Comedy horror

Having replayed last week's Film Programme, I wonder if there might be a comic slant on the situation the film crew find themselves in. They have been shooting The Power in a superannuated hospital of the type which used to be known as a lunatic asylum. This has been on the brink of being disposed of for some time but remains in constant demand as a TV and film location. Some of the people who spoke to Antonia Quirke for the programme claim to have heard the sound of children crying on one of the deserted corridors. 

What if the ghostly inhabitants of such a building wanted to protect it from an evil property developer and therefore tried to scare off said developer while at the same time contrived to prolong the stay of the last film crew using the premises? Their motivation would not be revealed until the final reel, of course.
