Top 13 Phantom Flicks

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, animals both domesticated and wild, today's theme is about the ghosts in the screen.

Top 13 Phantom Flicks

13. 13 Ghosts (2001) - A fitting number 13 ... I preferred the updated version to the 1960 version, but that's just me.

12 . Event Horizon - While the movie falls short of being a classic, the mesh between sci-fi and ghost story was well structured. If you go in thinking B movie, you'll probably like it.

11. 1408 - 1 + 4 + 0 + 8 = 13 ... and the room just so happens to be on what technically is the 13th floor. So, you know, the room's gonna have some problems. I rarely say this, but in this case, the movie was better than the short story.

10 . The Ring - Had I seen Ringu, I probably would agree that it is the superior version, but I haven't, and so I won't.

9. The Frighteners - I know what you're thinking: Michael J. Fox, probably be a Teen Wolf with ghosts. If you haven't seen it, then do yourself a favor and see it.

8. Beetlejuice - Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Who out there can listen to Banana Boat by Harry Belafonte and not think of this movie?

7. Amityville Horror (1979) - Even though the movie is more of a comedy today, it still holds a small place in my demonic heart. It was one of the first horror movies I ever saw.

6. The Haunting (1963) - Stick to the classic on this one. The 1999 remake was nothing more than a chance to capitalize on Liam Neeson after Phantom Menace.

5. The Sixth Sense - Has there ever been a quote from a horror movie more parodied than I see dead people?

4. Ghostbusters - C'mon, you all know it ... Who you gonna call?

3. House on Haunted Hill (1958) - Go for the original here. The 1999 remake is a mockery of the original Vincent Price classic.

2. The Shining - All work and no play makes Robert Gray a dull boy. All work and no play makes Robert Gray a dull boy. All work and no play makes Robert Gray a dull boy. All work and no play makes Robert Gray a dull boy.

1. Poltergeist - "Do not go into the light. Stop where you are. Turn away from it. Don't even look at it."

Later Fiends,
