I’m not sure how accurate I find this to be, and that could be contributed to this awesome hobby I have. I don’t do the whole “eek a ghost run for your life” thing. I don’t even know people who do. I’m sure they are out there, but as the article points out: real life and Hollywood differ greatly on ghosts from their appearance, to their attitudes, their abilities, etc.
To be fair, as the author states, you purchase a book or movie ticket to be scared, not bored. You want the fantasy of a vengeful ghost. If you want boring sign up for an investigation lol. I’m kidding!
