Haunted by you: 10 great films about ghostly romance

BY James Oliver

13th Aug 2017 Film & TV

Haunted by you: 10 great films about ghostly romance

Not all ghost stories are scary, says James Oliver. As these films show, there’s more than one way to be "haunted"...

Whether or not you actually believe in them, ghosts have proved themselves excellent subjects for stories over the centuries, from camp fire tales to hair-raising novels and, most recently, in movies.

Most such offerings are thoroughly creepy affairs but there’s a small group of films that are more emotional, where supernatural elements are used not to chill the blood but to explore feelings.

With unconventional spook show A Ghost Story materialising in cinemas now, we thought we’d look at some other notable examples of the form.

We begin with Ghost , and not just because it’s the best-known title on our list (Patrick Swayze? Demi Moore? Pottery? Yeah, that one). It’s also an excellent summary of many of the themes and ideas found across this list, of love, loss and grief, all packaged in high Hollywood style.

That means it’s shamelessly manipulative, of course, but that should not be taken as criticism. This is manipulation of the very highest order—Marks and Spencer manipulation, if you will. Even more cynical viewers might find themselves in danger of blubbering as the spirit of a murdered man (Swayze) reaches out across the great divide to his grieving girlfriend (la Moore) only... stop! I’ve got something in my eye! Boo-hoo!

Ahem. Anyway, it’s a proper three hankie weepie and then some.

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir 

Portrait of jennie.

More Hollywood tearjerking here—times two, in fact. Both are improbable romances: The Ghost and Mrs. Muir has Gene Tierney being wooed by deceased sea captain Rex Harrison, while in Portrait of Jennie , struggling artist Joseph Cotten discovers his muse (Jennifer Jones) comes from another time.

Each is lovely in its own right but it’s worth double billing them for what they can tell us together. Look at the dates when they were made—Mrs. Muir met her ghost in 1947 while Jennie had her portrait painted in 1948. In other words, they were released at a time when folks were still mourning those they lost in the most brutal war in history.

So not only do they depict the sadness of loss, they were also—in some minuscule way—a part of the mass grieving process. And seen like that, they become yet more moving still.

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir and Portrait of Jennie are but the tip of the iceberg vis a vis supernatural films of the 1940s. Seriously, there are loads— A Matter of Life and Death ; Blithe Spirit ; Heaven Can Wait ; Here Comes Mr. Jordan ...

A Guy Named Joe is another. Not quite as good as those listed above, but Steven Spielberg liked it well enough to remake it as Always . Transposed from wartime to peace time, it’s about a pilot doing his best to look after his gal, slowly learning to accept that he’s dead—and that she must move on.

Spielberg is a director often said to be awkward with love stories but this is the most unashamedly romantic thing he’s ever done. Oh, and it’s got Audrey Hepburn as an angel too, which might be typecasting but is another reason to see it.

Truly Madly Deeply 

Kiss of life .

ghost door boy love

The ghost story is a staple of British film—hardly surprising, given that Britain has more ghosts per square centimetre than anywhere else on Earth (well, probably). Sometimes they’re spooky ( Dead of Night , The Innocents ), sometimes they’re funny ( The Ghost Goes West , The Ghosts of Berkeley Square ) and sometimes, they’re a bit more sympathetic to our phantom friends.

Most obviously there’s Truly , Madly, Deeply ; released around the same time as Ghost , it deals with much the same sort of themes, albeit without the Hollywood sheen. Here it’s Juliet Stevenson who’s struggling to deal with the death of her partner (Alan Rickman), something complicated by the fact he’s still around in spectral form. 

Less well known is Kiss of Life . Directed by Emily Young, it concerns the spirit of a woman trying to reunite with her husband (Peter Mullen) after dying in a car accident. (Tragically, the film suffered its own bereavement—Katrin Cartlidge was due to play the lead but passed away days before shooting began. Ingeborga Dapkunaite’s performance is even more remarkable given how little time she had to prepare.)

Ugetsu Monogatari

ghost door boy love

Ghosts are found in every culture but the traditions can be very different, as can be seen in these two films from Asia.

Rouge comes from Hong Kong. The ghost here is that of a young courtesan who undertook a suicide pact with her lover in the 1930s. Unlike westerners, it seems they have the luxury of arranging to meet up again; when he doesn’t show, she sets out to find what happened.

Ugetsu Monogatari , meanwhile, is Japanese: the ghosts here are lonely and are not above deceiving living souls to supply companionship. But in this film deception is everywhere—some men are duped by ghosts, others by glory. Both are ultimately revealed to be illusory.

Neither depends too much on local mythologies and both speak of universal subjects: it would seem that unhappy spirits are the same the world over.

Midnight in Paris 

Mind you, not every ghost is a miserable old thing. Those in Midnight in Paris look to be having a high old time. And why wouldn’t they, when they are the shades of the gilded generation who flocked to France in the 1920s—yer actual Hemingway, yer actual Scott Fitzgerald, yer actual Salvador Dali.

Of course, they might not be ghosts in the strictest sense of the word. Maybe they’re just the product of a restless imagination, that of the young screenwriter played by Owen Wilson who lionises their achievements and who relishes the chance to pal about with them.

But let’s not start splitting hairs about dictionary definitions of "ghosts" and accept it belongs here. Otherwise we’ll end up in a right old metaphysical tangle, and no one wants that, do they?

A Ghost Story 

And in conclusion we come to the films whose recent release inspired this entire list. It earns its place not because of that, though, but because of the twist it places on the format.

All ghost stories depend upon the living being able to interact, however imperfectly, with the dead. Here, though, death is an unbreachable wall, with Casey Affleck on one side, watching his widow Rooney Mara on the other. And when she goes—moves on, as it were—he’s stuck in their house to stare at what follows. It is, if you’ll excuse the pun, thoroughly haunting.

‘The Ghost Next Door’ – Revisiting the 10th ‘Goosebumps’ Book and Its TV Adaptation

' src=

The Ghost Next Door was originally p ublished in August 1993 (Spine #10). The two-part series adaptation aired on Monday, September 28 & Tuesday, September 29, 1998 (runtime: 22 minutes and 22 minutes).

From whispers in the hallways and stories told at recess, when word of it first reached me as a kid, I felt like Goosebumps was less of a book series and more of a campfire story. Through rumor, it spread across the classrooms like wildfire, igniting imaginations and driving throngs of grade schoolers to the one place thought to be safe from the adolescent horde: the library.

While copies remained scarce, those of us dedicated enough to the cause stayed vigilant, watching the return bin between classes, hoping for a glimpse of the colorful, raised lettering that every kid in the school (and, as our logic would have it, the world) was talking about. So it was that I first found myself in possession of one of R.L. Stine’s already legendary tales.

The book was The Ghost Next Door , a story about a girl convinced that the new boy next door was as the title claimed. Far from the most terrifying story in the Goosebumps arsenal, The Ghost Next Door served as an ideal entry point for any kid enticed by the series’ eerie promise but repelled at the thought of outright terror. As I had fit that mold, the book welcomed me into the franchise with the perfect combination of hair-raising creepiness and otherworldly entertainment. From that book on, I was hooked.

It took five years before the story was produced for the screen, airing as one of the final episodes of the Goosebumps television series. While the episode maintains the primary twist from the page, it takes great liberties with what happens in between, leaning more on the fun side of haunting rather than the freaky. The end result, as is typically the case with episodes like these, is a far simpler tale that lands slighter than its source material.

By the time of the episode’s release, the original Goosebumps run had reached its conclusion with its sixty second entry and the show would retire only several months later. How fitting, in my experience at least, that the beginning and ending of these particular iterations of the franchise would be roughly bookended by the same tale. Although far from putting it to bed in my mind, seeing my first foray into the series realized onscreen did nothing but reinvigorate my fervor, suggesting that my love affair with Mr. Stine’s creation would, like the ghost on the page, never truly die.

Hannah’s summer isn’t going well; from a bad dream about being burned alive to all of her friends being away at camp, Hannah is at her wit’s end. That is, until she meets Danny, the new, cute boy next door. But, the weird thing is, she never noticed him move in, and he keeps disappearing. Then there’s the strange, dark shadow that’s been stalking her and whispering her name. Something’s not right and it seems to her that someone may not be as alive as they say they are.

The Ghost Next Door was released in August of 1993, landing as the tenth book in the Goosebumps line. Infused with more care and emotionality than most, it’s a story about a girl convinced that her neighbor is dead while ignoring all of the signs that she might be instead. Scary for a time and somewhat melancholy in its conclusion, the story proves the versatility of the series and is evidence that Goosebumps was capable of occupying every corner of genre storytelling.

The Adaptation

ghost door boy love

Both the book and the show begin with a dream. In the book Hannah is surrounded by fire, her closet, the wallpaper, even her mirror smolders under raging flame. The remainder of the first chapter depicts Hannah’s elation at being alive, spending the morning with her parents and six year old twin brothers in a great mood despite her talk of being stuck with them for the summer. The show realizes this sequence simply with the sounds of crackling and Hannah’s screams, leeching trauma from the event.

The episode excises Hannah’s family entirely, making for an incredibly different home dynamic. Hannah finds a note, remarking that her parents are out but brushes past it, providing a far more obvious clue as to what is actually going on in the story. This is further exemplified when Hannah calls the police after seeing a shrouded figure sneaking around outside and the operator can’t hear the girl’s words.

In both versions, Hannah heads outside and collides with Danny. In the book he hits her with his bike, saying he didn’t see her. They talk and discover that they’re neighbors, which perplexes them both as neither thought the other house was occupied. In the episode, something breaks her window and Hannah flees the house, bumping into Danny. Danny checks out the area, spooking Hannah and establishing a more playful relationship than the stilted one on the page.

Both the book and the episode are interspersed with letters to Hannah’s best friend that are never reciprocated, a point of contention for Hannah and an additional clue. Beyond that, the similarities between the thrust of the book and the episode become more scarce.

On the page, Hannah heads into town to mail one of her letters only to discover Danny with several other boys antagonizing the cruel town postmaster, Mr. Chesney. She leaves without being noticed and encounters a tall and slender figure that seems to be made entirely out of shadow. Seen in the opening moments of the episode, this entity chases her home, its twig-like figure riding on top of shadow, sliding toward her while whispering her name. The thing is a horrifying creation and far more effective on the page than the person shrouded in black that’s realized onscreen.

Days later, Hannah encounters Danny again in his backyard. She’s struck by a frightening premonition and subsequently watches as the boy falls off the roof of his garage. Miraculously, Danny is fine, but the experience makes her wary. She decides to further investigate and is caught looking in his window that night. The next day she follows him into town but is halted when her bike crashes into the intermittently appearing shadow creature.

Much of this is condensed in the episode or skipped over entirely. The day after their first encounter, Hannah sees Danny riding bikes with his friends and shouts a warning as Mr. Chesney’s mail truck nearly flattens him. More of a bumbling dope in the show than a maliciously hateful figure as depicted in the book, Mr. Chesney serves as a kind of comic foil to the kids’ antics rather than an active villain.

Similar to the book, Hannah decides to spy on Danny in the show. She turns up at his house and is found out almost immediately. She encounters the shadow figure again here too, but instead of whispering “Hannah” as it does on the page, it threatens her and jeers, a decision that serves to lessen the entity’s mysteriousness and scare-factor.

In the show she returns home and comments that she feels like an orphan in light of her parents’ continued absence. In true late 90’s fashion, she resorts to a rudimentary internet search engine, finding an article about a house fire that claimed an anonymous family in her town. Returning to Danny’s house, she finds his mother who does not react to Hannah while going about her chores. Hannah confronts Danny with this information who, in return, reveals that his mother is deaf. Hannah apologizes, satisfied that her neighbors are alive. Later Danny returns, telling Hannah that her house burned down three years prior. Hannah retreats and phases through Danny.

