Packing a whole bunch of horror into its brisk run-time, Ghost Stories is a hugely enjoyable film that's as entertaining as it is terrifying.

[D]amn if this film isn't gangbusters at conjuring up genuine, honest scares, and at giving each of us a lot to think about while the end credits roll.

It's a tad too jump-scary to my taste, and none of the stories are mindblowing, but it is cleverly made and the film is obviously filled to the brim with love for the genre.

As delightfully spooky as the anthology stories are, the framing story turns out to be the most chilling -- and the most affecting -- of the lot.

Professor Philip Goodman is a self-satisfied TV debunker of all things "superstitious." But he's ripe for a rude awakening when tasked by a fellow non-believer to explain away three examples of the inexplicable.

All three segments rely on jump scares and horror cliches, but this is a film that's fully aware and appreciative of these ... let's say classical tactics

Sometimes betraying its stage roots, with an episodic structure, the same men who created it as a piece of theatre have done a good job of making this a more cinematic offering.

An unnerving anthology that perfects the nuts and bolts of haunted storytelling, and yet also subverts expectations, offers enjoyable nods to horror greats gone by, and builds towards a big finale.

A scary story that stumbles due to the style it adopts, but whose twist saves it. Sort of. [Review in Spanish]

It delivers its share of shivers and jumps with a restrained inventiveness I truly appreciated.

Ghost Stories knows [you know the tropes] & it relishes in taking those expectations & dangling them before you until you're snug in how you think [the film] will play out.

A gloomy day in Britain makes the most ordinary places creepy, and in these caravan sites and empty pubs it's their ordinariness that makes what you see so spine-tingling. Menace and misery permeates everything, until each story is drenched in sadness.

A few fleeting moments of well-directed tension in the first yarn about a nightwatchman can't make-up for the copy-cat contrivances of the rest of the film.
November 3, 2018
I love the tone of the film and its construction, but it ultimately goes to places I'm not willing to follow.
November 1, 2018
Not only an exercise in nostalgia but also in quintessential Britishness. This is a film where every sky is grey and where, if a man can wear a tan raincoat, he will.

It's a letdown to find that there's nothing at the bottom of a box of tricks which in themselves are not as clever as they could have been.
October 28, 2018
A rollercoaster ride from hell that keeps the audience entertained with a well-written screenplay that's backed by snazzy cinematography, slick editing, and enjoyable performances.
October 26, 2018
As far as creepy horror chillers go, Ghost Stories is a screaming success.
October 26, 2018
This is a low-tech affair, and all the more interesting for it. You never know quite where it's going, but it doesn't let up for a moment.
October 25, 2018
Ghost Stories offers a handful of genuine jolts, an unnerving sense that your eyes are deceiving you and a peculiarly English mood of wintry, existentialist despair.
