Ask the students to use the scientific method to debunk the film. Show the ludicrous posture that your "colleague" has adopted for what it is.

I routinely challenge ghosts and spirits to haunt me; in front of a classroom full of teenagers. The are amused and surprised and then we THINK about what reality would actually be like if there actually were ghosts.......

Well done with your lesson. It has provoked both thought and reaction. Most lessons do neither. As long as your life or livelihood is not threatened, I'd see this one through with the implicit understanding that I am making an enemy (not necessarily a bad thing).