In the book, it takes much more trial and tribulation to arrive at Hannah’s truth. After revealing that Danny did not see the shadow figure that supposedly knocked Hannah off her bike, Hannah hurries off. She continues to write to her friend and spend time with her family at home, allowing for time to pass and for the story to feel more full of life, almost in spite of its subject matter. She becomes convinced that Danny is a ghost, even after Danny discovers that belief and makes a joke out of it. The same interaction with Danny’s mother occurs, although Hannah does not immediately confront him about it, and her spying reveals the bad social crowd Danny is falling in with.

Hannah watches as Danny and his cohorts steal ice cream cones from the local parlor. She follows them down the road and continues to spy as they loiter in front of Mr. Chesney’s house, the other boys daring Danny to dislodge and steal the postmaster’s handcrafted mailbox. At that moment, Hannah has another premonition, the shadow again descends and Mr. Chesney confronts the boys who have successfully broken his mailbox.

After escaping, Hannah confronts Danny, concerned about the trouble he might get into with those other boys while revealing her theory that he and his mother are ghosts. As in the show, Danny reveals his mother’s deafness and Hannah departs feeling sheepish. Again, she’s attacked by the shadow, this time it howling for her to stay away from Danny and donning a burning red eyed stare. The next morning, however, it’s Danny who turns up to accuse Hannah. Why didn’t the other kids from school know who she was, he wondered. He falls and Hannah attempts to help him up. Her hand moves right through him. The hand of a ghost.

After this reveal, the book and the show continue their separate paths. In the show, the truth allows Hannah to see her house as it truly is. A burnt shell, the insides charred and empty, Hannah wanders her house feeling alone. The shadow reveals itself here and, taking a completely different direction than the book, tells Hannah that it’s there to teach her how to be a ghost. Assuming a more comedic, adventurous tone, Hannah learns about basic haunting and how to move objects with her ghostly form, all while being told to avoid Danny as he is one of the living.

In the book, Hannah overhears a real estate agent showing off her family’s home, explaining to the potential buyers the tragedy that had occurred there five years before. The dreamlike summer days and the way time seemed to float by for Hannah suddenly came into sharp focus and there’s a sad sense of realization regarding the dream that opened the story. The book is laced with emotion that’s absent from the show and makes the twist feel more personal and intimate rather than existing for the sole purpose of surprise.

Within that cold realization, Hannah has another premonition about Danny. She follows him again, watching as he and his friends return to Mr. Chesney’s house. They remove Mr. Chesney’s mailbox this time and then break into his house. She follows and watches through a window as a strange orange light grows— a fire. The dark figure returns, warning her to stay away. Danny’s companion’s abandon Danny fearfully as the fire grows. Hannah musters her courage and grabs hold of the darkness, tugging at its face and revealing Danny’s visage beneath the shadow.

In the show, Danny reveals to his friends that Hannah is a ghost. Calling his bluff, they dare him to prove it. Danny returns to Hannah’s house to ask for her help but offends her and leaves. The shadow warns that Hannah should not interfere with Danny, that the only reason he can see her is that he’s destined to leave the land of the living by midnight.

At the same time, Danny’s friends dare him to stink bomb Mr. Chesney since the boy was unable to procure a ghost. Danny breaks into Mr. Chesney’s house and lights a match to ignite the bomb. Afraid, he drops the match which catches on the carpet and the house starts to burn. At the same time, Hannah realizes the shadow is attempting to kill and consume Danny, that her purpose for returning from the afterlife may be to save him.

On the page the darkness smiles with Danny’s face, revealing itself as Danny’s ghost. It explains that when Danny dies in the fire, it will be born and Danny will be sent to the shadow world from whence the entity came. Embracing her lack of a mortal coil, Hannah pushes out of the shadow’s grasp and heads into the flames. Encircling Danny, she moves him to safety. Twisting in the flames, the shadow figure vanishes as Danny tastes fresh air.

In the episode, Hannah has to rely on her ghost training to pick up a loose doorknob and get Danny out of the closet in which he had taken refuge. After realizing that she lacks the ghostly strength to lift him, she spots a piano and, like she had earlier in the episode, begins to play, attracting the attention of those watching outside. Mr. Chesney hurries back inside and carries Danny to safety, casting the shadow creature into nothingness.

Both versions conclude in a similar way. In the show, Danny realizes that he cannot see Hannah any longer. At the same moment, Hannah finally finds her family again. They’ve been waiting and assure her that she’s done a good job. That it’s time to come home. Danny raises his eyes to the sky and thanks his friend.

In the book, later on in the night, Danny recounts that it was Hannah who saved him. Despite this, he’s told that there is no Hannah, no girl next door and that the person he’s referring to died five years prior. It’s then that Hannah hears the voice of her mother from above, beckoning her back to her family. She floats upward, taking her last look down at the earth with tears on her cheeks, reminding Danny to remember her. Unsure if he can hear her, she simply hopes he might as she leaves the world behind.

While both versions take fairly different paths to get there, they both find their way from friendship and fear to heartbreak and sentimentality in a manner that differentiates The Ghost Next Door from any other entry in Goosebumps canon.

Final Thoughts

There’s a palpable excitement to the hurried, hushed reverence afforded to those things which fiercely capture the minds of the young. By the time I actually held a Goosebumps book in my hands, I was already a devotee, fully prepared to fall in love with whatever the page had to offer, even if it scared me a little to read it.

The Ghost Next Door inducted me into R.L. Stine’s universe of eeriness with humor, horror and heart, a surprisingly wistful anomaly in an otherwise spooky landscape. Hannah’s tale of trepidation regarding the mystery of her new neighbor traverses a complex emotional path that provided a window into the relatable terrors the Goosebumps series would have in store as well as the depth of character it was capable of exploring. While the book accomplishes its aims more thoroughly and with greater impact, the episode manages to repurpose Hannah’s journey in a fun and engaging way that still manages to resonate with a touch of emotion in the end.

By the time The Ghost Next Door hit my television screen, I was starting to put aside the things of my younger days and aging out of the books and toys on my shelf. After all, five years is a lifetime when you’re young. But even as I purged my room of those dusty and forgotten treasures I no longer saw any use for, my Goosebumps books remained untouched and I still tuned in for those final episodes.

For these were stories that didn’t treat kids like kids. Stories that refused to shy away from death, pain and terror, while still playing in a world of wonder, joy and love. Like The Ghost Next Door , these were stories that deserved to be whispered about near the swing sets, outside of classrooms and over sack lunches as kids waited patiently by the library return bin, hoping for a glimpse of that vibrantly hued, bumpy moniker that always sent a shiver down any self respecting grade-schooler’s spine.

Any and every Goosebumps reader should truly beware, for, if my experience is any indication, they’re not just in for a scare, they’re in for a lifetime of them.

Best of 2023: The 10 Best Horror Books of the Year

' src=

Much like movies, television, and streaming platforms, it’s been a densely packed year for horror books as well. If the selection of horror movies available this year feels overwhelming, it pales in comparison to the horror renaissance that the book world offered this year.

The horror book industry has truly become more robust and expansive than ever, with 2023 bringing no shortage of fear-inducing reads through fiction and nonfiction alike.

Whether you’re in the mood for supernatural chills, slasher thrills, visceral terror, or insight into your favorite horror films and tropes, 2023 had it all.

Here are the ten best horror reads of the year.

10. How to Sell a Haunted House by Grady Hendrix

How to Sell a Haunted House

Bestselling author Grady Hendrix gives his spin on a horror staple: the haunted house. Louise gets called back to her hometown after her parents die in an accident. More than begrudgingly leaving her daughter with her ex, Louise dreads dealing with her brother Mark most of all. She’ll have to put aside her volatile differences with Mark to prep their parents’ house for sale, but that’s before the place reveals that it doesn’t want to be sold. Enter mom’s creepy puppets, led by the reigning champ of creepy: Pupkin. Hendrix’s distinct blend of scares and sentimentality aims to give a fresh spin on the familiar horror story, and its southern setting and depiction of family sets it apart.

9. The Black Guy Dies First: Black Horror Cinema from Fodder to Oscar  by Robin R. Means Coleman, Ph.D. and Mark Harris 

The Black Guy Dies First

This one is a must for fans of the acclaimed documentary  Horror Noire , based on Robin R. Means Coleman’s 2011 nonfiction book. Coleman teams up with prominent horror expert and journalist Mark Harris to analyze themes, tropes, and traits that have come to characterize Black roles in horror since 1968. The pair chronicle the history of Black horror films, from fodder like Spider Baby  to the Oscar-winning  Get Out and beyond. Unlike most academic texts, though, Harris and Coleman bring a charming sense of humor that makes their examination of the genre and its tropes easily digestible and fun.

8. Mister Magic by Kiersten White

Mister Magic

Kiersten White’s novel follows a group of surviving cast members three decades after an unspeakable accident on the set of their children’s show stopped production permanently. The survivors assemble for a podcast to share their memories working on the kid’s show, but the more they look to the past, the more they realize sinister forces were at play. Mister Magic employs unimagined horrors, a creepy kids’ show host, and a hefty dose of ’90s pop culture nostalgia for a strange, abstract horror story that feels akin to a creepypasta.

7. Looking Glass Sound by Catriona Ward

Looking Glass Sound

As prolific a writer as Catriona Ward is, it’s impressive how layered, complex, and twisty her horror stories can be. Such is the case with this psychological horror story that follows a writer, Wilder Harlow, embarking on his last novel. He intends to pen the story of his childhood, of the summer where a killer prowled his New England town. The more he gives himself over to his work, the more Wilder’s grip on reality changes. Ward uses a meta narrative to explore the horrors of buried trauma and society’s true crime obsessed culture, but with mind-bending storytelling that rewards.

6. Silver Nitrate  by Silvia Moreno-Garcia 

Silver Nitrate

Whereas  Mexican Gothic  delivered a Gothic romance, and  The Daughter of Doctor Moreau   retooled a sci-fi horror classic, Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s latest t akes on Nazi occultism and cursed films set in the film industry in ’90s Mexico City. The author blends occultism, mysticism, cultural specificity, and a love of the horror genre into a compelling read made richer by the world-building. Much like Stephen Graham Jones, Moreno-Garcia wields horror movie history to her narrative advantage here for a fun genre page-turner.

5. Our Share of Night by Mariana Enriquez, translated by Megan McDowell

Our Share of Night

Technically, this sprawling horror tome was first published in Argentina in 2019. Thanks to translator Megan McDowell, complete with stunning prose, Our Share of Night made its way stateside early this year. The story spans several decades, from ’60s London to Argentina’s military dictatorship, anchored by the occult pursuits of the Reyes family. As expected for its massive scope, this journey is long and arduous. But it’s also melancholy, haunting, unexpected, and sometimes downright cruel in a way that impresses.

4. The Reformatory by Tananarive Due

The Reformatory

It’s not surprising at all that Stephen King referred to Tananarive Due’s latest as “one of those books you can’t put down.” There’s an almost Castle Rock type of small town evil bubbling just beneath the surface of a Florida town in the Jim Crow era. It’s also a personal horror story for the author; Due drew inspiration from her great uncle Robert Stephen’s death at the far-too-young age of fifteen. The Reformatory toggles between two perspectives, that of young Robbie as he’s sent to the reformatory school and his sister Gloria as she attempts to set her brother free. Robbie also happens to have the ability to see ghosts. Due’s stunning, emotionally charged masterwork of historical fiction blends supernatural with reality based horror in a way that gets under your skin.

3. Boys in the Valley by Philip Fracassi

Boys in the Valley

Described as “ The Exorcist  meets  Lord of the Flies , by way of  Midnight Mass ,” Philip Fracassi’s novel is scary! The novel is set at an orphanage over winter, where a group of men arrive one night with an injured, sickly man in need of dire help from Father Poole. The man’s death unleashes an evil that spreads within the orphanage, leading to more death as hard battle lines form between good and evil. While the setup may feel familiar, Fracassi ensures what transpires is anything but with a full-throttle horror story that’ll leave you scrambling for the light switch with your jaw on the floor. It’s unnerving in the best, most propulsive way.

