Ghosts (2019)

WATCH ON PARAMOUNT PLUS

Ghosts is an eerie way to convey supernatural comedy, but it succeeds mainly due to the cast that maintains the chemistry throughout. When a dead-broke couple inherits a country house that exceeds their wildest dreams, their decision to move in immediately may have been made too soon.

Rose McIver
Tommaso Boddi / Stringer Via Gettyimages.com

When they finally move in, they discover that the country house isn’t as grand as it seems from the outside and is filled with ghosts of the former residents. The format ends up being very silly, but silly is also a genre of comedy that we feel is much necessary in today’s times.
