In which Peter Jackson wasn’t always a high-fantasy kind of director and dabbled with schlocky horror early in his career; Michael J. Fox is the most charming and sad-eyed of paranormal con artists; you can never trust a Busey (those teeth and eyes don’t lie, man); and genre favourite Jeffrey Combs is delightfully unhinged as the Hitler-haired FBI Agent Dammers.
Plus: Gomez Addams as a ghost, Dee Wallace gets her crazy on, and everything is just generally atmospheric, wacky, and winning. A modern classic that everyone should see.