2. Don’t Fear the Reaper  by Stephen Graham Jones

don't fear the reaper

The second entry in the Indian Lake Trilogy reintroduces final girl Jade Daniels as older, wiser, and worn down by the enduring problems that she faced in the wake of the last book’s massacre. This Jade has left her slasher obsession behind in Proofrock. But four years later, Jade’s return to the town that scorned her coincides with the escape of convicted serial killer Dark Mill South, who’s out for revenge in her neck of the woods. Stephen Graham Jones’ endless well of slasher knowledge makes for a gripping sequel that expands the characters and body count while slowly peeling back the layers to Jade’s vulnerability in an unbelievably satisfying slasher sequel. Good thing we don’t have too much longer of a wait for the trilogy’s conclusion.

1. Whalefall by Daniel Kraus

Whalefall book cover

Jay Gardiner feels a tremendous weight of guilt over his father’s passing. So much so that he decides to retrieve his father’s remains from the sea. But his solo dive proves to be a grave mistake when an eighty-foot, sixty-ton sperm whale swallows him whole amidst a fierce battle with another sea creature. Daniel Kraus’ brisk-paced novel toggles between survival horror and an internal journey through grief in the most propulsive way possible. Jay’s keen survival instincts and the insanely disturbing obstacles that comes from being swallowed alive gets grounded by the melancholy process of forgiveness. It results in the most pulse-pounding, fast read of the year, making it no surprise that a movie adaptation is already in development.

Step Inside the Mysterious Ending of ‘Lockwood & Co.’ Season 1

.css-1ylq17j em,.css-1ylq17j i{font-variation-settings:'ital' 1;}.css-1ylq17j strong,.css-1ylq17j b{font-weight:700;} ‘Lockwood & Co.’ Ending: Wait, What Happens with George?

🤐 SPOILER ALERT 🤐

In the  first season of  Lockwood & Co. , Lucy Carlyle (Ruby Stokes) escapes a rough home life to join Lockwood & Co., a teen-run ghost-hunting agency in a very haunted London. She proves to be an exceptional “listener” — someone who can hear spirits — and becomes a huge asset to the agency, where her partners are Anthony Lockwood (Cameron Chapman) and George Karim (Ali Hadji-Heshmati). The crew hunt down not only ghosts, but also the answers to mysteries that not even their rival agencies can suss out. While doing so, they nearly die or become “ghost locked” (basically, a haunted coma) countless times. 

So how’d it all end up? We’ll answer your burning questions and rehash that spooky ending. 

ghost door boy love

Who’s in Season 1?  

Bridgerton  breakout   Stokes, up-and-coming actor Chapman and  Holby City ’s Hadji-Heshmati star in the series as the gifted listener Lucy, sensitive know-it-all Lockwood and snarky whiz kid George, respectively. Ever since The Problem (aka ghosts running rampant in London), the world of  Lockwood & Co.  has been populated by a variety of shady characters. Filling out the cast are Ivanno Jeremiah as DEPRAC (aka the Department of Psychical Research and Control) Inspector Barnes, Hayley Konadu as Flo Bones, Jack Bandeira as Quill Kipps (the Lockwood agency’s fiercest rival), Morven Christie as Penelope Fittes, Ben Crompton as Julius Winkman and Luke Treadaway as The Golden Blade. To read more about the cast and characters,  check out this guide .

Who is Edmund Bickerstaff?

A gravedigging operation hires Lockwood & Co. to investigate a historical cemetery where Edmund Bickerstaff, a rumored necrophile who performed ghostly rituals, was buried more than a century ago. They uncover an iron coffin containing a skeleton and an unusual mirror they refer to as the Bone Glass. This was all mysteriously sealed away decades before The Problem began. In researching the case, George realizes the person in the iron coffin is Bickerstaff himself. Before Lockwood & Co. can do anything with the mirror, it’s stolen from under their noses.

What’s the Dulac book?

Attending a party held by Fittes, the renowned paranormal investigation agency, Lucy and Lockwood sneak into the library to steal a rare book. At first, occultist Mary Dulac’s book of confessions appears to be full of nonsense and made-up mysteries. But upon closer inspection, it tells how Dulac killed Bickerstaff while he held the Bone Glass for her to see. After shooting him, she sealed him up so as not to unleash his dark powers on anyone else. The book reveals that the Bone Glass is in fact not a mirror at all, but a window to another realm that possesses anyone who looks at it. 

ghost door boy love

How does  Lockwood & Co. Season 1 end? 

After stealing back the Bone Glass from black marketeer Julius Winkman, Lucy and Lockwood are confronted by expert swordsman (and accomplice of Fittes Agency chairwoman, Penelope Fittes) The Golden Blade. Barely escaping him, they hand off the mirror to George and Lockwood’s former associate and relic hunter, Flo. The plan is to return the Bone Glass to DEPRAC — but as soon as George is left alone with it, he diverts from his route and instead makes a call to a mystery person, telling them he has the mirror. 

Lucy and Lockwood, on the outs because Lockwood has yet again put them in grave danger, make amends just in time to more closely read the Dulac book. They learn that the mirror hypnotizes people — and notice George has been drawing hypnotic circles all over their house ever since he encountered it. George, meanwhile, makes it to the cemetery with the Bone Glass. There, he meets up with paranormal researcher Pamela Joplin, the mystery woman he’d called earlier; she tells George it’s better that the two of them have intercepted the Bone Glass, because DEPRAC would have destroyed it forever, eliminating any chance of finding out how The Problem started in the first place. 

ghost door boy love

Back home, Lucy communicates with the trusty relic George stole from a previous job — a skull in a jar — and it helpfully tells her that George can be found in the cemetery. Lucy and Lockwood realize Joplin must have arranged for the Bone Glass to be stolen by Jack Carver, the man who earlier showed up at their door with a knife in his back — who she then kills when he double-crosses her. 

Meanwhile, Joplin and George descend into the catacombs, where George finds Fittes agent Kipps being attacked by a rogue spirit. After George saves him, Joplin handcuffs Kipps and threatens him with a knife that George eventually recognizes is the weapon that killed Carver. 

When Lucy and George arrive at the cemetery chapel, they notice Bickerstaff’s body is no longer in his iron coffin. They figure it must be in the catacombs, but their descent is interrupted by Kipps’ fellow Fittes agents, who’d followed George to the cemetery to intercept the Bone Glass. The two groups set aside their differences and band together to find the missing agents, George and Kipps. Winkman and his crew approach, so Lucy goes down to rescue George while the rest fight them off — and barely get away. 

In the catacombs, Lucy consults the ever-reliable skull in a jar, who says he was there when the Bone Glass was made and that it was created from the bones of seven bodies — whose torment was trapped in the glass to make a window to “the eternal.” The skull says he’s never actually looked in the mirror, because it’s too dangerous: The way to look is through someone else’s eyes — someone weak, curious and vulnerable. Lucy thinks of George. 

Nearby, George notices Bickerstaff’s corpse and questions Joplin. She says she’s figured out that kids have the best ability to see into the beyond and wants to use Kipps as a conduit to see (indirectly) into the Bone Glass — to the eternal. George puts two and two together: He was going to be the conduit had they not come across Kipps. But Kipps has lost his ghost-hunting powers — which happens with age — so he’s useless. Joplin lets him go, instead targeting George.

ghost door boy love

Lucy finds George tied up and offers to look into the mirror to save his life, which Joplin agrees to. But it’s a trick: Lucy has the skull look into it instead. The skull tells Lucy what it sees is not what they expect: The mirror doesn’t give viewers a glimpse of their truest desires; it kills them. George breaks the mirror, but Joplin is still able to gaze into it — which destroys her and frees the trapped souls within it. Lockwood, who’s been shot by The Golden Blade while fighting off Winkman and his crew, recovers in time to save Lucy and George from Bickerstaff’s ghost, who escapes when the mirror explodes. After the dust settles, Lockwood makes peace with Kipps. 

But it’s not  all happily ever after: The series hints at a larger conspiracy involving Penelope Fittes and The Golden Blade, and it ends on a cliff-hanger just as Lockwood prepares to reveal more about his mysterious past.

Will there be a  Lockwood & Co. Season 2?

So far, we have no clue if Lockwood, Lucy and George will continue their adventures into a second season. But if we get to see Lockwood & Co. once more, there are a few questions we’ll be desperate to get answers to:

Since The Golden Blade admitted he doesn’t work for Fittes, what are he and Penelope up to with all these undercover rendezvous? 

As Season 1 ends, Lockwood leads Lucy and George to the mysterious room in his house. What’s Lockwood hiding? Will his past — including what happened to his parents — be explained? 

George takes a backseat in most of the adventures in Season 1, but the crew seem to make amends with him at the end, promising that he’s more than just backup. Will he get more involved in their ghostly pursuits come Season 2? 

Will Kipps become closer with Lockwood & Co.? Lockwood and Kipps make peace after the Bone Glass is destroyed — but will it last? 

Will Winkman go to trial — or to jail — for running an underground black market? And will we see more of his creepy son, Leopold? 

And will Lockwood and Lucy — who seem to be milliseconds away from kissing a number of times in Season 1 — continue to get closer? The people want to know.

Boy went door-to-door wishing people a Merry Christmas to help himself feel better, since the passing of his mother [VIDEO]

Posted: January 1, 2024 | Last updated: January 1, 2024

Boy goes door-to-door wishing people a Merry Christmas

Everybody goes through pain , but they process this pain in different ways. Those who grew up in stable families often fear the loss of their mother. For one little boy, he has no reason to fear this. He’s already faced the reality of his mother passing away. This holiday season is the young man’s first without having his mother with him. As a result, the boy decided to go to the people at his apartment complex to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

The holiday season is supposed to be the happiest time of the year. However, the true facts are that millions of people are the saddest during this time of year. Often, it reminds people of all of the things they’ve lost. Also, many of these people are alone during the end of every year, which ends up making them very sad. One little boy is living this reality, as his mother is no longer with him, and this is during the worst time of the year for happiness.

Instead of internalizing his pain, or hurting others, a boy who lost his mom decided to do good. As a result, he went through his apartment complex, and went to every neighbor’s door. He went to every neighbor and wished them a Merry Christmas. After all, there are a lot of people who live alone. As a result, they’ll spend the holidays alone. So, if no one was there to even tell them Merry Christmas, this boy did so.

50 Of The Best Ghost Movies

My favourite ghost-themed horror movies! Every film on this list I'd rate at least a 7/10. I guess the list is in a vague order, but don't pay too much attention to it. There's quite a few highly regarded asian films I've not seen, so if they're not on this list that's probably why. Quite a few ghost films (especially English-speaking ones) didn't make my cut of the 50 best, so here are some other recommendations of good (but not great) ghost films: Pulse (2001), Wind Chill, The Uninvited (2009), The Bunker, Grave Encounters 2, A Tale Of Two Sisters, They Wait, Ghost Ship, The Haunted (1991), White Noise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, House On Haunted Hill (1959), Death Ship, Half Light, Mama, Haunted (1995), What Lies Beneath, The Woman In Black (1989), The Innkeepers, Crimson Peak, Below (2001), The Awakening and The Entity.

1. The Shining (1980)

R | 146 min | Drama, Horror

A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where a sinister presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from both past and future.

Director: Stanley Kubrick | Stars: Jack Nicholson , Shelley Duvall , Danny Lloyd , Scatman Crothers

Votes: 1,087,741 | Gross: $44.02M

Arguably the best ghost movie - if not the best horror movie - of all time.

2. The Changeling (1980)

R | 107 min | Horror, Mystery

After the death of his wife and daughter in a car crash, a music professor staying at a long-vacant Seattle mansion is dragged into a decades-old mystery by an inexplicable presence in the mansion's attic.

