I’m beginning to think that the most difficult thing in the world is to make a truly satisfying ghost movie. This is a real pity, as I love nothing more than a really well-crafted ghost story.
In the past 15 years, the only ghost stories that really worked for me were The Sixth Sense (1999), The Others (2001), and The Orphanage [El orfanato (2007)]. These were all really interesting stories, genuinely spooky, had a nice little twist and left me feeling that I’d not been had. The endings wrapped up nicely and made sense, with no loose ends to drive me crazy.
Well, that’s 1 good ghost story for every 5 years. That’s a pretty sad state of affairs, isn’t it? Clearly there must be some good ghostly flicks out there that have just not met my radar.
So I ask you, my friends, do you have a favourite ghost movie that you can recommend? I’d love to hear any and all suggestions.
