Really nice light effect projector. Actually looks more like fireworks or waves to me, but with some eerie music you can envision it projects ghosts in flames; I actually find it kind of calming to watch. It has 15 light combos but only three colors (green, orange, and purple) with white being the fourth ‘color’, but doe a very nice job with them (see video for all the color combos). All of the color combos are controlled by the remote, but it only has one effect, the ‘flame’ (or ‘fireworks’ as I see it) effect. It is bright, or as bright as any other one I have seen. I can see this being used at time of the year other than Halloween. It works best if it is close to the wall it is projecting onto and with as little ambient light as possible; in fact, personally I like using this indoors as a party light.
My only real complaint is the remote, as it is the only way to operate it. It is small and could be easily lost. I put mine on a keychain and hang it on my refrigerator so I don’t lose it.
LightShow Super Bright Ghost Flame 15-Programs Halloween Projection with Remote Control
This light is better suited for the limited distances found indoors, rather than set up outside. Although the 15 different light displays are interesting, the brightness of the lamp limits the quality of the projection display over any significant distance. The image is also impacted negatively by any ambient lighting, like a porch light. The cord is not that long, which means using an extension cord. That raises the concern as to how water-proof the unit and cord are. There is a lawn spike included with the lamp for use outdoors, but no base option to allow for use indoors. The remote control is very easy to use.
I had seen an earlier Halloween light show projection fixture like this one that actually had images of ghosts floating around a series of “flames”. This is not it, even though the name somewhat suggests that with a name “Ghostflame”. There is no ghost image. The picture on the box pretty much matches what the display looks like. I didn’t like the difficulty in opening the battery compartment (chipped my fingernail). The 110 volt electrical plug-in is a housing to hold a fuse for the system. Not sure why it’s needed . I saw this before years ago, and I’m not too big of a fan of that “feature”. You will probably want the wall to be within 20 feet of the projector, or it becomes pretty faint. Obviously depends on how much background light the area has that you are in. The description says ”super bright” but I can’t agree with that.
I do like the ability of the remote to modify the colors (15 different options).
Something to keep in mind, for any light show projector, you should consider your ability to keep the extension cord protected well enough so someone doesn’t trip on it at night.
The unit does function, and the image on the box matches what you get. I was just expecting more, so I dropped the rating down to 3.

First, the LED light is very bright so avoid looking at it directly. This light is much more than just a Halloween novelty light. The basic light colors are green, orange, purple and white. The remote control also allows you to select 11 more combinations of two to four colors at the same time—many are far from what I would call Halloween colors--which is good. Unfortunately, the directions and power cord labeling state that the light is only good for temporary use and installation up to 90-days maximum. I am betting that the light will last longer and that something may have been lost in translation and they really mean that the product is only guaranteed for 90-days.
The remote worked right out-of-the-box and is intuitive to use. The stated range of the remote is 20-feet which is accurate. A built-in memory function retains the last selection in case power is lost or turned off for the night. As shipped, the CR2032 battery was in the collar that attaches the swivel mount to light so look close for it. It is a snug fit and the battery will need to be popped out and inserted in the remote. Opening the battery compartment of the remote is a little tricky.
The light pattern is hard to describe, but the product name “Ghostflame” is as good as any. The intertwined, flame-like pattern produced is interesting and would have other seasonal applications. The swirling pattern is due in part to the embossed swirls in the clear globe that encloses the LED light and a second flat, rotating clear plate with swirls located just above the LED chip assembly. Repackaging--without the jack-o-lantern image--for other occasions would make sense. Directing the light at a small disco ball also produced a great effect.
The mounting arrangement is designed to be screwed into a male threaded spike provided and pushed into the ground. FYI: The stud is a M6-1.0 so a bolt could be used to attach the light to a clamp or a fixed surface if desired. There is a swivel connector at the light to allow it to be easily positioned. The power cord is 75-inches (~190 cm) long.
There is mention that if the product is not used in accordance with the manual, i.e. instructions, then the guarantee becomes void. However, there is no mention of an actual guarantee or period. I assume that there may be a 90-day guarantee so make your own cost benefit decision. There is a Texas contact address listed on the box. The product is made in China.

Worked well with lots of color options. I didn't give it 5 stars because it wasn't as bright as I hoped it would be. I did love that it gave color to the side of my garage. I've only had it for one Halloween. It survived some significant rain with no issues. I'm thinking about using it for Christmas on the all white setting.