Director: Peter Medak | Stars: George C. Scott , Trish Van Devere , Melvyn Douglas , Jean Marsh

Genuinely unsettling. A must see classic.

3. The Others (2001)

PG-13 | 104 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

In 1945, immediately following the end of Second World War, a woman who lives with her two photosensitive children on her darkened old family estate in the Channel Islands becomes convinced that the home is haunted.

Director: Alejandro Amenábar | Stars: Nicole Kidman , Christopher Eccleston , Fionnula Flanagan , Alakina Mann

Votes: 387,929 | Gross: $96.52M

A modern classic, one that earns its place among the all time great ghost movies. A creepy old mansion, set in 1920's England, an intriguing mystery and a creepy kid - it ticks all the boxes! The twist is a highlight, so loses a little punch on a second viewing, but that's common with most ghost movies.

4. Ringu (1998)

Not Rated | 96 min | Horror, Mystery

A reporter and her ex-husband investigate a cursed video tape that is rumored to kill the viewer seven days after watching it.

Director: Hideo Nakata | Stars: Nanako Matsushima , Miki Nakatani , Yûko Takeuchi , Hitomi Satô

Votes: 76,192

Some say the American remake is actually a little better, and it is good, but it's a tiny bit too glossy for my taste, the original just has that grittier *edge* If you're not keen on subtitles then absolutely go for the American remake!

5. The Haunting (1963)

G | 112 min | Horror

Hill House has stood for about 90 years and appears haunted: its inhabitants have always met strange, tragic ends. Now Dr. John Markway has assembled a team of people who he thinks will prove whether or not the house is haunted.

Director: Robert Wise | Stars: Julie Harris , Claire Bloom , Richard Johnson , Russ Tamblyn

Votes: 42,003 | Gross: $2.62M

Has set the standard for all haunted house movies since it's release. It's creepy now, so this must have been terrifying back in 1963!

6. It Follows (2014)

R | 100 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

A young woman is followed by an unknown supernatural force after a sexual encounter.

Director: David Robert Mitchell | Stars: Maika Monroe , Keir Gilchrist , Olivia Luccardi , Lili Sepe

Votes: 263,839 | Gross: $14.67M

Such a simple concept, but utterly terrifying. You have to see this movie. Not a traditional ghost movie by any means, but I still consider it part of that sub genre. You can run away, but it will never stop following...

7. The Devil's Backbone (2001)

R | 106 min | Drama, Horror, Thriller

After Carlos - a 12-year-old whose father has died in the Spanish Civil War - arrives at an ominous boys' orphanage, he discovers the school is haunted and has many dark secrets which he must uncover.

Director: Guillermo del Toro | Stars: Marisa Paredes , Eduardo Noriega , Federico Luppi , Fernando Tielve

Votes: 70,242 | Gross: $0.75M

Made when Guillermo del Toro was at his peak, and a film that earned him his stripes on the international scene, way before Pan's Labyrinth. A great story that doesn't lose anything by his later overuse of CGI. A classic.

8. Lake Mungo (2008)

R | 87 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

Strange things start happening after a girl is found drowned in a lake.

Director: Joel Anderson | Stars: Rosie Traynor , David Pledger , Martin Sharpe , Talia Zucker

Votes: 27,803

Combining a realistic documentary-style format with found footage elements interspersed throughout, this film is a slow burning mystery with a terrifying payoff. Good luck sleeping after seeing this! A masterclass in the found footage genre.

9. The Fog (1980)

R | 89 min | Horror, Thriller

An unearthly fog rolls into a small coastal town exactly 100 years after a ship mysteriously sank in its waters.

Director: John Carpenter | Stars: Adrienne Barbeau , Jamie Lee Curtis , Janet Leigh , John Houseman

Votes: 81,714 | Gross: $21.38M

It's got that slightly garish and cheesy 80's thing going on in places, but if you can set that aside this is an absolute classic. A definite top 10 ghost movie for me.

10. R-Point (2004)

R | 107 min | Action, Horror, War

During the Vietnam War, a South Korean base receives a radio transmission from a missing squad, presumed dead, and sends a platoon to rescue the lost squad from the R-Point.

Director: Su-chang Kong | Stars: Kam Woo-seong , Son Byung-ho , Lee Sun-kyun , Park Won-sang

Votes: 5,777

The scariest and most engaging Korean horror movie I've seen yet. Horror films centred around war naturally have an unsettling edge, and this film uses it brilliantly.

11. The Woman in Black (2012)

PG-13 | 95 min | Drama, Fantasy, Horror

A young solicitor travels to a remote village where he discovers that the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.

Director: James Watkins | Stars: Daniel Radcliffe , Janet McTeer , Ciarán Hinds , Emma Shorey

Votes: 191,159 | Gross: $54.33M

Some prefer the 1989 version, and while I'm usually not a fan of remakes, for me this version is the superior film. A moody creep-fest with an atmosphere so think you can cut it with a knife. If you can get past Harry Potter in a serious role you'll be in for a treat.

12. The Conjuring 2 (2016)

R | 134 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

Ed and Lorraine Warren travel to North London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by a supernatural spirit.

Director: James Wan | Stars: Vera Farmiga , Patrick Wilson , Madison Wolfe , Frances O'Connor

Votes: 295,189 | Gross: $102.47M

I found The Conjuring 2 slightly scarier than the first, but both are very good - you can't go wrong with either! This sequel is about the famous Enfield Haunting in the UK during the 70's.

13. The Eye (2002)

R | 99 min | Fantasy, Horror, Mystery

A blind girl gets a cornea transplant so that she will be able to see again. She gets more than she bargained for upon realizing she can also see ghosts.

Directors: Danny Pang , Oxide Chun Pang | Stars: Angelica Lee , Chutcha Rujinanon , Lawrence Chou , Jinda Duangtoy

Votes: 29,924 | Gross: $0.51M

From when asian horror was at its peak, this is one of the highlights of that era, only topped by Ringu in my opinion. A woman undergoes an operation to restore her sight, but as her sight slowly returns she see things that no one else can... Very, very creepy. Skip the American remake, it's not very good.

14. The Sixth Sense (1999)

PG-13 | 107 min | Drama, Mystery, Thriller

Malcolm Crowe, a child psychologist, starts treating a young boy, Cole, who encounters dead people and convinces him to help them. In turn, Cole helps Malcolm reconcile with his estranged wife.

Director: M. Night Shyamalan | Stars: Bruce Willis , Haley Joel Osment , Toni Collette , Olivia Williams

Votes: 1,036,261 | Gross: $293.51M

We all know about this one. Minus the plot twist, there are some great creepy moments that make it worth watching, even if you know how it all ends.

15. Session 9 (2001)

R | 97 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

Tensions rise within an asbestos cleaning crew as they work in an abandoned mental hospital with a horrific past that seems to be coming back.

Director: Brad Anderson | Stars: David Caruso , Stephen Gevedon , Paul Guilfoyle , Josh Lucas

Votes: 62,179 | Gross: $0.38M

An overlooked gem that has been gaining more of a cult following in recent years, and deservedly so. That guy from CSI takes on a restoration job at an old mental hospital, naturally things get pretty creepy.

16. Ju-on: The Grudge (2002)

R | 92 min | Horror

A mysterious and vengeful spirit marks and pursues anybody who dares enter the house in which it resides.

Director: Takashi Shimizu | Stars: Megumi Okina , Misaki Itô , Misa Uehara , Yui Ichikawa

Votes: 47,491 | Gross: $0.33M

More commonly known as The Grudge. Again, I'd say this is slightly better than the American remake, only due to the grittiness the lower budget lends to the feel of the film. The remake is more than acceptable if you don't like subtitles.

17. Candyman (1992)

R | 99 min | Horror, Thriller

The Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, is accidentally summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster's myth.

Director: Bernard Rose | Stars: Virginia Madsen , Xander Berkeley , Tony Todd , Kasi Lemmons

Votes: 98,938 | Gross: $25.79M

Commonly mislabelled as a slasher flick, this shockingly well made film is actually a very clever urban ghost story ...just a very gory one! Some brilliant cinematography and a haunting score by Phillip Glass make this a cut above, not to mention the career defining performance from Tony Todd as the titular Candyman. Shame about the "twist" ending.

18. The Legend of Hell House (1973)

PG | 95 min | Horror

A physicist, his wife and two mediums are hired to investigate the Belasco House, where 27 guests had inexplicably died in 1927, along with most of a team of paranormal investigators that was sent in the early 1950s.

Director: John Hough | Stars: Roddy McDowall , Gayle Hunnicutt , Pamela Franklin , Clive Revill

Votes: 13,872

A really classy production from the 70's. A bunch of paranormal researchers set up camp in an old mansion, of course the sceptics soon question their convictions. It's a pretty generic plot, but it's so well made it really set the standard for this style of ghost movie - films today that use the same set-up usually can't come close to this.

19. Poltergeist (1982)

PG | 114 min | Horror, Thriller

A family's home is haunted by a host of demonic ghosts.

Director: Tobe Hooper | Stars: JoBeth Williams , Heather O'Rourke , Craig T. Nelson , Beatrice Straight

Votes: 177,291 | Gross: $76.61M

All time classic, and surprisingly spooky for a family friendly film! The sequels aren't up to much, nor the remake.

20. Under the Shadow (2016)

PG-13 | 84 min | Drama, Fantasy, Horror

As a mother and daughter struggle to cope with the terrors of the post-revolution, war-torn Tehran of the 1980s, a mysterious evil begins to haunt their home.

Director: Babak Anvari | Stars: Narges Rashidi , Avin Manshadi , Bobby Naderi , Arash Marandi

Votes: 29,740 | Gross: $0.03M

A great slow-burner from Iran. If you don't mind a fairly slow-paced film then you'll be in for a creepy treat! Definitely one for folks looking for something in the vein of The Babadook. I didn't think that much of the dubbing job, so would recommend the original version with subtitles if you can find it.

21. Grave Encounters (2011)

Not Rated | 92 min | Horror, Mystery

For their ghost hunting reality show, a production crew locks themselves inside an abandoned mental hospital that's supposedly haunted - and it might prove to be all too true.

Directors: Colin Minihan , Stuart Ortiz , The Vicious Brothers | Stars: Benjamin Wilkinson , Sean Rogerson , Ashleigh Gryzko , Merwin Mondesir

Votes: 62,935

What starts out as a typical found-footage horror film soon does a bait and switch and turns in to a terrifying roller coaster with nightmarish, surreal qualities. It successfully parodies, then wipes the floor with the majority of found footage horror films.

22. Silent Hill (2006)

R | 125 min | Horror, Mystery

A woman, Rose, goes in search for her adopted daughter within the confines of a strange, desolate town called Silent Hill.

Director: Christophe Gans | Stars: Radha Mitchell , Laurie Holden , Sean Bean , Deborah Kara Unger

Votes: 241,342 | Gross: $46.98M

This film gets a bit of a hard time due to its video game origins and OTT third act, but I think people are too hard on it. If you want to see some really, really creepy ghosts & creatures this is a must see. Great atmosphere.

23. Deathwatch (2002)

R | 94 min | Drama, Horror, War

In the middle of World War I, nine British soldiers caught behind enemy lines seek refuge in a complex network of German trenches. What they soon discover is that they aren't alone - and it isn't a German soldier that's hunting them down.

Director: M.J. Bassett | Stars: Jamie Bell , Rúaidhrí Conroy , Mike Downey , Laurence Fox

Votes: 13,146

The best horror film set in either World War. Captures the horrific nature of trench warfare during WWI and throws the supernatural in to the mix. Claustrophobic and unsettling, a must see.

24. The Innocents (1961)

Not Rated | 100 min | Horror

A young governess for two children becomes convinced that the house and grounds are haunted.

