Ghosts ci porta dalle prime apparizioni del cinema antico, attraverso i fantasmi comici e tristi che tendevano a proliferare nei decenni successivi, prima di raggiungere gli spettri davvero agghiaccianti che abbondano nel cinema dal revival mondiale del cinema gotico alla fine degli anni Cinquanta.

Include recensioni di film significativi come The Innocents, The Woman in Black, Carnival of Souls, Poltergeist, Onibaba, The Orphanage, Sixth Sense e Ring; oltre a numerosi lungometraggi e interviste a registi chiave come Guillermo del Toro, David Lowery, Jack Clayton, Rose Glass e David Robert Mitchell.
