AllMusic Review by

Ghosts was a 40-minute mini-feature Michael Jackson released in 1997 that essentially copied the style of Thriller. It premiered at the Cannes film festival, where it was supposed to generate interest in his remix album Blood on the Dance Floor. It failed to attract much attention, mainly because of its derivative nature and the fact that there was no place for the bloody thing to play outside of home video. And it was released on home video, months after the initial remix album fell of the charts. In the U.K., Ghosts was released as a limited-edition box set featuring the video, a copy of the Cannes probram, Blood on the Dancefloor and a remix single of Ghosts that also features the previously unreleased "On the Line," which was produced by Babyface. As a collectible, it's of interest to hardcore Jackson fans, but they should be aware that the actual content of this collection is decidedly below par.