Director: Jack Clayton | Stars: Deborah Kerr , Peter Wyngarde , Megs Jenkins , Michael Redgrave

Votes: 32,661 | Gross: $2.62M

25. The Orphanage (2007)

R | 105 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

A woman brings her family back to her childhood home, which used to be an orphanage for handicapped children. Before long, her son starts to communicate with an invisible new friend.

Director: J.A. Bayona | Stars: Belén Rueda , Fernando Cayo , Roger Príncep , Mabel Rivera

Votes: 162,035 | Gross: $7.16M

A great spooky ghost mystery. A young boy moves in to a new house that used to be an orphanage and acquires an "imaginary" friend. Very good.

26. The Conjuring (2013)

R | 112 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse.

Director: James Wan | Stars: Patrick Wilson , Vera Farmiga , Ron Livingston , Lili Taylor

Votes: 545,885 | Gross: $137.40M

Released during a glut of substandard supernatural / exorcism-themed horror movies, this one really stood out as an example of how to do a modern ghost movie. Followed up by a spin-off called Annabelle which really isn't up to the same standard.

27. The Blair Witch Project (1999)

R | 81 min | Horror, Mystery

Three film students vanish after traveling into a Maryland forest to film a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend, leaving only their footage behind.

Directors: Daniel Myrick , Eduardo Sánchez | Stars: Heather Donahue , Michael C. Williams , Joshua Leonard , Bob Griffin

Votes: 280,695 | Gross: $140.54M

Does this count as a ghost film? The film never clarifies exactly what the Blair Witch is, obviously a witch is strongly implied, but a ghost is also hinted at - maybe a ghost witch? It's some kind of supernatural being in either case, just watch the film and judge for yourself, you'll either be bored or terrified!

28. Dark Water (2002)

PG-13 | 101 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

A mother and her 6-year-old daughter move into a creepy apartment whose every surface is permeated by water.

Director: Hideo Nakata | Stars: Hitomi Kuroki , Rio Kanno , Mirei Oguchi , Asami Mizukawa

Votes: 34,508

Another quality asian horror film from the boom that started with Ringu. The creepy setting and unfolding mystery helps Dark Water hold it's own against Ringu, The Eye and The Grudge. The remake is a bit flat, but not terrible. I'd recommend putting up with the subtitles on this one tho.

29. Stir of Echoes (1999)

R | 99 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

After being hypnotized by his sister-in-law, a man begins seeing haunting visions of a girl's ghost and a mystery begins to unfold around him.

Director: David Koepp | Stars: Kevin Bacon , Zachary David Cope , Kathryn Erbe , Illeana Douglas

Votes: 86,292 | Gross: $21.13M

A solid ghost mystery with the legendary Kevin Bacon. After being hypnotised at a party, Mr. Bacon starts to see things... is he going mad, or is he being guided by supernatural forces? Some great creepy moments. Well worth a watch!

30. House on Haunted Hill (1999)

R | 93 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

An amusement park mogul offers a group of diverse people $1,000,000 to spend the night in a haunted house with a horrifying past.

Director: William Malone | Stars: Geoffrey Rush , Famke Janssen , Taye Diggs , Peter Gallagher

Votes: 59,654 | Gross: $40.85M

Despite the cheesy, generic characters, cringy dialogue and very limp ending, when it comes the scares and pure entertainment this really delivers! Plays out like a carnival ghost train in movie form. If you can handle the cheese this is creepy as hell and very entertaining!

31. The Uninvited (1944)

Passed | 99 min | Fantasy, Horror, Mystery

A composer and his sister discover that the reason they are able to purchase a beautiful gothic seacoast mansion very cheaply is the house's unsavory past.

Director: Lewis Allen | Stars: Ray Milland , Ruth Hussey , Donald Crisp , Cornelia Otis Skinner

Votes: 12,294

It may be a bit tame by todays standards, but this classic still gives us a good mystery with a few creepy moments. See it to know your roots, as it were!

32. Oculus (2013)

R | 104 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.

Director: Mike Flanagan | Stars: Karen Gillan , Brenton Thwaites , Katee Sackhoff , Rory Cochrane

Votes: 138,044 | Gross: $27.70M

A good bit of psychological horror mixed in with some nicely underplayed ghost encounters. Definitely has a Amityville Horror feel about it, but with far more subtext to get your teeth into. Kept me thinking / guessing well after the credits rolled.

33. Sleepy Hollow (1999)

R | 105 min | Fantasy, Horror, Mystery

Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of three people; the culprit is legendary apparition The Headless Horseman.

Director: Tim Burton | Stars: Johnny Depp , Christina Ricci , Miranda Richardson , Michael Gambon

Votes: 379,859 | Gross: $101.07M

A very well-made, big budget telling of the Sleepy Hollow story. A good story, great performances all around and some stunning visuals thanks to Tim Burton's unique style. It's PG-13, so don't go expecting any huge scares though.

34. Don't Look Now (1973)

R | 110 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

A married couple grieving the recent death of their young daughter are in Venice when they encounter two elderly sisters, one of whom is psychic and brings a warning from beyond.

Director: Nicolas Roeg | Stars: Julie Christie , Donald Sutherland , Hilary Mason , Clelia Matania

Votes: 61,234 | Gross: $0.98M

After a couples young daughter tragically drowns in a pond, they go on vacation to Venice to help get over their grief and repair their marriage. Not long after arriving, the girls father keeps seeing what looks to be a child who's wearing the exact same red coat, hat and boots that his daughter wore when she died. Is it the ghost of his daughter? A haunting, unsettling film that explores grief. You will not see the ending coming...

35. The Skeleton Key (2005)

PG-13 | 104 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

A hospice nurse working at a spooky New Orleans plantation home finds herself entangled in a mystery involving the house's dark past.

Director: Iain Softley | Stars: Kate Hudson , Peter Sarsgaard , Joy Bryant , Gena Rowlands

Votes: 121,565 | Gross: $47.81M

Seems to split opinion in some quarters, but I've always thought rather highly of this film. A very solid spooky mystery set in New Orleans, a must see for fans of the genre.

36. Drag Me to Hell (2009)

PG-13 | 99 min | Horror

A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.

Director: Sam Raimi | Stars: Alison Lohman , Justin Long , Ruth Livier , Lorna Raver

Votes: 215,433 | Gross: $42.10M

While this isn't strictly a ghost film, there are so many horror tropes thrown in the mix that it it hits the ghost quota well enough to get a place on this list. A young woman receives a gypsy curse and is subjected to unrelenting barrage of creepy and horrific things - a real roller coaster of a film! May be a little bit full-on / OTT for some.

37. Lady in White (1988)

PG-13 | 113 min | Fantasy, Horror, Mystery

An author tells the story of how, as a young boy growing up in a 1960s small town, he was haunted after witnessing the murder of a little girl.

Director: Frank LaLoggia | Stars: Lukas Haas , Len Cariou , Alex Rocco , Katherine Helmond

Votes: 7,939 | Gross: $1.71M

A slightly fluffy ghost movie, not quite as raw or spooky as I usually like. It's held in high esteem though, and I did enjoy it, so happily recommend it here.

38. The Sentinel (1977)

A young woman moves into an apartment in a building which houses a sinister evil.

Director: Michael Winner | Stars: Cristina Raines , Ava Gardner , Chris Sarandon , Martin Balsam

Votes: 11,745

Solid horror-mystery with an unsettling and slightly odd atmosphere, as well as some really creepy scenes. It's a little rough around the edges and it's very 70's, plus it's more about demonic entities than traditional ghosts, but I think it still deserves to be on this list. Great ending.

39. The Ward (2010)

R | 89 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

An institutionalized young woman becomes terrorized by a ghost.

Director: John Carpenter | Stars: Amber Heard , Mamie Gummer , Danielle Panabaker , Laura-Leigh

Votes: 44,391

A slightly underrated horror film from John Carpenter. Not his best movie, but far from bad. Recommended.

40. Hide and Seek (2005)

R | 101 min | Horror, Mystery

As a widower tries to piece together his life in the wake of his wife's suicide, his daughter finds solace, at first, in her imaginary friend.

Director: John Polson | Stars: Robert De Niro , Dakota Fanning , Famke Janssen , Elisabeth Shue

Votes: 88,165 | Gross: $51.10M

Enjoyable mystery flick with a slightly undercooked psychological/drama element. Solid performances from Bobby DeNiro and Dakota Fanning, as well as a nice twist ending make this worth a look.

41. Jessabelle (2014)

PG-13 | 90 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident, Jessabelle comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return -- and has no intention of letting her escape.

Director: Kevin Greutert | Stars: Sarah Snook , Mark Webber , Joelle Carter , David Andrews

Votes: 25,569

Good performances, high production values and an engaging mystery with some pretty creepy moments - you can't really go wrong with this!

42. The Guard Post (2008)

121 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

A group of GP506 soldiers have been brutally massacred, leaving only one alive but comatose. A military police investigator has only that night to uncover the facts, but ends up discovering a terrifying truth.

Director: Su-chang Kong | Stars: Chun Ho-jin , Hyun-jae Cho , Young-hoon Lee , Kim Byeong-cheol

Votes: 1,881

Another classic from South Korea. A military guard post on the South / North Korean border has been abandoned for an unknown reason. Cue an ongoing mystery and lots of creepy goings on!

43. Housebound (2014)

Not Rated | 107 min | Comedy, Horror, Mystery

A young woman is forced to return to her childhood home after being placed under house arrest, where she suspects that something evil may be lurking.

Director: Gerard Johnstone | Stars: Morgana O'Reilly , Rima Te Wiata , Glen-Paul Waru , Ross Harper

Votes: 37,205

A film with genuinely scary moments and a good sense of humour, also. A young woman is under house arrest, and when spooky things start happening she literally cannot get away - a great set up for some good thrills! There's a big twist ending, but you'll have to see it to find out what it is, I'm keeping shtum!

44. Paranormal Activity (2007)

R | 86 min | Horror, Mystery

After moving into a suburban home, a couple becomes increasingly disturbed by a nightly demonic presence.

Director: Oren Peli | Stars: Katie Featherston , Micah Sloat , Mark Fredrichs , Amber Armstrong

Votes: 253,348 | Gross: $107.92M

I'd say this is a bit overrated, but it was hugely influential and is a damn sight better than the sequels. If you don't mind a slow found footage ghost film where you don't see any ghosts, you may get something out of this - it does have a couple of pretty creepy moments.

45. Insidious (I) (2010)

PG-13 | 103 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

A family looks to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called The Further.

Director: James Wan | Stars: Patrick Wilson , Rose Byrne , Ty Simpkins , Lin Shaye

Votes: 334,396 | Gross: $54.01M

Despite an overabundance of jump scares, some oddly out of place comic characters and a monster that looks like Darth Maul, this film is, surprisingly, still worth watching. Some really good moments and a fast pace help keep you engaged.

46. 1408 (2007)

PG-13 | 104 min | Fantasy, Horror, Mystery

A man who specialises in debunking paranormal occurrences checks into the fabled room 1408 in the Dolphin Hotel. Soon after settling in, he confronts genuine terror.

Director: Mikael Håfström | Stars: John Cusack , Samuel L. Jackson , Mary McCormack , Tony Shalhoub

Votes: 290,157 | Gross: $71.99M

Flawed, but very imaginative and original. If you don't go in expecting a classic you'll probably have a good time with this.

47. The Canal (2014)

Not Rated | 92 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

A film archivist finds his sanity crumbling after he is given an old 16mm film reel with footage from a horrific murder that occurred in the early 1900's.

Director: Ivan Kavanagh | Stars: Rupert Evans , Antonia Campbell-Hughes , Hannah Hoekstra , Kelly Byrne

Votes: 14,761

Pretty slow moving, but well worth a watch if you like a good mystery.

48. Burnt Offerings (1976)

PG | 116 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

A family moves into a large old mansion in the countryside which seems to have a mysterious and sinister power over its new residents.

