Electric Ghost Magazine is an independent online film publication dedicated to heterodox navigations of transformative cinema. 

 

Run by cinephiles educated in film interpretation, we heed the medium's message, separate its wisdom from its blindness, and show how film can act as a guide to life.

“Though as a writer I am still ossifying and, hopefully, that will always be the case, I am sure that I aspire to the tradition of critics like Manny Farber and Dave Kehr. Namely, criticism that aims to make legible how a film works, the sensations, emotions and ideas that it offers and its relationship to the world around us. I hope I can illuminate the personality or personalities that are responsible for and behind every frame and not what I think should be there.”

~ Ruairí

Ruairí McCann is a writer and programmer based in Ireland. He graduated from University College Dublin with a BA in English Literature with Film Studies and received an MA in Film Studies from Queen's University Belfast, where his thesis was a film delving into the history of the now-defunct Savoy Cinema, located in his home county of Sligo.

His interests go far afield. From the outsiders of contemporary art cinema to the bric-à-brac of Classical Hollywood and the multitudes outside and in between. Ruairí sits on the board of the Sligo Film Society and he has published film texts on Photogénie and the Berlin Film Journal.
