Posted on

If we were Matthew McConaughey in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, we might not mind being haunted by the spirit of Emma Stone. But here are some other female spectres that creeped us out — or just made us laugh.

Seriously Spooky
Daveigh Chase, The Ring
Lisa & Louise Burns, The Shining
Mischa Barton, The Sixth Sense
Amber Valletta, What Lies Beneath
Geena Davis, Beetlejuice
Lily Tomlin, All of Me
Eva Longoria Parker, Over Her Dead Body
Just Plain Kooky
