was thinking about walking out it was scaring him so much.

  12. ‘The Sixth Sense’ and ‘Ghost’ – Both in my book are Brilliant and how can you not have ‘A Christmas Carol’ of which there are so many versions !

  13. The best one lately I have seen has got to be Insidious. The one that scared me the most that I would NEVER watch again is; “The Conjuring”.

  14. It would have been Sixth Sense apart from someone telling me the ending just as I settled down to watch it grrrrrrrrrr

  15. Firstly I would have to say Insidious 2 was brilliant. Really liked how the mixed in No 1 into it. Very clever! And a few spooky moments too – so a big thumbs up for me.

    My fave ghost film is 13 Ghosts. Not the best by a long shot – but def my fave – fun – entertaining – and I never tire of it!

  16. My absolute favourite ghost horror movie is “Poltergeist” closely followed by “Paranormal Activity”. They never fail to freak me the hell out and give me a couple of sleepless nights! Poltergeist especially continues to spook me even after all these years!

  17. The Others, as the twist in it is amazing and even after you no what it is you can still watch it again and enjoy it 🙂

  18. My Favorite ghost film has to be The Fog, this film made me quake with fear and is just so intense. I have to wake up many a morning in really deep fog and go to work, this film all remonstrates on me as I step outside. Freaky

  19. “The Amazing Mr Blunden” – it’s just great, Laurence Naismith is wonderful as Mr Blunden and the fabulous Diana Dors is splendid playing an evil character.

  20. I would say ‘Ghost’ with Patrick Swayze in is a favourite because it’s a film that shows ghosts aren’t all bad and it was such a delicate and moving movie.
    But then ‘Poltergeist’ is definitely a favourite too, the effects were amazing when it first came out, with a fabulous story line and amazing actors!

  21. I love the Amazing Mr Blundell. It’s scary by any means but a true classic that kids can watch too and gets your mind thinking!

  22. Ghost (1990) – only because it’s one of the few ghost stories that doesn’t go all out to scare you but is actually just a romantic movie instead.

  23. Oooh definitely has to be Paranormal Activity 1!!! Cos it the only scary film that made me cry & be paranoid haha. Funny enough watched it in front of my mirrored wardrobe!!!! LOL

  24. My favourite horror is actually Insidious. I don’t scare easily – special effects don’t bother me, blood and gore aren”t frightening and the only types of horror that scare me are things I can actually believe in or believe I *might* have experienced myself. Up until I watched Insidious, the only film that had come close to raising a tingle on the back of my neck was Paranormal Activity.

    Insidious took it to a whole new level. I have long been fascinated by astral travel – although sadly I’ve never accomplished it, mainly because I lose concentration when the possibility of what might be in the astral realm pops into my head – so to see something I’ve actually often considered brought to life was a true spine tingler.

    As for the ending – that was so unexpected and truly mind-messing. I’m slightly ashamed to say I actually cried in fear when I saw that camera and it took me a good 20 minutes of leg-crossing agony before I was brave enough to venture to the bathroom! I can’t wait to see what they’ve done with the sequel!

  25. The Orphanage, because it’s a great film that subverted the usual ghost story films by bringing you crashing back to reality.

  26. Technically not a film – but American Horror Story Season One – The ghosts in that are awsome, they can do some cool stuff, they make me wanna be a ghost in that house!
    The way they can exist around the living and you can’t even tell they are ghosts.

  27. For me, German ghost story Der letzte Angestellte (The Last Employee) freaks me out. When i saw it at Dead By Dawn a few years ago, the prospect of leaving a darkened cinema at 2am and then walking through the gothic-lit streets of Edinburgh to sleep in a small, unfamiliar hotel room after 90 minutes of sheer spook and suspense, closeted spaces, corner-of-the-eye glimpses of something-in-the-room did not seem appealing. Pretty sure I lay awake for another hour before I could even begin to close one eye!

  28. The Sixth Sense. It had such a great twist at the end and I caught it early enough before everyone was going around spoiling it by telling everyone.

  29. Six sense with Bruce Willis. Fantastic film nearly at end before I realised he was dead and only the boy could see him. Really well made.

