The world is a scary place, and we are definitely afraid of dying. In fact the only thing worse is living, because then the immortal souls of the damned which have been cursed to life in an endless purgatory even when their physical bodies have expired can come and bother us, with all their wailing and tapering off to have no legs. Basically ghosts tell us that everything sucks because when you live you get haunted, and when you die you haunt. There’s no way of winning.

Why are we so obsessed with ghosts? Well, it’s probably got something to do with the ubiquity of ghost stories in Western culture. From the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall to the Amityville Horror, there are ghost stories that everybody knows and is rightfully spooked by. We shouldn’t restrict our terror to our own fair isles and states, »
