Synopsis:
Frank Bannister (Michael J. Fox) makes a living as a small-town "ghost buster," ridding haunted houses of their unwelcome "guests". But he's in cahoots with the very ghosts he promises to evict! It's the perfect scam, until a powerful spirit goes on a murderous rampage, and everyone in town thinks that Frank is behind it. Now he must try to clear his name and find a way to stop this diabolical ghost - without becoming one himself!

great dark fun. - The Frighteners review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
05/10/2005

This film shows Peter Jacksons talents way before Lord Of The Rings stuff. It has some great special effects, and is generally a fun and suitably creepy way to spend a couple of hours.

Good Sunday afternoon B Movie! - The Frighteners review by CS

Spoiler Alert
05/09/2017

Very much of its genre, this is Ghostbusters vs Beetlejuice, with a little bit of Poltergeist and many other hammy comedy horror spoofs of that time thrown in for good measure! It has a very 80's feel to it and feels quite dated considering it was made much later in 1996! The storyline is standard, but this does have a nice feel good vibe, and moves along quite nicely. I didn't find it very funny myself, but thought it was a nice Sunday afternoon film to watch with the kids, even though it is a 15 certificate, there's nothing really scary in here, apart from the theme of a serial killer on the loose!
