Child dressed as a ghost

Episode 12: Ghosts are NOT horror

In this year’s Halloween episode, Dave throws out the theory that “Ghosts are NOT horror”, and challenges Nick and Flip to prove or disprove it.

We discuss ghosts with unfinished business, ghosts with curses, Japanese ghosts specifically, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. So, what is your take on ghosts as horror?

That’s almost tautological: the non-horror ghost movies are not horror.

Ghostbusters is the outlier because the only ghost is in the title.