Director: Dan Curtis | Stars: Karen Black , Oliver Reed , Burgess Meredith , Eileen Heckart

Votes: 13,360

I wasn't as keen on this as most ghost-film aficionados, but I still liked it and would gladly recommend it. Good story and a great cast. Similar to The Shining.

49. The Amityville Horror (1979)

R | 117 min | Horror

Newlyweds and their three children move into a large house where a mass murder was committed. They start to experience strange, inexplicable manifestations which have strong effects on everyone living in or visiting the house.

Director: Stuart Rosenberg | Stars: James Brolin , Margot Kidder , Rod Steiger , Don Stroud

Votes: 43,800 | Gross: $86.43M

A solid classic. While the 2005 remake is pretty decent, it doesn't do much to improve on the original, if anything the heavy 70's look helps this version feel like a far more authentic telling of the Amityville story. Essential viewing for any lover of spooky ghost movies. If you really don't like older horror films then the 2005 remake is decent enough.

50. Thir13en Ghosts (2001)

R | 91 min | Fantasy, Horror

When Cyrus Kriticos, a very rich collector of unique things, dies, he leaves his house, fortune, and his prized collection of ghosts.

Director: Steve Beck | Stars: Tony Shalhoub , Shannon Elizabeth , Embeth Davidtz , Matthew Lillard

Votes: 92,696 | Gross: $41.87M

Cheesy beyond belief, very much a junk food kinda ghost flick. Switch your brain off and appreciate the cool ghost designs. A carnival ghost train kinda film, very much in the vein of 1999's House On Haunted Hill, so if you enjoyed that then give this a go. Delicious, trashy popcorn fodder.

Recap #150: Goosebumps #10: The Ghost Next Door by R.L. Stine

Title: Goosebumps – The Ghost Next Door

Author: R.L. Stine

Cover Artist: Tim Jacobus

Tagline: There’s a strange new kid on the block…

Summary: “How Come I’ve Never Seen You Before?”

Hannah’s neighborhood has gotten a little-weird. Ever since that new boy moved in next door.

But when did he move in? Wasn’t the house empty when Hannah went to sleep the night before? Why does it still look so deserted?

Shes not getting any answers from her new neighbor. He just keeps disappearing in the oddest ways. And he’s so pale…

Is Hannah being haunted by…

…the ghost next door???

[ Wing: Adorable summary. ]

Initial Thoughts

Now we’ve reached one of the true classics of the original series, the tenth of the first twenty books back when Stine was still establishing the trends and style of the franchise. For those who’ve read the early books, you know already a number of them had an atmosphere that hasn’t been properly revisited in any of the later works. They seemed to carry with them a sense of real despair and fear before Stine began to realize the books might’ve been too scary for kids. [ Wing: Which is a shame. Kids are better at scary things than adults want to give them credit for handling. ] I think he’s mentioned if he got the chance he’d rewrite “Welcome to Dead House” to make it funnier. Which I hope he never does.

This one’s got a twist in it most people might already be familiar with considering it was adapted for the trading card series, the TV show, as well as the movie. Well, I’m not spoiling it for new readers just yet, and since I don’t have any commissions related to this one I’m gonna be scanning the three trading cards depicting certain scenes. Luckily they were illustrated by Walter Velez, who provided some of the best artwork for the card series.

This is also going to be the last post in my series of discussions on my best friend’s death, and I feel like I dragged the discussion on for too long beyond “Magic Fire.” I’m sorry.

Hannah Fairchild woke up to discover her room was on fire. She was surrounded by crackling yellow flames burning away her most treasured belongings. The wallpaper, the closet, even the mirror had burned away. With nowhere to run, Hannah screamed…

And found she was looking out her window to discover it was another beautiful summer day. Hannah sighed, thankful to have awoken from such a terrifying nightmare. Unfortunately, it was one of those dreams that hung on the peripheral edge of your mind once you wake up; you can’t really remember everything that happened but the feelings are still there. [ Wing: Ugh, that is both a scary dream and a horrible feeling in real life, the way terrible dreams can linger. ] Hannah was glad her dreams were at the very least exciting, because this summer had been the most boring one of her life. All of her friends were away on vacation or at camp, which left Hannah stuck at home in the boring town of Greenwood Falls with no one to hang with but her parents and brothers.

The terror of her bad dream left Hannah feeling happy to be alive, so she excitedly got dressed in her usual Day-Glo colors (which her parents often teased her about) and went downstairs to breakfast. Her little brothers Herb and Bill were already annoying their mom by throwing a rubber ball back and forth over the kitchen table. Mrs. Fairchild was surprised to see Hannah in such a good mood, knowing how bored her daughter was and so was apologetic they couldn’t send her to camp like her friends. Hannah told her mom not to worry about it and didn’t mind her brothers being a couple of pests like they usually were. Hannah reminded the twins how scared they were the previous night when she told them those ghost stories in the backyard. Herb and Bill insist they weren’t scared before asking Hannah for some orange juice. She jokes the juice is 100% pulp, grossing the boys out. Hannah happily gets them apple juice and milk as they complain to their mom about her choice of orange juice, impressing Mrs. Fairchild with her good mood.

Hannah decided to spend the day going on a bike ride in an effort to beat the monotony. It’s still a beautiful, cloudless day and all the summer flowers are in bloom, so Hannah can enjoy the scenery. That’s when someone almost runs Hannah down with their bike!

Hannah gets knocked to the ground, looking up to see a pale, freckled boy with short orange hair, on a bike. The boy repeatedly apologizes to Hannah claiming he didn’t see her, which Hannah wonders how he couldn’t when she’s practically dressed like a neon crayon. [ Wing: She’s not wrong. That outfit sounds eye-searing. ] The boy didn’t know he was riding in Hannah’s yard since he didn’t know she lives next door to him. Hannah doesn’t believe he lives in the house next door since that house has been empty for years. In fact, she was sure it was empty the previous day, but the boy claims he’s lived in the house for a while. The boy introduces himself as Danny Anderson and explains he lives in the house with his mom. Before Hannah explains why Danny couldn’t possibly have lived in the house for that long, Bill calls from the house saying Herb stole his Game Boy. Hannah shouts back to get their mom to help and turns back to discover Danny’s gone.

Hannah spends the rest of the afternoon writing a letter to her friend Janey, who’s at camp. Hannah talks about how boring things have been and asking why she hasn’t heard from Janey in a while, even though they promised to write to each other every day. Hannah mentions the makeshift campfire she set up in the backyard the previous evening when she told her brothers those ghost stories and thinks she did a good job of scaring them. [ Wing: I want bonfires and ghost stories in my backyard. We need to move outside city limits. ] Hannah adds she’s got a new neighbor named Danny, even though she has no idea how he could’ve moved in without her noticing. Hannah caps off her letter reminding Janey of her promise to write back.

If I don’t hear from you, I hope you got poison ivy all over your body – especially in places you can’t scratch! Love, Hannah

Hannah heads into town to mail the letter, saying hi to her neighbor Mrs. Quilty and being rudely ignored. After dropping off her letter, Hannah hears a commotion in the alley behind the post office. She sees Danny and two boys she doesn’t recognize getting yelled at by Mr. Chesney, the postmaster. One of the boys, a tall kid, is comforting a dog that seems to be in pain. The tall kid is yelling at Chesney for throwing stones at his dog, while Chesney is ordering them not to loiter in the alley causing trouble. The tall kid threatens to tell his dad what Chesney did, but Chesney isn’t scared thinking the boys are trespassing on government property. He even promises to file a formal complaint that they’re rude and disrespectful before the boys run down the other end of the alley. Chesney stomps right past Hannah back into the post office. [ Wing: Fuck you, Chesney. I hope something bites off your face. ]

Hannah thinks to herself what an asshole Chesney is; he hates all the kids in Greenwood Falls, and they can’t stand him because he acts so superior since he’s a “Government” official. He’s always ordering some kid to stop doing SOMEthing, regardless if they were bothering him or not. Hannah recalls one Halloween her friends planned to spray paint his windows until they saw him standing on his front porch with a loaded shotgun. He knew the kids hated him, he just didn’t care.

Hannah can’t find Danny or his two friends, and with nothing else to do she heads home with an idea of watching “General Hospital.” On her way home down the shady, tree-lined avenue, Hannah is confronted by a stranger dressed in black. The figure is standing in the shadow of the trees, and Hannah is unable to make out his face as he beckons for Hannah to come closer. Hannah’s not even sure if someone really is there until he begins to call her name. The dark stranger extends its thin, branch-like arms and calls after Hannah over and over again as she begins to run away. Hannah runs down several blocks, horrified that this person knows her name when she finally stops demanding to know what this person wants… and realizes she’s all alone. Hannah looks around the nearby houses trying to figure out where the stranger disappeared to, and wonders if in her boredom she imagined the whole thing.

During dinnertime, Hannah mentions to her parents they’ve got a new neighbor, but neither Mr. or Mrs. Fairchild recall seeing someone move in recently. Hannah asks if they think that’s weird, but her parents are too busy keeping her brothers from killing each other. Hannah excuses herself from dinner and heads to her room, where she has a good view of the house next door and wonders which of the dark windows looks into Danny’s room.

Several days pass by, and Hannah’s boredom has become intolerable. Her friends have all forgotten her, and she had a hard time finding Danny again until she saw him hitting a tennis ball on the side of his house one afternoon. Hannah accidentally startles Danny as she says hi, before bringing up how she hasn’t seen him lately and recalling the incident with Mr. Chesney. Danny doesn’t understand what the problem was since they were only hanging out; Hannah tells him Chesney makes a big deal about everything. Danny explains he’s been spending his time with Alan and Fred, two friends from school. Turns out Danny goes to the same school Hannah does, Maple Avenue Middle School, and they’re both gonna be in eighth grade. Trouble is, Hannah doesn’t remember ever seeing Danny or his friends in their grade, and Danny hasn’t heard of Hannah’s friends. Hannah wonders how they couldn’t know the same classmates.

When Danny accidentally hits his tennis ball into the gutter, he gets a ladder from the garage to remove it. Hannah is still puzzled, especially when Danny practically disappears into the shadows under the house as he retrieves the ladder. The same way he disappeared the last time they spoke. Almost like a… ghost. As Danny climbs up to the gutter, Hannah is gripped with a sense of forebode and begs Danny to come down before he gets hurt. Danny tells her not to worry as he stands on the roof, reaching for the ball, but then he loses his balance. Danny falls! Hannah can’t look, but when she opens her eyes, he’s fine! Danny jokes his mom is always calling him “Danny ‘Daredevil’ Anderson,” but Hannah doesn’t think it’s funny. She asks if he does sick shit like that all the time, scaring people like that.

Mrs. Fairchild calls Hannah from the house, asking if she can watch her brothers while she runs some errands. Hannah heads back to her house, unable to stop thinking about how Danny fell. Before Mrs. Fairchild leaves, Hannah asks her mom if she saw Danny, but somehow her mom didn’t. Hannah can’t figure out how her mother couldn’t have seen him when her brothers ask if they can play Chutes And Ladders, and if they can cheat while doing so.

That night, Hannah sneaks over to Danny’s place thinking how the house always seems so dark, and for that matter she’s never seen anyone actually leave or enter. And the house is too silent. Hannah wonders if maybe Danny really IS a ghost, maybe she’s not making up stories to keep herself entertained. She heads towards the dark kitchen window and is startled to find Danny looking back at her. Behind him, Hannah can see a tall blonde woman, most likely his mom, setting the table for dinner. Danny asks if Hannah wants to join them, but Hannah feels too embarrassed and thinks Danny’s laughing at her as she returns home.

