–There are also some films which have strange, ghost-like apparitions in them, though it’s hard to decide whether these apparitions are ghosts or not. These films include EMERALD (2007, Apichatpong Weerasethakul) and FLOATING THOUGHTS (2008, Suchada Sirithanawuddhi).

–In the first part of UNDER THE BLANKET (2008, Tossapol Boonsinsukh), we hear two unseen characters talking about some ghost experiences. I like the talking in this part very much.

–The way the ghosts are presented in the last part of CELINE AND JULIE GO BOATING is interesing for me—These ghosts have green or gray faces. I rarely saw ghosts presented like this. I think it looks scary, strange, and funny at the same time. Since I saw very few old films, I’m not sure if there are ghosts in other films which are presented like this or not.

You can see a photo of the ghosts in CELINE AND JULIE GO BOATING at Filmbo’s blog here:

However, I think the ghosts (or vampires, I’m not sure) in THE BODY BENEATH (1970, Andy Milligan) reminds me a little bit of the ones in CELINE AND JULIE GO BOATING, because the ghosts in THE BODY BENEATH also have green faces.

You can see the ghosts of THE BODY BENEATH in its trailer here:

I haven’t seen this film yet, but I got to know THE BODY BENEATH via Twilight Virus’ blog:
