Six (6) must-watch ghost movies for a scary evening

Hello everyone!

There are only four days left till Halloween! After six (6) books that will get you in the mood for Halloween, today I will share six (6) must-watch ghost movies for a scary evening!

I watch all kinds of Halloween-related movies, from the spooky and scary to the comedic and family-oriented. I love Halloween and am also a horror fan; however, gory, slasher movies are not my favourite. Two of my favourite genres are psychological horror and supernatural horror, especially ghost movies!

There are so many must-watch ghost movies. Today I am happy to share six (6) of my personal favourites with you. With rural internet options, they’re easy to stream online.