The next day, Hannah plans to follow Danny from a distance to figure out what his deal is. She wishes Janey was here to help her, thinking they’d be great spies together. Unfortunately for Hannah, she loses track of Danny when she reaches town. He’s not in the school playground and he’s not in the alley behind the post office again. Disappointed and kicking herself for being such a crappy spy, Hannah bikes back to her place when she realizes the shadowy stranger has returned. Hannah’s so terrified she can’t even move as the shadow reaches toward her. All she can make out is two glowing red eyes in the space where its face should be as it calls her name again. Hannah finally gains the willpower to break free from the shadow’s trance, but tumbles to the ground as her name is called over and over again. Hannah screams for the thing to leave her alone when she realizes the voice has changed and become more familiar. She looks up to see Danny standing over, looking worried for her sake. Danny helps her up asking what happened, because he didn’t see any shadow coming towards her. Hannah looks around and realizes it’s just her and Danny; the shadowy stranger has vanished again. Hannah pleads she definitely saw someone dressed in black coming towards her, but Danny assumes her eyes played a trick on her what with all the shadows in the area. Hannah’s not sure what to believe.

Yet again there’s no letter from Janey, but Hannah writes to her anyway because she needs to tell someone, ANYONE, about what’s been going on. Hannah sits outside underneath the tree in her yard and begins the letter by asking Janey how she could abandon her like this. She follows up by describing the weird stuff that’s been going on with Danny and lists the reasons why she thinks he’s a ghost.

  • He says he’s lived next door for a while but no one in her family saw anybody moving into the house, nor were they even aware of him until a few days ago.
  • He claims he’s going to their school but neither of them has ever heard of a “Danny Anderson” and she’s never heard of his friends Fred and Alan.
  • He’s constantly vanishing whenever she turns her back on him, and he somehow managed to land on his feet after falling off a roof.
  • She’s been followed by a strange black shadow, and the second time it happened when the shadow disappeared Danny was in its place.

Hannah realizes how ridiculous the letter sounds but begs Janey to believe her. And hopes she finally writes back or hopes something horrible happened to justify why she hasn’t heard from her yet.

I hope you were bitten by a snake and your entire body swelled up, and that’s why I haven’t heard from you. Otherwise, I’m going to KILL you when you get back! Really! Love, Hannah

Hannah wonders if maybe this letter is too stupid to send when Danny appears in front of her. He softly demands Hannah give him the letter, saying he can’t let her send it. He can’t let her tell people the truth about who he is. Hannah is horrified that she was right, that he IS a ghost, and finds herself wondering when and how Danny died. Danny continues to order her to hand over the letter, and he seems to grow brighter and brighter with the sun behind him. Hannah asks what Danny is going to do to her now that she knows, now that she’s…

Hannah looks up to see her brothers standing over her, explaining she was talking in her sleep and laughing at her. She’d fallen asleep while writing her letter, and now her back’s all stiff as she gets up. Picking up her letter, she thinks to herself that, sometimes, dreams can tell us things we’re not consciously aware of. She’s more determined than ever to reveal Danny’s secret.

Later the next evening, Hannah goes for a walk and wonders if Danny would like to get ice cream at Harder’s. Heading to the house next door, Hannah’s more relaxed knowing what she’s going to say as she sees a light coming from the kitchen window. Hannah knocks on the back door but no one answers. Confused, Hannah looks through the window again and can definitely see Mrs. Anderson sitting at the table and drinking from a mug. Hannah knocks on the window and calls Mrs. Anderson’s name several times, but the woman doesn’t hear Hannah at ALL. It’s like she’s not even there. Hannah slowly backs away from the window, believing Danny’s mother is a ghost as well. It makes some sense; if Danny’s a ghost, his mother would be too. Going back to her house, she tries to tell her parents what she’s learned but they’re too busy watching TV to listen to her. But why would they believe such a dumb thing anyway, Hannah thinks. [ Wing: Hannah’s family are the ghosts, right? ]

Hannah treks to Harder’s Ice Cream Parlor, thinking a snack will help calm her nerves. Of course Harder’s is practically the only place in town still open past 8, and Hannah’s overcome with a slight sense of dread from seeing how empty the town square is. She then feels the same premonition she felt when Danny was on the roof as she gets closer to the store. Things get exciting pretty quickly when Hannah is knocked over as she reaches the ice cream shop, watching as Danny and his friends run down the street and are chased by Mr. Harder. Harder demands they come back but he can’t keep up with the boys, too angry to notice Hannah as he heads back inside. Hannah can hear the store owner complaining to his wife about Danny and the other two stealing ice cream (as in, ordering and not paying).

Hannah attempts to follow Danny and his friends, and finds them huddled at a tall hedge near someone’s house. Alan and Fred are laughing their asses off, thinking of how angry Harder got when they ran away. Danny’s standing to the side, eating his ice cream in silence when the other two joke about how scared he was. Danny puts on a tough guy facade saying he was out the door first and they were so slow he figured he’d have to rescue them. Danny admits it was pretty fun, but thinks they shouldn’t be so reckless in the future. Alan tries to make Danny relax, saying it’s not like they killed someone. In fact, they should go back and get TWO scoops. Fred thinks that’s fucking hilarious. Danny suggests they get going when the boys are caught in a car’s headlights. The police!

Actually no it’s just some guy asking for directions.

Hannah’s glad it wasn’t the cops, but the boys have realized they’ve been standing in front of none other than Chesney’s house. They can tell from the hand carved swan mailbox perched in front. Alan and Fred joke about Chesney is soooo proud of his mailbox, but wonder who could possibly want to write to HIM? They start daring Danny to take the mailbox, reminding him he once said he’d never turn down a dare. They wanna see how strong Danny is, if he can pull the swan box off the pole. Hannah begins to approach the boys, that sense of dread returning, in order to stop Danny from getting into more trouble. Yet before she can get close enough, she’s enveloped in darkness. The shadow’s stepped between her and Danny, its red eyes glowing like bloody fires, and it begins to call Hannah’s name in that dry, crackly whisper. Hannah can even smell the shadow’s horrible breath, when the lights from another car wash over her and the shadow dissipates. Up ahead, Danny’s pulling on the mailbox when Mr. Chesney emerges from his house and furiously grabs Danny by the shoulders. In the process, Danny accidentally rips off one of the swan’s wings, distracting Chesney into letting Danny go. As Chesney picks up the broken wing, he screams at the boys if he sees them again he’s getting out his shotgun.

Hannah follows the boys as they run away from Chesney’s house, and like everything else that’s occurred Fred and Alan find it hilarious. Danny’s rightly scared Chesney really will pull his gun on them if they give him any more trouble, but Fred and Alan think he’s full of hot air. Like the “respected” postmaster of Greenwood Falls would dare shoot a bunch of innocent kids. In fact, Fred and Alan think they should indeed pay Chesney another visit. After all, he could’ve hurt Danny really bad the way he grabbed his shoulders. Danny’s not scared, are you Danny?

Danny decides to cut out now and wishes the guys a good night. Once he’s finally free of those two morons, Hannah approaches him and mentions she saw what they did. Danny plays off the shenanigans like it was no big deal, defending Alan and Fred. They’re not so bad, Hannah. As she walks alongside Danny back to his house, she finally remembers what happened earlier with his mom. Before she loses her nerve again, Hannah confronts Danny, telling him she knocked and banged on the door but his mom acted like she didn’t exist. She didn’t even react like she was trying to deliberately ignore Hannah. It was like Mrs. Anderson was in a world all her own. Danny seems hesitant as Hannah asks why his mom didn’t answer when she knocked, before he concedes to telling her the truth.

His mom’s deaf.

A couple of years back, Mrs. Anderson got a really bad infection in her ears. The doctors attempted to treat the infection, but by the time they acted it was too late and her hearing was severely impaired. Mrs. Anderson’s good at lip reading, but she doesn’t like telling people about her handicap because she doesn’t want to be pitied.

Hannah feels like absolute garbage for having jumped to such ridiculous conclusions, but makes a smart move by not mentioning she thought Danny and his mom were ghosts. She apologizes for having been rude and promises Danny his mom’s secret is safe with her. Returning home, Hannah still feels foolish. Ghosts. What a moron! Too bad the shadow’s waiting for her by the back door, and this time it manages to say more besides her name. The shadow starts warning Hannah, telling her to stay away. Stay away from Danny, that is. Hannah screams and before the shadow can do anything to her parents burst out of the house having heard her screaming. Hannah points to where the shadow was, but it’s gone. Mr. Fairchild searches the backyard with a flashlight, but doesn’t find any intruders and asks if they should call the police. Hannah tells her parents to forget about and wants to get to bed, but is still so spooked by her encounter she gets scared thinking the shadow really is in her room when it’s not.

In bed, Hannah goes over what she knows and starts thinking Danny lied about his mom being dead. The way the shadow was warning her about Danny makes Hannah believe he really is a ghost. But why is he next door, and are Alan and Fred ghosts as well if he hangs out with them? Is the shadow trying to stop her from proving Danny’s a ghost? Hannah’s thoughts about Danny and the shadow follow her into her dreams and she has another nightmare. Only this time, she’s standing by a fire in a dark cave when the black shadow approaches her.

The black figure, its red eyes glowing brighter than the fire, moved toward Hannah. Closer. And closer. And when the black figure came so close, close enough for Hannah to reach out and touch it, the shadow figure reached up with its sticklike arms and pulled itself apart. It reached up with its ebony hands and bonelike fingers, pulled away the darkness where its face should be – revealing Danny underneath. Danny, leering at her with glowing red eyes that burned into hers – until she woke up gasping for breath.

Looking at the early morning sky, Hannah doesn’t believe her dream. Danny can’t be the shadow, she thinks, but come next morning she finally asks him if he’s a ghost. While Danny’s kicking a soccer ball against the side of his house, he jokes of course he’s a ghost. Hannah insists she’s serious but Danny’s not really listening, talking about what happened the other night with Fred and Alan. Hannah joins him in his impromptu game, but continues asking him questions like if those two really do go to their school, or if they’re ghosts as well. Danny reveals Fred and Alan are actually older than him and will be going into ninth grade, confusing Hannah more. Ninth grade? How does she not know them, Hannah wonders. Then again, Danny asks how come THEY have never seen HER? He slips the two wanna go back to Chesney’s house for more “fun” when Hannah and Danny both dive for the ball. Danny trips and falls, so Hannah reaches down to pull hi-HOLY SHIT HER HANDS WENT THROUGH HIS CHEST!

Hannah reached to pull Danny up – and her hands went right through him!

(Just Passing Through)

It takes a moment before Danny notices what happened, and now Hannah thinks she’s confirmed it. Danny IS a ghost after all! Or is he? Because then Danny manages to put his entire hand through Hannah’s chest, and she doesn’t feel anything at all. Horrified, Danny backs away from Hannah before running into the relative safety of his house. Hannah realizes she got it all wrong, got it backwards.

“Danny’s not the ghost,” Hannah said out loud. “I finally know the truth. Danny’s not the ghost. I am! “

Hannah stumbles out of the yard, dazed and confused, not properly processing this revelation when she overhears Mrs. Quilty talking with a friend. The other woman mentions her friend was briefly interested in buying Hannah’s house, even though Hannah’s family lives there! Don’t they?

Mrs. Quilty says she can’t stand having an empty house on the block, and even though it’s been five years since the house burned down and was rebuilt no one’s lived in it. The woman’s not familiar with the story since it happened before she moved into town. Quilty explains the house burned down one night and the entire Fairchild family died in the blaze. The source of the destruction was a small campfire the three kids had built in the backyard that hadn’t been properly doused. Hannah mentioned she’d told her brothers some ghost stories in the backyard one evening. Around a campfire.

It was her.

The fire in her dream was real, and it happened because of her.

She’s the reason her family’s been dead for five years!

[ Wing: Goddamn, that is a horrific burden to carry. ]

It’s become much clearer to Hannah now. Why the days seem to meld together and why none of her friends have written to her all summer. Time has little meaning for ghosts.

