My Thoughts:

I wouldn't say this is a favorite film of mine. But It is very well done and holds your interest with ease. And the film did seem to hold up well after all these years. Definetly a film that is worth the three hours you need to put in to watch it. I think everyone should see this at least once. Though I do think this one is a little over hyped. I can see how people could go into this one expecting much more. Though I must say that Brando was excellent in the part.

Patrick Swayze plays a ghost who teams with a psychic (Academy-Award® winner Whoopi Goldberg) to uncover the truth behind his murder — and to rescue his sweetheart (Demi Moore) from a similar fate.

My Thoughts:

It has been many years since I seen this one. Used to see it on cable all the time, I remembered enjoying it.... but I didn't remember much else storyline wise. It is a good film. A supernatural romance thriller. Whoopi Goldberg is a good addition for some much needed comedy to round it out. Well worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:

This one I enjoyed quite a bit. It has some stars I have become a fan of such as Karen Black and Burgess Meredith.

This movie has a good... but subtle atmosphere that works very well for this movie. definitely worth the watch.

My Thoughts:

A story of mind your own business and no peeking in neighbors windows. 

Seriously though this is definitely one of my favorite vampire movies. At least in my top 5. It has a great cast and a very good story that keeps your attention with ease. I loved Roddy McDowall in this one. And Amanda Bearst was very good and definitely cute here. The film has a good mixture of horror and comedy that just works. While I imagine most have, if you never seen this one I definitely recommend it. Well worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:

I must say... I really had a good time watching this film. It has great atmosphere and all the visuals was done beautifully. The ghosts in this film was done a bit differently then I have ever seen before... at first I wasn't sure how I felt about it but by the end of the film I decided yes it was different but I liked it. Also without giving too much away I must say this one is more then just a ghost film. And it is one that easily keeps your attention through-out the entire story. I feel comfortable recommending this one.

My Thoughts:

I haven't watched this one is quite some time. While the movie does have a little bit of a slow start... it definitely makes up for it with a great story. I never been much of a fan of Craig T. Nelson... but I did like JoBeth Williams as the mother. The haunting starts pretty mild... moving things around and such much to the enjoyment and entertainment of the mother. But before you know it things takes a turn for the worse. It has been so long since I watched this one that I forgot how good it is. I enjoyed every minute of watching this one again. If by any chance you have not seen this movie before... I highly recommend it.
