Classic Horror on Video

- Ghosts & Haunted Houses/Castles -
by Joseph Parra

Some days, you just feel like a shadow of yourself - and you know, deep down, that you don't stand a ghost of a chance to get anything done. On other days, if the spirit is willing, things don't seem so grave. Which is just my way of saying that this month I'll be looking at "hauntings" on home video.

As always, I've designated each video with my opinion of whether it's good (G) or bad (B). If you want to check out my decision on any particular film, all you have to do is scare up a copy at your local video store!
