If you love ghost stories, then you’ll love this week’s marathon. It’s about funny ghosts, mysterious ghosts, enormous ghosts and jelly ghosts. As usual, I selected different types of movies to let the marathon be enjoyable for everyone. I think that the eighties ghosts movies are the best, but I chose also a “more modern” one.
- Ghostbusters, 1984, directed by Ivan Reitman, with Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Sigourney Weaver. You can’t leave behind a film like this. It has laugher, it has eighties ghosts, it has a bit of fear for the god of destruction, it has Bill Murray. It has everything.
- Beetlejuice, 1988, directed by Tim Burton, with Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis. I know a lot of people who have never seen this movie. First, I think that Tim Burton deserves always a chance. Second, this became a cult movie that every film lover should have in his collection.
- The Others, 2001, directed by Alejandro Amenàbar, with Nicole Kidman and Fionnula Flanagan. It’s a supernatural gothic horror movie, perfect for a marathon of this type. What is a ghost movie marathon without a well done horror movie?
Which ghost movies would you have chosen?
P.s. I love Bill Murray
