Critic Reviews for Ghost
Audience reviews for ghost.
Iconic and heartwarming, this romantic thriller film delivers strong performances and memorable sequences despite an occasional lack of sophistication in the production.
"Ghost" is one of those films that is filmmaking at its most effective: It is uncomplicated, entertaining and engrossing with surprisingly good performances. And while many may scoff at the film as pure fluff, their scoffs unfairly overlook "Ghost"'s amazing balance of drama, comedy and action - a feat that is very hard to achieve in films. "Ghost" is smart enough to work off a very uncomplicated script. The plot is very basic and doesn't try to fool you with too many twists and turns - keeping the twists to just one very effective one at the film's climax. This allows the viewer to just engross themselves into the lives of the characters without having too much to figure out. You become invested in the central relationship. The performances work. "Ghost" takes advantage of Whoopi Goldberg at her best and she plays Oda Mae Brown with a gusto that makes her irresistible. She carries the film's comedy squarely on her shoulder but doesn't venture into cartoonish territory allowing Oda Mae's journey to be just as important to the viewer as Sam and Molly's. Speaking of Molly Jensen and her doomed lover Sam Wheat (the titular Ghost), they are played with uncomplicated effectiveness by star-on-the-rise Demi Moore and hot-after-"Dirty Dancing" Patrick Swayze. She cries. He swoons. And Swayze proves to have just as much chemistry with Goldberg as he does with Moore. While Goldberg got the Academy Award and Moore became an A-lister, Swayze is the one that anchors the film. Jerry Zucker assembles this film amazingly well. He keeps it simple, he knows that when a scene is meant to make you swoon he puts it on overdrive (the use of "Unchained Melody" in the pottery scene is brilliant). When the scene is meant to make you laugh he doesn't get in the way of the joke - nothing else happens. When he wants you to feel Molly's sadness, a major close up of her crying face and falling tears is in frame. Zucker guides the movie effectively. "Ghost" is an underrated gem. Not the most substantive film, but so what? It's funny, it's sad, it's romantic, it's thrilling. Just what a pure Hollywood film needs to be. Nothing more, nothing less.
I only thought this was okay when I saw it as a kid, but now that I'm older, more seasoned in film criticism, and less ironically embracing of supernatural melodrama, I can truly appreciate Ghost for the stylish, thrilling, Academy Award-winning tearjerker it is. If you don't wanna throw some pots after watching this, you're dead to me.
A very heartwarming, charming and smart movie, with a flawless funny script, original and great special effects, and with powerful performances. This movie literally showcases the whole cast, Patrick Swayze was great, Demi Moore was fascinating, Whoopi Goldberg was just plain awesome, if there is someone that can make you laugh your pants out, its Whoopi Goldberg, she had that comedic and dramatic power and she definitely pulled it off, and that gained her an Oscar. And I like how the story says that if you die good, you go to heaven or you stay for a while in the real world, and the people who die bad go directly to hell, and they never come back. And when that is displayed in the screen on how they go to hell is terrifying. Another element I like is how the dead who are still in the world can walk through anything, even move things, if they really concentrate, and it gives you that feeling, that when something moves alone, its a spirit thats still in Earth. All I can say is that Ghost was fantastic, it showcases its cast, its original, its very funny, and says things that are very true, and I was glad I saw this movie.

The true story of the haunting of the queen mary's ghost ship.
Haunting of Queen Mary is set (and filmed) aboard the haunted RMS Queen Mary, with many of the film's ghosts drawn from real passenger experiences.
- The 2023 film "Haunting of Queen Mary" explores the terrifying history of the real-world RMS Queen Mary, a haunted ship with a thrilling past.
- The film was shot on location on the actual ocean liner, adding an authentic touch to the spine-tingling narrative that spans two different time periods.
- The Queen Mary has a history of mysterious deaths and paranormal activity, attracting paranormal investigators and ghost enthusiasts. Visitors can take haunted tours or stay in the infamous Room B340.
The 2023 film Haunting of Queen Mary dives into the horrors of the real-world RMS Queen Mary, with a great many of the included ghost stories coming from the experiences of guests upon the legendary " Most Haunted Ship in America ." Now a hotel experience in California, the retired British ocean liner has a thrilling history that has long captivated ghost enthusiasts and paranormal investigators. From the RMS Queen Mary's extravagance to its immense number of accidental deaths, it's the perfect setting for a thrilling horror movie.
Not only is Haunting of the Queen Mary (directed by Dracula Untold director Gary Shore ) set on the actual ocean liner but it was filmed there as well. This adds an exhilarating level of authenticity to the film, which jumps back and forth between two time periods aboard the ship. First, a family of the 1930s believed they were in for a voyage of rare extravagance but ended up on a cruise of horrors instead. Then, a modern family climbs aboard the ship and finds themselves disturbingly connected to the Queen Mary's horrible past. Beyond this spine-tingling narrative, however, lies the actual ship, which is said to be just as eerie.

