Halloween season is here, and T.V. stations are playing films they feel are relevant to this season which includes films about ghosts.

You may choose more than one answer for each.
In some cases, no answer may fit perfectly.
Please feel free to come up with your own answers. That is, please don't feel limited by the choices.
There are 29 pages (including this one), and, for the full effect of the exercise, it is necessary to go in order and not skip ahead, especially not to the end.
These questions are not meant as a quiz or test, so there are no ratings as to right or wrong, correct or incorrect or even a place to record your answers.
The questions are meant only to stimulate self-exploration and thought about the meaning and place of good and bad feelings.
