Dialogue
Plot
You’ll be completely sucked in from the first scene of the framing story onward. That story is interrupted three times; one for each segment, and it’s relatively slow compared to your average horror anthology wraparound tale. First things first; the only obnoxious thing about this movie is its anxiogenic jump scares, and they kind of grow on you. Otherwise, Ghost Stories is nearly perfect.
All three stories share a common structure; they’re all about men, alone, who are being haunted by ghosts. The first one is about a security guard inspecting a former asylum. The second one is about a young man who hits a demonic creature with his car, in the woods, at night. The last one is about a widower dealing with memories of a disastrous pregnancy.
Films like these are the reason some of us are scared of ghosts, late at night, alone. This story will follow you in the shower and in your bed. If you never believed in ghosts, now is the time. Ghost Stories doesn’t take for granted that we’ve seen hundred of ghost stories. It’s shot the way people who claim they’ve seen ghosts describe them. It’s certainly not for the faint-hearted.
