Still, surprises are in store as well. Also, I have to mention that I was very surprised at some of the special effects make-up. It was not very realistic at all and I have honestly seen better make-up in several very low-budget movies.
A very strange place to cut corners and not choose some of the best people. You can watch the trailer for Ghostland right here or continue reading our review below.
One cool mamma! This is one of those cases, where the director alone is reason enough to watch the movie. Within the first minutes, you know you made the right choice.
In fact, you might need to remind yourself to breathe. The story features a mom with two teenage daughters. I could easily watch a feature film of her defending her daughters and be happy.

I mentioned just two of the ghostly tales that were discussed within the pages of this book, but the book is packed with tales of ghosts and hauntings from across America, both far in the distant past and the not-so-distant past Examining America's ghost stories through the lens of historical facts does provide a richer explanation for events that seem otherwise murky or unexplainable.
Perhaps this historical context also attempts to help speak about injustices that have remain unaddressed. I think Colin Dickey expresses this idea best View all 28 comments.

In addition to racism and sexism, my review mentions slavery, sex work, grave robbing, and rape.

Dickey's thesis is that the United States is haunted not by ghosts but by its history, anxieties over what it means to be American, and questions of whether Americans can ever really own the land they live on, since the majority of the population willingly came here from somewhere else and displaced, removed, and killed the people already here.
Sounds good, but with his language choices Dickey repeatedly sides with the colonizer, the slave owner—the oppressor rather than the oppressed.
He writes that the French "found" Louisiana in the early s. He describes a slave owner as taking "a shine" to a young slave girl, a "light-skinned mulatto" whom he "brought into the house and made his concubine.
Instead of acknowledging how disgusting this is, Dickey writes, "He excavated hundreds of objects from the fields of the Trudeau Plantation and, having nowhere else to put them, began stockpiling them in his house.
He talks of the "tragic mulatto" and "octaroon mistresses" with "exotic charm. He appropriates and then misuses a concept from the Kiswahili speakers of east and central Africa who distinguish between the recently dead who still have people who remember them and the dead who are no longer part of living memory.
In the chapter on brothels, he uses the phrase "ghosts of ill repute," terms like "working girls," "prostitutes," "pimped out," and though he eventually acknowledges the huge amount of emotional labor the job requires, he only once calls these women "sex workers," the preferred term of many in the industry.
He gets it wrong more than he gets it right. His text is racist, ableist I'll spare you the example; it's way gross , and while not outright misogynist, not at all interested in the idea that women are as important as men.
For example: All the times he describes white slave owners as having—in his words—an affair with a black slave or taken a black mistress, as if that was ever anything other than rape.
I agree with his thesis that America is haunted by its history. That our ghost stories often reflect our fears and anxieties about the past.
The introduction—which was straightforward and easy to read, unlike the overwritten slop of the text—described a book I was excited to read, but the execution is deeply flawed.
The specifics aren't so specific, or illuminating. Of course a mental hospital is going to be haunted as fuck. Same goes for a prison, or an old mining town, or Salem, Massachusetts.
Basically he gives us a list of places that are likely to be haunted, a very brief description of a haunting in one of those locations, and then a ham-handed history of the area and the anxieties it represents, mostly for white people.
Black people are only really referenced in association with slavery. The chapter on Richmond, Virginia, opens with a list of neighborhood ghosts: the gunsmith's apprentice, a woman in period dress, a knife-wielding fishmonger, more spectral sex workers.
On the second page, Dickey wonders why, in what was "the most heavily trafficked slave trading area in the United States," are there only white ghosts?
The answer, of course, is because that's how he wrote it. Eight pages later, he admits, "Once you start looking for ghosts that aren't white, they're easy to find.
Native Americans are mentioned but only as a source of anxiety rather than a people with their own set of ghosts. There's no talk of the countless Chinese and Irish immigrants who died building the railroads.
No discussion of the Japanese incarcerated during World War II. So when the author says America is haunted by its history, he's talking about, and to, a very specific color of America, with a very limited sense of the horrors this country has inflicted, on others and itself.
Dickey, who I maintain is a lazy asshole, writes: "the kinds of ghosts you look for, and the kinds of ghosts you see, depend on your frame of reference.
That failure to look beyond his own experience is readily apparent in this book. He's missing some ghosts. Dec 21, Book Riot Community added it.
Dickey does a great job blending scholarly arguments about cultural memory, trauma, and place-making with contemporary takes on urban legends and ghost stories.
Mar 15, BAM Endlessly Booked rated it it was ok Shelves: american-nonfiction , deleted. This book is NO FUN!