The RMS Queen Mary's History: Cruises, WWII & Hotel Uses Explained
The RMS Queen Mary was built at the height of ocean travel extravagance. According to the Queen Mary's official website , construction began for the ship in 1930 in Clydebank, Scotland, six years before it would take its maiden voyage from Southampton, England, in 1936. The massive ocean liner boasted five dining areas and lounges, two cocktail bars with swimming pools, a ballroom, and a hospital. The Queen Mary was the pinnacle of luxury travel and only transported the elite, from movie stars and singers to political figures like Winston Churchhill. Throughout its years as a cruise ship, it transported some 2.2 million passengers.
During World War II, England was in desperate need of ships, so the Queen Mary was temporarily turned into a transport ship for some 810,000 military personnel. It was stripped of all its luxury, painted grey, and dubbed " The Grey Ghost ." After the war's end, however, the ship was restored to her former glory and transported high-class passengers between England and the United States for several more decades. However, when air travel grew in popularity, the need for a ship like the Queen Mary was lessened. She took her final voyage on December 9, 1967, and has called the coast of Southern California her home ever since. Now, the Queen Mary is a floating Hotel and Event Venue.
Dozens Of People Have Reportedly Died On The RMS Queen Mary
Throughout the various stages of its history, the Queen Mary has gained a reputation for the mysterious number of deaths that have happened within its walls. In less than 100 years, 16 crew members and 41 passengers have died onboard (via Houston Maritime ). Though high numbers like this would typically be associated with some massive-scale accident, most of these have been listed in the ship's logs as being from " natural causes." However, there have been instances of terrible accidents as well. An example of this is the ship's mechanic, who was crushed by a door during a routine emergency evacuation, and a young girl, reportedly named Jacqueline Torin, who drowned in one of the ship's swimming pools.
Another significant accident involving the Queen Mary took place during World War II. The ocean liner, filled with soldiers, accidentally crashed into its escort ship, the HMS Curacoa, and though everyone aboard Queen Mary survived, the Curacoa lost 239 souls. This is why, among the many hauntings reported on the iconic ship since the 1960s, sightings of soldiers are among the most common—but these are far from the only alleged ghost sightings on the Queen Mary.
Is The Queen Mary Haunted? Real Claims & Paranormal Investigations Explained
The RMS Queen Mary has welcomed guests to stay on board for decades, advertising luxury and a rare opportunity to be immersed in history. During this time, hundreds of passengers have stayed onboard, with many reporting a lot of strange goings on within the rooms, pools, and vintage dining rooms. The engine room in which the Queen Mary mechanic was crushed to death is said to be frequented by a man wearing overalls who asks who has seen his wrench before disappearing, with the occasional sound of screams of pain heard in the vicinity.
Other typical reports include the sounds of a young girl crying near the pool, thought to be little Jacqueline Torin's ghost, and the apparition of a man named John Henry, whose body is said to have been discovered in the boiler room. Still, it's difficult to say whether these are the result of real spirits of the active imaginations of passengers. To determine whether the ship was really haunted, the Queen Mary's management hired famed paranormal investigator Christopher Chacon, who came aboard in the 1990s to test the ship in its entirety.
According to Dread Central , this investigation spanned 18 months and involved a variety of state-of-the-art instruments and the help of a team of scientists, including physicists, medical doctors, and chemists. After the investigation, Chacon stated that he determined that the Queen Mary averaged three " events" per hour, with about 60 percent of these resulting from explainable factors. This leaves about 40 percent to be considered anomalous.
Years later, Queen Mary's paranormal activity seems not to have lessened, with the filming crew for Haunting of Queen Mary reporting several spooky instances while filming on location. The film's producer, Brett Tomberlin, explained (via Press-Telegram ) that parts of the ship were under construction during filming, and they were forbidden from entering those areas. However, they were constantly being chastised by the ship's staff, who reported wet footprints in the closed rooms—though the crew were adamant they never trespassed. " I never saw anything, " Tomberlin said, " but I can definitely tell you I can understand why people say they’ve seen things or felt a presence. "
The Cursed B340 Room Explained (& How It Differs In The Movie)
The most haunted location on the Queen Mary is said to be room B340 (via Press-Telegram ). The room was originally three separate quarters when the ship was still transporting passengers, but when it was remade into a hotel, it was turned into a single suite. Shortly after the Queen Mary opened for business, guests began complaining of strange happenings with the room. Some noted feeling sick or dizzy immediately upon entering, while others reported voices, strange sounds, and even a brief glimpse of someone standing over their bed. According to Stephen Sowards, the hotel's general manager in 2018, the room had to be closed down.
Room B340 remained closed for 30 years, but in the 2010s, it was renovated and reopened for guests. The newly designed room steered entirely into the suite's haunted claim, including an Ouija board, tarot cards, and a crystal ball as part of its furnishing. Additionally, there is an inscription on the bathroom wall explaining how to summon " Bloody Mary " by chanting her name three times while facing the mirror. Still, these additions are more for fun. Aside from the creepy reports from guests, there is no proven history of murder in the room's past as Haunting of Queen Mary suggests.
Did Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers Really Travel On The Queen Mary?
Haunting of Queen Mary incorporated many of the commonly reported phenomena of the real-world ship. The tragically crushed mechanic and poor Jacqueline Torin both make an appearance, as well as other ghosts that various guests have seen during their stays. However, what of the living characters that are seen to have traveled on the Queen Mary during its heyday? During the 1938 flashbacks, legendary actors Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are seen to be among the passengers (played by Wesley Alfvin and Maddison Nixon, respectively), and their presence there is based, in part, on real history.
According to the Queen Mary's website , Fred Astaire did travel on the ship in the years following its maiden voyage, but there is no indication that Ginger Rogers was with him. This pair was likely added to the characters of Haunting of Queen Mary because of their roles in the 1937 film Shall We Dance , a romantic comedy that follows a pair who fall in love on a ship sailing from Paris to New York. Astaire and Ginger tap dance in this film just as in Haunting of Queen Mary . It's a clever connection between one of the ship's most notable passengers and another film featuring the luxuries of 1930s water travel.
The RMS Queen Mary Still Offers Tours In Real Life Today
It's difficult to say how much of the paranormal reports regarding the Queen Mary are real and how much is meant to promote both the Haunting of Queen Mary film and the iconic hotel, which is still running today. After all, it was the Queen Mary's staff that hired the paranormal investigator, and the majority of the haunting information available online is directly related to the business itself. Ghost enthusiasts can purchase a ticket to haunted tours aboard the historical ship or even pay to stay in the harrowing stateroom B340 and see for themselves. Regardless, movies like Haunting of Queen Mary prove that such horrors are all about what people believe.

