Top Ghost Movies of All-Timeby davidcoverman | created - 08 Sep 2013 | updated - 25 Sep 2013 | Public
Having just done my top Horror Films I couldn't help but notice that I would like to make a sub genre of "Ghost Movies"... some Ghost movies are "scarier" than other thus they made my "Horror List" but there where several I wanted to include just because they're good stories.

I'm squeezing this one in because it always kind of freaked me out as a kid, and the idea of "is it a ghost" or is it "in someone's mind "etc.. fits this category perfectly. Although "a ghost" is never really a question ***Spoiler Alert*** considering the grandma's "game" right? ;-)
