Critic Consensus: Ghost Stories offers a well-crafted, skillfully told horror anthology that cleverly toys with genre tropes while adding a few devilishly frightful twists.

Critic Reviews for Ghost Stories
A real layer cake, this horror lark from British TV guys Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman.
It's a letdown to find that there's nothing at the bottom of a box of tricks which in themselves are not as clever as they could have been.
Ghost Stories has more genuine scares than most horror movies, so it almost seems a bit unfair when it's funny too.
This film nails its black humor and finds a bizarre but satisfying conclusion to manage all the loose ends.
The element that's too often missing from horror is one that Dyson and Nyman relish: fun.
Audience Reviews for Ghost Stories
Three ghost stories in a frame narrative that starts out slowly and what seems to be unnecessarily complicated. The devil is in the details, though and ultimately there is a pay-off, maybe even warranting another viewing or two. As for the ghost stories, they are wonderfully unpleasant and have quite a few jump scares. Overall, and without entering spoiler territory, I appreciated what the movie attempted and was pretty entertained, but somehow it could have achieved even more in every aspect.
What you've got here are three relatively intriguing horror concepts that end just as they are getting interesting held together by a pretty mediocre central story.