Hannah runs back into her house looking for her parents and her brothers, but they’re gone. In fact, the entire house is empty. Hannah’s awareness has destroyed the illusion and all she’s left with is an empty home.

They’ve left me here. A ghost. A ghost all by myself. “I’ve got to talk to someone,” she said aloud. “Anyone!” She searched desperately for a telephone until she found a red one on the bare kitchen wall. Who can I call? Who? No one. I’m dead. I’ve been dead for five years.

Even the phone is dead too, and all Hannah can do is sink to the floor and cry.

Hannah wakes up, discovering it’s now nighttime but not sure if it’s even the same day. Her family is still gone, and all Hannah feels is the warning sense something bad will happen. She remembers Danny mentioned his friends were going back to Chesney’s house and fears what they might do. The minute Danny sees her trying to follow him, he screams at Hannah to leave him alone. Hannah begs Danny not to be scared of her, but it’s no use and he bikes away. Hannah’s still afraid for Danny, so she gets her bike (which, apparently, is still in the garage) and goes after him.

By the time Hannah gets to Chesney’s house, the boys have managed to successfully uproot the swan mailbox. Chesney doesn’t seem to be home; his car’s not in the driveway. Alan and Fred are congratulating each other when they start entertaining certain ideas. Hannah is still across the street and can’t hear what the boys are discussing as they huddle together on Chesney’s driveway, but wishes they would leave now that their dumb prank is over. She’s especially not thrilled when she realizes Alan’s struck a match. Oh crap.

Hannah tries to follow behind the boys just as they sneak directly into Chesney’s house through a window. Unfortunately, the window is too high up for Hannah to follow through and can only hear the boys moving around in the empty house. Hannah tries to scream as loud as she can for Danny and the two giggling idiots to get out before Chesney comes back, but chances are Danny would be the only one who can hear her. It’s then she notices orange-colored light coming out of the window, and Hannah can’t believe the boys are so stupid they’re turning on lights. But once the light becomes brighter and starts to turn yellow and red, Hannah recognizes THE MORONS STARTED A FIRE.

The shadow tries to stop Hannah from getting inside the house to rescue the boys, ordering her to leave and let Danny die.

(Mysterious Menace)

The shadow blocks Hannah from entering the house as Alan and Fred jump out of one of the widows. They’re sure as fuck ain’t laughing now and babble they didn’t mean to make such a big fire. The boys are horrified that Danny is still inside and he can’t get out, the fire’s grown out of control! Neither of them notice Hannah or the shadow and run to get help for Danny, not knowing Hannah needs help of her own. Hannah wrestles with the shadow and is shocked she’s able to grab hold of it, ripping away the darkness covering the face to find DANNY!

Shadow!Danny’s eyes grow bright red, and reveals to Hannah that he is Danny’s ghost.

“I am Danny’s ghost. When he dies in the fire, I will no longer be a shadow. I will be BORN – and Danny will go to the shadow world in my place!”

[ Wing: Wait what? ]

Hannah refuses to let that happen and fights back against Shadow!Danny, plunging herself through his black body and hoisting herself through one of the windows. Even as a ghost, Hannah can feel how hot the window sill has become. Hannah still hasn’t completely accepted that she’s dead, and must remind herself the fire and smoke can’t hurt her. Hannah searches through the burning living room, looking so much like her bedroom at the beginning of the book, and finds Danny huddled in a corner and surrounded by flames. Hannah takes one final moment to reassure herself she won’t be hurt before she marches through the flames and reaches for Danny’s hand. Danny can’t entirely see Hannah at first until she pleads with him they have to go. Danny is too frightened believing there’s nowhere to go, but Hannah pulls him up and drags him out through the fire.

They’re both blinded by the smoke but Hannah doesn’t give up, doesn’t let go of Danny, doesn’t stop moving until she’s gotten him through the front door. Out of the burning house, the two collapse to the ground and Hannah looks up to see the shadow’s demise.

There was the shadow figure near the house, twisting in flames. As the fire consumed it, it raised its dark arms toward the sky – and vanished without making a sound.

Exhausted and practically unconscious, Danny has enough strength left to thank Hannah for saving his life when everything becomes bright.

Hours later, after being examined and treated by paramedics, and driven home in an ambulance, Danny lay in bed, his mother tucking him and checking to see if he was okay. Mrs. Quilty was there to provide support for Mrs. Anderson. Danny is still slightly out of it and asks his mom what happened to Hannah. Danny explains he was saved by Hannah Fairchild, the girl next door. Mrs. Quilty thinks Danny is delirious, explaining to his mother that the Fairchilds died five years ago. Danny is getting upset, exclaiming Hannah’s his friend and he wants to know where she is.

No one knows Hannah is standing in the doorway to Danny’s room, happy he’s alive and believing the reason she came back after five years was to save him from dying the way she had. Hannah’s vision begins to fade as she hears the sweet sound of her mom’s voice, telling her it’s time to come home. The room was fading, no, the Earth was fading away before Hannah’s eyes. The only thing she could still see in the darkness as she floated away was Danny’s face.

“I can see him, Mom,” she said excitedly, brushing the tears off her cheeks. “I can see Danny. In his room. But the light is getting faint. So faint.” “Hannah, come back. Come back to us,” her mother whispered, calling her home. “Danny – remember me!” Hannah cried, as Danny’s face appeared clearly in the misty gray. Could he hear her? Could he hear her calling to him? She hoped so.

Final Thoughts

Let’s get this out of the way and assume most of you already knew the twist of Hannah being the ghost and not Danny, that the fire dream at the beginning wasn’t a dream but her dying. [ Wing: I didn’t get it there, obviously, but did get it eventually. Somehow, I’ve never been spoiled for this. ] This is one of the more famous entries in the series for a reason, and the twist was spoiled in the movie when they used Hannah as “Hannah Stine,” R.L.’s supposed daughter pulled out of the books because he didn’t have kids (which isn’t true in real life).

The TV show adapted this a two-part episode, where the first half ends with Hannah realizing she’s a ghost. The Shadow Spirit gets more screentime where he teaches Hannah how to do things as a ghost, before Hannah realizes there were too many times she’d saved Danny from a number of suspicious accidents. The Shadow Spirit was actively trying to murder Danny to take his place in the world, since he’s not actually a ghost just yet. Danny was trapped in the house when the fire started and passed out. Hannah didn’t have enough energy to move him, but she WAS able to play a song on Chesney’s piano and alerted the man to Danny’s presence so he could save him. Danny was at least able to say “Thank you” to Hannah before it ended.

As a side note, in the TV show his mother was shown using sign language and Danny knew it as well.

I’m not entirely sure what the source of the mythology is, but I’m certain I’ve heard of tales involving proto-spirits, nonliving entities that swap places with people when they die. Sort of like doppelgangers.

This is truly one of the saddest stories in the entire series, and as stupid as it sounds I’m tearing up a little right now thinking about it. There’s that feeling of emptiness and loneliness Hannah suffers from, fearing her friends have abandoned her only to realize they’ve all moved on and she doesn’t have a life anymore. And I’m not just talking about Hannah’s situation. Danny’s life seems to be a pretty sad one as well. His mother’s handicapped and there’s absolutely no mention of his dad, and he doesn’t seem to have any real friends except Alan and Fred. He tries too hard to please those two dipshits and he’s clearly worried about making them think he’s a loser because they’re the only friends he has. Not to mention he’s probably going to be in a lot of trouble for the fire.

[ Wing: I don’t think it sounds stupid. It’s a sad story and Hannah is a compelling, interesting character. I empathised with her a lot from the beginning, and her horror over figuring out what she did and what she is was heartbreaking, especially when she came back to an empty home because she broke the illusion. It’s sad. ]

Jude on April’s recaps

I have to explain to you guys something about this month and why I’m doing my recaps in this manner.

On April 1st 2016, 10:55 AM, my best friend, Patricia J. Thompson, died. She was a writer and retired professor of women’s studies. She considered herself a Hestian Feminist and had constructed a Hestian/Hermean system on public/private thinking. She was the daughter of famed Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky, but spent decades fighting to have her place as his daughter officially recognized.

Despite the massive gap between our ages, Pat was one of the closet friends I’ve ever had in my life. I met her my first semester at Lehman College when I enrolled in her Family Relationships course. We instantly became friends because I was the only person in her class who knew who the Greek goddess Hestia was. Pat became my friend during a very horrible period in my life and her classroom gave me a space to take about my problems at home, plus several other traumatic situations I never really talked about before I entered therapy. I enjoyed hanging out with her before and after classes, just talking about anything. When I took her last course before she retired, Women In Antiquity, she repeatedly praised my final paper on Wonder Woman as one of the best things she ever read. Pat was one of the only people I’ve felt comfortable being alone with and I’d visit her at her apartment in Manhattan, although with my anxiety I didn’t hang out for that long. Still, she cared about me so much she considered me an adopted grandson and frequently called me such. But, really, she felt like more of a mother to me than my birth mother has been.

You guys think I’m putting her on a pedestal because she was my friend, but I’m not. She was truly one of the most loving, kindest, caring people I’ve known. Even my horrible parents and my awful sibling liked her. Hell, my sibling cried after meeting her, exclaiming Pat had treated them so kindly. It still makes me cry thinking about it. Pat was always supportive of who I was and she made me feel like the things I had to say were worth saying and believing. She believed in me as a student, writer, and human being. The only time she ever got mad at me was after my suicide attempt in 2013. She… meant so much to me.

I, I can’t, you guys can’t comprehend what it was like for me to learn she died. It felt like such a horrible April Fool’s joke when I got to the hospital and learned her time of death, which was around the same time I’d left the house to visit her. April Fool’s, she was already dead by the time I left to see her! That month was a nightmare for me. I’d scared more than a few people into thinking I was going to kill myself even though I had no intention to. It wouldn’t have made a difference. Thinking about her death and how she died still makes me sad and angry I just want to, to, UGGGGH it’s so frustrating for me! And knowing she’s dead while so many other people out there keep making the world a horrible place I wanna scream and break stuff and, damn it!

So, look, it’s been two years since she died and I’m not over it. I thought maybe I could do some exploring on my feelings through the posts with this month and the books I’m reviewing. I’m not gonna pretend I’m magically gonna be over Pat’s death come May, but it’s better than doing nothing but stewing in my regrets.

Jude’s analysis

Pat often shared with me her beliefs on what would happen to her when she died. She was never really scared about dying, or maybe she was, I don’t know. It was never really a topic I wanted to discuss with her. She didn’t believe that much in Heaven or Hell, but what she did believe was that she would become part of the energy of the universe and she would be all around when it was eventually her time. I think maybe she said that to comfort me.

I’ve had such a hard time excepting her death because, despite what she said I, I, I can’t feel her. I can’t feel that she’s here in some form. I can’t feel her energy like she always said. Late at night when I go for walks, or when I’m in bed and still awake, I’d stretch out my hand in the open air or on the bed. I’d hold it out and I’d pray and wish to feel something, anything, to feel the slightest hint of her energy to let me know she’s there.

I never do, even though I’d give anything to feel her presence.

Are you there Pat? Have you been there at all since you died, at least some small part of you? I don’t mean to be greedy because I know there are other people you should be spending your time with, but I wish I knew where your energy went. People have told me it’s there when I’m focusing on my writing and actually doing it like she wanted me to, but I don’t believe it because I still don’t feel her.

Does this book give me a shred of hope there is indeed an afterlife out there, and in some way she can see me and watch over me? Maybe. I hope at the very least if there is some part of her still out there, she knows how much I love her and miss her, and how sorry I am I didn’t live up to her expectations.

Guys thank for you allowing me the time this month to attempt at analyzing my deeper rooted feelings about what happened to Pat. I originally had something written during an episode of depression, but I realize that wasn’t appropriate and I was worried it would give everyone the wrong idea.

I promise I’m gonna have something special for the site next month.
