This is a ghoulish list of the best ghost parody movies! Parodies of ghost films tend to play with the tropes of horror films involving ghosts and haunted houses, and the pottery scene from Ghost with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. Funny ghost movie spoofs work since ghost/haunted house films tend to have little to no levity to them.
The seriousness of ghost films allows satirical ghost movies to take the wind out of their sails and allows the humor to not be beholden to those films, although that doesn’t mean they don’t play with ghost stereotypes. Mining humor from ghost films for parody or satire has proved to be a good idea as one of the most successful and popular ghost films ever made was created by some comedians. You might have heard of it; it’s called Ghostbusters and it’s listed on most lists of best ghost movies ever made. You will also find several famous actors on this list like Michael J. Fox in The Frighteners which was directed by Peter Jackson. There is also the Abbott and Costello movie Hold That Ghost on this list.
So, pass through to the other side with this list of top ghost parody films and share it with your friends and re-rank it to your liking. If you see a film missing from the list, feel free to add it!
