I know I have a penchant for older movies. It's probably because movies about ghosts in this day and age are too dang scary. Paranormal Activity anyone? Um, no thanks. I'd rather laugh and cry than sleep with the lights on. And Patrick Swayze was a mighty attractive ghost. Here's the trailer. Sorry for the sound quality. Darn you youtube!
My favorite part of this movie is Whoopi as Oda Mae Brown, a sketchy medium who discovers she has a real gift for communicating with the dead.
In Mary Roach's book "Spook," Mary goes to medium school and remains a skeptic. Hey, speaking of Mary Roach, she's going to be on my blog tomorrow for Writer Wednesday. I interviewed her this past weekend. I giggled. A lot. Be sure and check back tomorrow!
