A blessing from the other side
5 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A con job? Absolutely! But I defy you to find any film that manages to combine a trash can full of old stock footage with a meaningless, rambling narration and create something as unique and involving as this. Two parts hilarious and one part extremely unsettling, the Amazing World of Ghosts will take you to places you never knew you wanted to visit. My personal favourite moment: when the narrator gloomily intones that one of the reasons life-saving efforts were so important at the site of an earthquake was to reduce the number of ghosts that might be inflicted on the local community. I also love the faked anecdotes about "real-life" hauntings, including the U.S. commuter train where passengers were routinely slaughtered and decapitated by a vengeful ghost. Did you know that the Loch Ness monster tends to be seen where ghosts are already present? And how many times can you listen to the word "ectoplasm" in 90 minutes without cracking a smile?
