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

  • Insidious

    DIRECTOR: James Wan
    CAST: Patrick Wilson Rose Byrne Ty Simpkins

    here are already three movies released, but we still prefer the original from the director of Saw and The Conjuring. It's about the story of a couple whose son inexplicably enters a comatose state and becomes a vessel for ghosts in an astral dimension who want to inhabit his body, in order to live once again. Insidious was the next big thing to be produced by Jason Blum after Paranormal activity, and managed to make $100 million of a budget of $1.5 million. Read more

  • Mama

    DIRECTOR: Andrés Muschietti
    CAST: Jessica Chastain Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Megan Charpentier

    After Pan's Labyrinth there was no getting around Guillermo Del Toro anymore. The master of dark and sinister yet magical atmospheres caused fans to look forward to Mama immensely. And the Mexican filmmaker did not let us down. The supernatural horror plays with the concept that evil entities may latch on to people, and that simply leaving a house is not good enough 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.
