Pay the Ghost is a 2015 paranormal horror film. It is set in modern day New York City, USA. It concerns scary concepts and creepy events, so while it is at a PG level as far as language is concerned, it might not be suitable for young children. The story builds along lines evocative of Gothic style story-telling, suggesting a hidden mythology under the modern urban facade of the bustling city. During a public Halloween parade, a university professor's son disappears. The professor suspects that his son's disappearance has something to do with a local suspected witch. A legend has it that the witch, whose own children were taken from her during a witch trial, comes back to steal children from the living. The professor (Mike Cole) and his wife search for a year for their son before uncovering clues in the urban graffiti of downtown New York, and coaxing more clues form the ghost stories told by homeless people in New York. The Coles get increasingly paranoid as they suspect that someone is merely kidnapping their child and toying with them. The couple are haunted both by their son's disappearance and various spooky events happening in their lives. They enlist the aid of a psychic and other paranormal experts to help them on their quest. The Coles eventually have to confront the reality of these supernatural events and beings in order to solve the mystery of what happened to their son, while sorting truth from fiction and urban myths from grim reality.
