Established in 2016, Electric Ghost Magazine is an independent online film publication dedicated to heterodox opinion on transformative cinema. 

 

It is run by cinephiles educated in aesthetic evaluation, averse to elitist groupthink and fawning "fan" discourse. We heed the medium's message, see the film object as it really is, and show how cinema can function as a humanist guide to life.

"There is a duty to translate this history into the feature film, which is a popular art that can reach people and wake up their imagination and emotions."

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Electric Ghost Magazine spawned out of frustration with commentariat groupthink and bourgeois cliques in film journalism.

We believe in the cultivated individual voice as we pursue clear-headed, heterodox aesthetic evaluation of the latest movie releases and surrounding trends.

Our writers have absolute freedom to write about whatever film-related topic they want, uncensored, and unburdened by notions of perceived "interest" or ungainliness. We have nothing to lose.

Our criticism is devoid of dogma and clickbait, dedicated to exploring the open-minded, empowering possibilities that film offers us.
