Movie Ghosts

If there's one thing that I've learned from watching horror movies (lots and lots of horror movies), it's that adult ghosts really aren't that scary. Threatening, maybe, and often dangerous, but not that scary.

The ghosts of children, on the other hand, tend to be creepy as hell.


  1. Glowing eyes and creepy broken body movement get me everytime!

  2. Up to a point, me too. But I got to the end of the first Grudge movie, and... well, the girl's inside The House, the ghost is doing its creepy limp crawl towards her, and I find myself rolling my eyes. I'm pretty sure that if I'd been in her position, by that point I'd be yelling imprecations at the ghost: "Oh, FFS, if you're gonna kill me just get over here and get it over with!"

    Whereas the bit where the little-kid ghost yowls like an angry cat? I'd have turned around and just walked right back out of the house before I'd even had a chance to meet the main ghost.
