Fear of ghosts, their vengeance and mischief is a common base for a plot in the [[ghost story]] literary genre and in [[ghost movies]].
In cartoons & comics, [[Casper]]'s efforts to make friends, is hampered by humans, animals and even inanimate objects irrationally panicking, screaming and running away at the sight of him. It may be said that the characters Shaggy and Scooby from the TV and movie franchise "Scooby Doo" suffer from phasmophobia.
