Still the best
21 February 2003 | by (Melbourne , Australia) – See all my reviews

Enjoyable and entertaining doco about alleged supernatural hi jinx around Tinsel Town.

Generally well put together and most definitely tongue in cheek although historically interesting. Gives both "True Believers" and the sceptics a chance to express their respective points of view.

Regarding the comedy song routine at the end,I didn't have a problem with that. In fact, I thought it was rather fun. I understand exactly what the producers were 'ábout'. It was just a little way of saying "Don't take EVERYTHING that you've just seen too Seriously".

Similar documentaries to do with the same subject followed after this one but "Hollywood Ghost Stories" is still the best.