Despite turning 70 last year and being about to hit the milestone of 100 films with the upcoming release of neo-noir crime thriller Marlowe , Liam Neeson isn’t even trying to slow down.
The Hollywood Reporter can reveal that the Irish star will take the lead in The Riker’s Ghost , reuniting him with his Marlowe director Neil Jordan ( The Crying Game , Interview with a Vampire ).
Afm: despite strike slowdown, market boasts new projects with james mcavoy, naomie harris, guy pearce, afm flashback: 'the last emperor' ruled as a prestige groundbreaker.
Written by Sean O’Keefe ( Spenser Confidential ), Brian Rudnick ( Dungeons & Dragons) and Jordan, The Riker’s Ghost will see Neeson play a convict set for release from prison who, when his lawyer is kidnapped, is forced to break out a terrorist. Principal photography is set to commence principal photography from September 2023.
“This is a unique take on the prison escape,” said Jordan. “ A bare knuckle ride from incarceration to freedom, by someone who just wants to finish his term. The reluctant escapee will be played by Liam Neeson, and I can’t wait to explore this character with him.”
The Riker’s Ghost also marks a reunion between Neeson and the film’s producers, Alan Moloney of Parallel Film and Steve Richards of Endurance Media. Moloney produced Marlowe , while Richards has produced a number of Neeson’s titles, including the action thriller Non-Stop , which made over $222.8 million in the global box office, and mystery-thriller Unknown , which made $136.1 million, among others. Jake Katofsky and Susan Mullen will co-produce The Riker’s Ghost with Rupert Wyatt also serving as producer. In addition to producing, Richards’ Endurance will also finance.
“I am thrilled to be joining forces again with Neil and Liam,” said Moloney. “We have put together an elite team to support Neil’s scripted and directorial vision. This one will have you on the edge of your seat.”
Neeson — whose films have grossed $7 billion worldwide in total — is represented by Chris Andrews at CAA.