He debunks everything! At least he visits the hotel that inspired King's The Shining. He has sections on houses, institutions, public houses, graveyards; nothing is left unturned, it's just that everything is left unhaunted.

Myths busted. Legends debunked. As the title is self-explanatory, the book tells us the history of America's most popular?
Some were familiar to me, some were not. It did make for an interesting and at times compelling read, with all the background and history behind the so-called haunted places, be it old mansions of nineteenth century, business areas like Toys R US, hotels, bars, brothels, bookstores I would definitely like to visit one of those , prisons etc.
However, t Ouch! However, the dispassionate, at times dry and sometimes digressing narrative took the fun out of reading this one.
Underwhelmed 2. This book is probably not what you are expecting I was excited to get this novel and couldn't wait to read it. I was disappointed though as it was written by a seemingly very skeptical Author.
Coming from a semi-skeptic, I was looking forward to the history of the various places and possible proof to support the claims.
However, I found it to be more of a forum for the author to bash believers and individuals working in the field. It would seem that his goal is to take away belief of the para This book is probably not what you are expecting It would seem that his goal is to take away belief of the paranormal.
The history was done well, but I didn't care for how the Author tore everything and everyone apart in the end leaving you wondering if you just wasted your time.
He could have just as easily said, that in his opinion, it is all fake and saved us the time View 1 comment. Nov 18, Sara rated it liked it Shelves: horror-supernatural , non-fiction.
This was an interesting take on hauntings. The author did not discuss whether the hauntings were true or not though he seems to have his doubts but rather what they say about us as a society, as a country.
He discusses how some ghost stories may have a glimmer of truth in their origin but have been embellished to suit our purposes. The purpose may be to whitewash our history, to assuage our guilt about events that have happened.
The purpose might be to draw attention to something in our past th This was an interesting take on hauntings.
The purpose might be to draw attention to something in our past that needs to be addressed. The purpose might be to divert ourselves from more serious issues such as racism.
The purpose might be as simple as drumming up tourism or scaring children into being good. Colin Dickey traveled throughout the states, gathering these stories.
Some I am very familiar with, others I had never heard of. He did put a good perspective on our hauntings, made me think about some new ideas.
I never thought about our ghost stories as being part of our national mythology like this. I still like to be scared, so I think I'll stay less of a skeptic than he is.
Sep 24, Danielle rated it liked it Shelves: amazon-vine , ghosts. Then to see that this book hooked stories of ghosts with American history, I was ready to engrossed with this book.
In the end, I was a little disappointed in this book. The book advertises ghosts but Colin pretty much doesn't believe in ghosts and makes a point to disprove all of the stories he features.
If you've read any ghost books, you'll be sure to recognize some of the stories, like the Winchester Mystery House. There were some interesting bits of the book but then there were some more boring parts that I skimmed somewhat.
If you are looking for a book that features just ghost stories, this isn't the book you want to read. But if you are a skeptic and want to read a book that disproves some ghost stories, then you might like this book Jan 24, Jill Hutchinson rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction , american-history.
I was not necessarily looking for a book that explained "hauntings" or took a biased opinion one way or the other. In fact I'm not sure why I read this but it was fairly enjoyable.
The author is ambivalent about the presence of ghosts and pretty much sticks to the facts of famous haunted places He takes a very negative view of the professional ghost hunters and the I was not necessarily looking for a book that explained "hauntings" or took a biased opinion one way or the other.
He takes a very negative view of the professional ghost hunters and the "reality" programs on television that are basically made to titillate the public.
He feels that this and the once popular practice of seances and spiritualism which in most cases turned out to be scams have influenced a large audience of believers in the supernatural.
And through searching the supposed reason that a place is haunted a murder, child abuse, etc. But he doesn't totally discount the presence of ghosts and suggests that some individuals are more sensitive to the environment of a haunted place than others.
One really can't draw any conclusions about his research since it is often a bit vague but this is a fairly interesting book to read between more serious tomes.
Aug 05, Cynthia rated it it was amazing Shelves: nonfiction , lib-campbell , paranormal. Review to come. I read this for the "Haunted Houses" square.
I don't know what to say. This was a really well researched and thought out book by Colin Dickey. He provides enough information that made me want to do my own digging and research into some of the homes and other locations he mentions in this book.
Besides looking at I read this for the "Haunted Houses" square. Besides looking at the supposed hauntings, he goes into backstories that would have led to a person or persons to believe a haunting was occurring.
This book goes into what I would call typical hauntings of homes, to hauntings of cemeteries, hotels, brothels Mustang Ranch , cities, battlefields, and even a bridge.
