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.

WHO ARE WE?

"In antiquity, the ancients distinguished between the true and valuable dreams which were sent to the dreamer as warnings, or to foretell future events, and the vain, fraudulent and empty dreams, whose object was to misguide him or lead him to destruction." 

— Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams

Electric Ghost Magazine (est. 2016) is an independent online film publication dedicated to heterodox opinion on transformative cinema. We seek to continue the work of the ancients, only with our collective dreams—cinema.

 

It is run by cinephiles educated in aesthetic evaluation and averse to groupthink. 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.

With a mission to provide independent and insightful film journalism, propelled by a team of cinema lovers and experts, we strive to re-assert the empowering potential of movies.

WHY READ ELECTRIC GHOST MAGAZINE?

People turn to Electric Ghost Magazine for depth beyond headlines, for well-reasoned contrarian views on topics in film.

 

Our creed is based on what we think film enthusiasts want to read: informative, engaging and open-minded film journalism, devoid of dogma, political pressures, cliches and commentariat groupthink.

 

We blend this with an elegant and simple design, bringing seriousness and beauty back to film appreciation. 

While we are proud to have a team made up of experts in film, we are equally proud to be non-elitist, unprejudiced in taste, or exclusionary to viewpoints. 

We believe in viewpoint diversity and the virtue of dialectic engagement. As such we are uniquely proud to publish writers of varying persuasions under one apolitical brand.
