The Formula for the Perfect Ghost Story

"In a remote fjord in the east of Iceland stands a lone uninhabited farmhouse, thought to have been Haunted since the 18th century. Tales have been told of SKOTTA, the ghost of a young girl who is believed to haunt the place. Inspired by a novel written by the renowned Icelandic author Þórbergur Þórðarson, titled Viðfjarðarundrin (The Wonders of Vidfjordur), in which he documents the old stories, including the tale of SKOTTA.
