In doing so, however, the ceremony unearths the spirit of the writer’s first wife making things all the more complicated with the writer’s current wife of five years. What follows is a wild love triangle of supernatural silliness. Read more

A compelling ghost story still gives us the creeps, no matter how often it has been done before. Enthusiasts of haunted house genre should continue reading, as the last couple of years have been great with the coming of quality low-budget indie flicks like Paranormal Activity and the Conjuring as well as big productions from Hollywood like Mama & Crimson Peak. It is a classic genre, and one that is by no means on its way out. More than just being creepy entertainment, these films make us wonder about the supernatural, as well as what it means to be a human being.