Based on Oscar Wilde 's short story of the same title, the movie follows the titular ghost as he recruits a brave young girl, Virginia Otis, to free him from an eternal curse. Promising comedy and kid-friendly spookiness in equal measure, The Canterville Ghost looks to be a great Halloween watch for people of all ages. Keep reading to find out everything we know so far about The Canterville Ghost .
Following its release in the United Kingdom and Ireland on September 22, 2023, The Canterville Ghost will be released theatrically across the United States on October 31, 2023 - right in time for a Halloween family movie night. Regarding when and where The Canterville Ghost will be available to stream, it was recently reported that the movie is set for a "strategic rollout across multiple platforms" . The Canterville Ghost's United States distributors - Blue Fox Entertainment and Shout! Studios - leads us to speculate that the movie will likely be available on Prime Video or Apple TV+ when the time comes, joining a vast collection of Blue Fox movies on these platforms.
Set to hit screens this fall, The Canterville Ghost is an animated comedy perfect for those wanting to indulge in the upcoming spooky season without the scares. The movie centers on the quirky ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville, cursed to roam his sprawling castle for centuries. To free himself from his endless boredom, Canterville must find a courageous human willing to perform a brave deed. Cue Virginia Otis, a curious and unshakable American who moves into the castle with her family. When Canterville fails to scare the Otises away, he's pleased to realize that Virginia could be the key to his long-awaited freedom. Together, the unlikely pair must outwit The Ghost Catcher and The Reverend to bring peace to the household once and for all.
Signature Entertainment released a trailer for The Canterville Ghost on their official YouTube channel in August 2023. Among the hilarious collection of scenes, it's revealed that every previous owner of the Canterville castle was scared away by the titular ghost. However, the new owners Mr. and Mrs. Otis aren't phased by this news and vow that they're "here to stay" - to the disappointment of their teenage daughter Virginia, who admittedly hates her strange new home. This all changes when Virginia discovers the spirit of Sir Canterville is never far away, and comes to learn that her new adventure might be more fun than she first expected. Spooky, chaotic, and fun, it seems The Canterville Ghost might just cement itself as one of the best family-friendly Halloween movies of 2023.
The Canterville Ghost is adapted for the screen from the legendary poet and playwright Oscar Wilde's children's short story of the same title. First published in the British literary magazine The Court and Society Review in 1887, The Canterville Ghost has since been adapted into movie, television, and radio format several times. The first of these movies was a Hollywood blockbuster in 1944, starring Charles Laughton in the title role. Following this came a Soviet animated movie in 1970, a Bollywood movie in 2008, and a French-Belgian movie in 2016. 2023's The Canterville Ghost began production over a decade ago, with a first look revealed in 2014 and an initial 2016 release date planned. The movie was subject to unprecedented delays, but fans will finally see it join an impressive legacy this fall.

The Ghost trailer: Nagarjuna’s action flick seems to be inspired by Taken
The ghost stars nagarjuna, sonal chauhan, gul panag and anikha surendran. the film is due in cinemas on october 5..
Telugu actor Mahesh Babu on Thursday unveiled the trailer of the upcoming Telugu movie The Ghost , starring Nagarjuna in the lead role.
“Glad to launch the intense & gripping trailer of #TheGhost! Wishing @iamnagarjuna and the entire team all the very best!,” tweeted Mahesh, while sharing the trailer.
“Hey @urstrulyMahesh!! I was so happy 29 years ago when your father SuperStar Krishna Garu joined me for the film Varasudu!! Why don’t we complete the circle,” Nagarjuna said in response to Mahesh Babu ’s gesture.
It seems that Indian filmmakers have been bitten by the ‘Ghost’ bug. Every other film that’s coming out seemingly has a ‘Ghost’ character in it. It is fast evolving into a sub-genre in itself. The latest to join the bandwagon is Nagarjuna.
In the trailer, Nagarjuna’s Vikram, who seems to be a high-ranking government agent, mentions that he has had a close brush with death several times, but that didn’t stop him. Perhaps, that’s the reason he’s called The Ghost. He keeps coming back from the dead. This time, however, he seems to be caught in the middle of an emotional pickle. It’s safe to assume that someone close to him has been kidnapped by a high-profile crime syndicate. And now it falls on the shoulders of Vikram to secure the freedom of a young woman from the clutches of merciless criminals. We are looking at you Taken.
And that sets the stage for Vikram to go on a rescue mission with all guns blazing and cutting through all the bad men with a take-no-prisoners vigour. Given that we are kind of familiar with the plot and the drama that comes with such a situation, it remains to be seen, how director-writer Praveen Sattaru has planned to surprise us.
The film also stars Sonal Chauhan, Gul Panag and Anikha Surendran. It is due in cinemas on October 5.

