Paranormal cinematic activity: ghost film studies

Latest update: April 27, 2010
 Publicity still for The Innocents (Jack Clayton, 1961). See an excerpt from this film in Nicolas Rapold and Matt Zoller Seitz's L Magazine video essay 'Bad Seeds: Creepy Kids on Film', embedded towards the foot of this entry

Film Studies For Free has gone and spooked itself, today, with its own scary persistence in compiling a list of links to openly accessible, online, scholarly articles, chapters and theses on international ghost film studies. Oh, and there are two related video essays lurking at the bottom to scare the scholarly bejesus out of you for good measure, too (added April 27) .

Like all the best posts at this blog (IOHO), the list below owes its hefty materiality to its connections with FSFF's author's own (hauntological) research, some of which, hopefully, will be directly shared with her fearless readers very shortly. So do please be a revenant, won't you?

    I'm doing media studies at uni and I came across your blog accidentally while surfing through other art/media/film blogs. And I must say this: your blog is a very comprehensive collection of very useful resources and it's really amazing to see someone releasing all that knowledge and information into the public domain for free. Really amazing! :D
    Thanks for your effort (I realize maintaining a blog like this requires certain sets of skills and you're really helping your readers like me gain from the articles etc you put up), I will continue reading your blog and also your archives from now on. :)

    Thanks for your nice comment. Appreciation is always much appreciated round these parts. But this blog can only exist because others are releasing their knowledge and information into the public domain for free. I just publicize it and link to it gratefully. Long live Open Access!

    Thanks again and good luck with your studies.
