Ghost Movies

One thing Clay and I have been talking about is how we've never really fully explored the ghost-story aspect of volume of smoke. The entire play is, after all, a ghost story-- none of the various narrators are still alive, and they make no bones about telling us, the audience for that evening, their stories. Clay is also a horror movie lover par excellance (I'll even forgive his deep affection for Haute Tension)... So I asked Clay to send me a list of ghost movies he felt were essential.

I would second that seeing Session 9 is going to be essential to really delving into this production of the play. I think, anyway.

Here's the list:
Session 9
The Changeling
The Haunting (original: 1963 BW)
The Others
The Innocents (1961)
The Devil's Backbone

If you haven't's
Don't Look Now
The Shining
The Sixth Sense
The Ring (Japanese version)
Ju-on (Japanese version)
Dark Water (Japanese version)

High Tension is a fun movie.