Marvel's Halloween trailer might be hiding a link to Ghost Rider

Marvel fans are convinced a new Halloween trailer is teasing a hellish MCU newcomer.
The trailer, which was posted by the Marvel Studios account on Twitter, reels off a series of spine-tingling and terrifying moments from MCU’s past. They include the Sam Raimi-directed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness , the one-shot special Werewolf by Night , and even a ghostly Miss Minutes terrorizing the World’s Fair in Chicago during the most recent episode of Loki season 2 .
So far, so spooky. Wait until the end, however, and you’ll see an errant chain fling its way across the screen. This is likely no coincidence, either: the most notable Marvel character with a chain is Ghost Rider – and fans think this means he’s coming soon to the MCU.
"Not to be a geek but WAS THAT GHOST RIDER’S CHAIN AT THE END?!?!?!?" one calmly mentioned . Another said , "That chain in the end??? Ghost Rider for a special presentation."
As of yet, Ghost Rider – a mantle held by multiple people who are possessed by the Spirit of Vengeance or to do the bidding of demonic forces – hasn’t been introduced to the MCU. The chain, though, indicates that the likes of Johnny Blaze or Robbie Reyes could put the pedal to the metal very soon.
Ghost Rider himself has a curious on-screen history. The Johnny Blaze iteration of the character was first portrayed by Nicolas Cage in two films and later in Agents of SHIELD by Tom McComas. The latest version of the character, Robbie Reyes, was played by Gabriel Luna in the ABC series.
Maybe Ghost Rider will be revving his way to a cinema near you very soon. For more, check out our complete guide to Marvel Phase 5 , as well as how to watch the Marvel movies in order .

By Nikita Mahato
Dateline NBC ‘s upcoming episode will delve into Becky Bliefnick’s murder by her estranged husband, Timothy Bliefnick. The all-new episode titled “Ghost Rider” airs on the channel this Thursday, November 2, 2023, at 10 p.m. ET .
Earlier this year, in February, 41-year-old Illinois nurse Becky was shot 14 times in her own home. She had expressed concerns that if something happened to her, the estranged husband, Timothy, would be “the No. 1 person of interest.” The couple were reportedly going through a contentious divorce at the time.
According to People Magazine , Timothy Bliefnick, who once appeared in an episode of Family Feud, he stood trial in May 2023. A jury found him guilty of first-degree murder and home invasion, following which he was handed a life sentence.
Where is Becky Bliefnick’s killer Timothy Bliefnick now?
Timothy Bliefnick is currently serving a life sentence at the Menard Correctional Center, as per Illinois Department of Corrections. In May 2023, a jury convicted him of shooting his estranged wife Rebecca “Becky” Bliefnick 14 times. Judge Robert Adrian handed the convicted murderer a life sentence without parole in August 2023.
During his trial, prosecutors alleged that he killed Becky after seeing another man’s car parked outside her house on February 14, 2023. The 41-year-old’s sister also testified that she received an incriminating text message from her. It read, “If something ever happens to me, make sure the No. 1 person of interest is Tim [Timothy].”
According to Fox News , the former Family Feud contestant and his 42-year-old nurse wife were separated and going through a contentious divorce.

Prosecutors claimed that Timothy Bliefnick, who lived at least a mile away from Becky’s house, broke into her home through a second-story window and shot her 14 times at close range. The victim’s father found her dead body on the bathroom floor on February 23, 2023.
The outlet reported that the prosecution further alleged that the accused searched for ways to commit the crime on Google before executing the murder. He reportedly rode a bicycle to her house and forced open the window using a crowbar. Once inside, he shot her dead. Police arrested Timothy two weeks later, on March 13, 2023.
