Scared to Death

Editor's Note: In Extremis is an ongoing series that will address your burning legal plot hole queries from horror cinema. Example topics include but are not limited to, “Are blobs people in the eyes of the law?” or “Is the creature from The Thing just gerrymandering?”. Adam is BGH's official unofficial lawyer who continues to make our decisions regrettable and reminds everyone to never, ever listen to our advice. This time Adam considers whether or a not the undead can be jailed for causing a victim to give up the ghost.

One of the most common circumstances in the horror industry is for technicians from one aspect of the genre to cross over to the directing chair, bringing their unique expertise and expanding their influence on the final product.