And the book wraps things up about how our next form of being haunted can be via social media. I personally remember being surprised one day when Facebook popped up with a memory of me with a friend who had passed away.
I remember flinching and just feeling sad and hurt all over again about her passing away. It didn't even occur to me that one day, I too could be a ghost of sorts, haunting my friends and family via social media.
He also mixes in popular culture American Horror Story along with horror books that reference some of the hauntings that he provides more details on for readers.
I already said that I loved Dickey's look into the Salem Witch Trials by looking further at the "House of Seven Gables". I also loved his foray into Richmond, VA and it's ugly history of selling slaves.
Heck, I loved Dickey for calling out the fact that it's weird in locations with a huge minority population or slaves, most of the ghosts were white.
And or most of the hauntings surrounding women who were slaves, made them the aggressors stealing a white man who was married from the poor unsuspecting wife.
Dickey writes a book that is unflinching about what was, what is, and what could be our future as a country when it comes to how we all will be portrayed after our deaths.
He also turns a cynical eye towards so called ghost hunters who have morphed from an eclectic group of people who were interested in the history of a place, to people who are trying to gain some fame through reality television.
And I loved that Dickey also debunked some of the hauntings in the book. I'm a fan of Eric Weiner, recently tackling his latest work The Geography of Genius: A Search for the World's Most Creative Places from Ancient Athens to Silicon Valley.
That book and this one struck me the same way: great content and narration, but likely more suited for print reading. Here, the chapters utilize specific examples of hauntings to make larger points.
The House of the Seven Gables in Salem, though more eerie than specifically haunted, starts off the book's overall examination of Am I'm a fan of Eric Weiner, recently tackling his latest work The Geography of Genius: A Search for the World's Most Creative Places from Ancient Athens to Silicon Valley.
The House of the Seven Gables in Salem, though more eerie than specifically haunted, starts off the book's overall examination of American history and culture with a look at motivation behind the accusations, including the land on which the house stands.
The author moves on to the Winchester Mystery House in California, which is more in the nature of a debunking of its myths.
However, there's a chapter on places where ghosts were contacted by Spiritualists, leading to a focus on Victorian gender issues.
Later, the author asks "If the non-white experience had much tragedy, why are so many ghosts white? I wasn't all that interested in the section covering prisons, so tuned out much of that one I admit.
The chapter on haunted buildings gave a shout out to the local mental hospital where I was raised: Greystone Park - yay for the home team! I had been sent there to attend commitment hearings for a while when I worked in the local court system.
I guess if I had to really boil down a synopsis: "What do the living 'get' out of hauntings? I'm left feeling that was from listening to that much essay-style nonfiction at a go, as opposed to the print edition?
Again, the narration was very good, quite well-suited to the work, so in that regard, Your Mileage May Vary as they say. View all 12 comments.
Apr 29, Amy rated it it was amazing Shelves: the-true-story-of. If you want to understand a place, ignore the boastful monuments and landmarks, and go straight to the haunted houses.
Ghostland was a fascinating read but not for the original reason I checked out the book. I wanted to be spooked by various haunted locations throughout the country.
Instead, I learned of the facts behind the stories and how they evolved into their modern day telling along with the various purposes that the stories serve, besides just for entertainment value.
Most of the locations If you want to understand a place, ignore the boastful monuments and landmarks, and go straight to the haunted houses.
Most of the locations are well known to anyone with an interest in the paranormal - Myrtles Plantation, The Biltmore Hotel and the Winchester Mystery House to name a few.
For each location, he relates the most famous ghost story and then delves into some of the history of the city, building or events that occurred in the area.
He then makes a very convincing argument for how the ghost story has functioned as an aid to the community. The functions all differ. In some cases, the stories help to sugarcoat or downplay an historical atrocity of which there are many or perhaps the story has been souped up to increase tourism of the area or it may be used as a cautionary tale to the community.
In many cases: Hauntings keep alive neglected spaces and make them relevant to the communities once again. The author keeps a pretty even keel in his tone and treatment of the ghost stories and locations.
The only time he seems to get a bit irritated is when writing about ghost hunters for profit or fame and the "dark tourism" industry, which he feels is disingenuous and potentially harmful to the scientific field of the paranormal and to the landmarks themselves, which can become vandalized due to thrill seekers.
The very last section of the book incorporated technology as potential ghost makers. His examples included such things as Facebook profiles that live on after a person dies or in one case, a house that had been rigged for appliances and lights to turn off and on via computer program that was never turned off after the owner died and others moved in.
I found it an interesting take on technology and one I hadn't considered before. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves both history and the paranormal.
