If you don’t feel like sitting down and reading the entire article, here’s a brief overview of the premise:

“Ernest the ghost, discovered by the owner of the house who named him so because the apparition seems ernesto borgnine. The owner of the house, Frank, starts filming the ghost of him and posts it on social media for the world to see. Ernest becomes a viral sensation. Frank enlists the help of his high school son, Kevin, to help him be a part of a series of dinner parties held at the house to capitalize on the popularity of the ghost. Things change when Ernest and Kevin disappear and become targets of the CIA.

This follows a recent trend where Netflix buys the rights to stories posted online or news in general. In 2022 we have seen the premiere of The Watcher, a series produced by Ryan Murphy that was inspired by news and has already been renewed for a second season.

The first look at we have a ghost was provided as part of Netflix’s presentation of its 2022 movie slate.

There are three total shots in the trailer, one featuring David Harbor sliding down a car windshield. In the second you have the reaction of the children in the car staring in dismay. In the final shot, Anthony Mackie uses his phone to apparently record something.