  30. The Legend of Hell House as it’s got a great cast, a nice air of mystery, and enough ‘action’ to keep the plot moving along nicely.

  31. Poltergeist, a classic film that scared me when i was a kid – for some reason it was shown at my friends birthday party when we were about 8 years old!

  32. Lady in White. I watched it when i was younger and really enjoyed it. Didnt see it again for years but then managed to find it. Brought back some good memories.

  33. If you can call The Frighteners a ghost film, then it is my favourite, why you ask, just so well written with Michael J. Fox starting off in his ‘Back to the Future Role’ type acting, but then goes really dark and I think he ‘shines’ in his role. It is an underrated classic, like Galaxy Quest for the Sci-Fi genre.

  34. has to be INSIDIOUS when that demon is dancing around the house as a little boy arghhh freaks me out everytime i watch it lol and im not easily scared !! 😯

  35. Sinister was a good one I saw recently. Love both the Insidious movies. I even managed to blag my way into the Premiere of Insidious 2 when I was on holiday in LA last September 🙂

  36. my favourite ghost story is Poltergeist when i saw it when it first came out it really shook me up and had me hooked on horror/ghost films and books ever since it’s a genre that always makes me jump and certainly keeps me on my toes 😮

  37. Im a big fan of the Grudge. The Orphanage is also a cracking film, its Italian, so has english subs, but its great! 🙂

  38. Poltergeist. The film, and all its tragic/spooky surroundings. Pure coincidence I know – but always useful to terrify the gullible with!

  39. Poltergeist, because it was the very first scary film I ever watched and every movie I’ve watched since is judged on that one.

  40. The sixth sense because i really didn’t see the ending coming! Fantastic film and the wee boy actor was amazing!

  41. It has to be the original ‘The Haunting’ from 1963. It is absolutely chilling and a ‘real’ ghost story. The tension in the film just builds and builds!

  42. The Amityville Horror. My mum wouldn’t let us watch it because it was a true story. I remembered her saying this when I watched it as an adult, and found it gave me nightmares ….. :-Z

  43. going back some years now… High Spirits starring Peter O’Toole. A total wee take of conventional ghost stories and incredibly funny!

  44. The Sixth Sense for the simple reason I genuinely didn’t know that Bruce Willis was dead until he did. Such a clever film that completely draws you in.? It would seem a lot of people agree with me.

  45. The Sixth Sense for the simple reason I genuinely didn’t know that Bruce Willis was dead until he did. Such a clever film that completely draws you in.?

  46. Gost rider. i like nicholas cage and like superhero films so although its a little cheesy it has a good mix of what i like!

  47. The 6th sense. Brilliant film. Ending was so unexpected, used to work in a cinema and always watched audiences reactions at that part, no-one ever seemed to work it out

  48. Thir13en Ghosts, it’s the one I remember distinctively out of every horror film I have seen. I was pretty young when I watched it so probably why it seemed much more scary than it does now 😀

    Good luck everyone! 👿

  49. Ohh it has to be The Others!
    It’s so atmospheric & incredibly creepy at times! I also love the twist in it, definitely worth watching 😀 xx

  50. I love The Sixth Sense as it had me on the edge of my seat but I also love Ghost with the wonderful Patrick Swayze because it’s beautiful and romantic – 2 very different films but both amazing 🙂

  51. The Frighteners because even though it has a lot of comedy in it, the film is still quite creepy and it’s such a shame it’s not more well known.

  52. Amityville Horror! I love the original and the remake (although that may just be because of Ryan Reynolds). Not sure if it’s considered a ghost film, but being possessed by a ghost counts…right?! Anyway it really creeps me out every time I see it!

  53. For me it has to be Poltergeist. It probably scared memore than it should but that is because I watched it before I should !

  54. for pure fun factor i’d have to say Ghostbusters, but for a really scary ghost movie it’d have to be Poltergeist. I saw it when I was just a kid and it’s always stuck in my head as one of the scariest movies ever

  55. I love the original black and white film The Haunting. You never really see anything but it is so tense and jumpy. The banging on the door and no one there, the hatch in the ceiling dropping open.
