Watch the adorable "The Girl With A Fear Of Ghosts" and get your geek on.
Spending our morning picking out retro video game references in a short film was not on today's agenda, but sometimes you find something that appeals to you in just the right way.
The Girl With A Fear Of Ghosts is an adorable 3min short film from Joe and Lloyd Stas. It tells the fleeting and tragic story of Maria, a girl who has to take a Polaroid of everyone she meets to make sure they aren't a ghost (We can imagine that gets expensive quickly). Also, it's heavily inspired by the big yellow pill-munching Pac-Man games. Because of course it is.
