  3. "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken." This is an oldie but goodie. Don Knots plays a news typist who wants to be a reporter. He wants to break a big story about the most haunted house in his town and offers to spend a night alone in the house. The only thing he finds is that he is scared of everything.
  4. "Ghost." This ghost movie proves to be romantic, funny and a bit too intense to take seriously. Demi Moore plays a widow after Swayze gets shot. He comes back to find out what truly happened to him and can only communicate with a psychic played by Whoopi Goldberg.
  5. "13 Ghosts." While this ghost movie is a bit dramatic and scary, it also has very humorous dialog.

The dialog and actors are very comedic in this movie.
  6. "The Blair Witch Project." This is another movie about a ghost, but not just any ghost. It's a ghost of a witch. While this movie was a huge blockbuster and was made to be scary, many people found it more humorous than funny. A couple of college kids go into the woods and document their search for the Blair Witch, and find much more along the way.
