    Synopsis:
    In the sleepy little town of Fairwater, a monstrous evil has awakened...an evil so powerful, its reach extends beyond the grave. Director Peter Jackson and Executive Producer Robert Zemickis unleash a riveting thriller with the most spectacular special effects this side of the hereafter.

    For Frank Bannister (Michael J. Fox), death is a great way to make a living: 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 Frank finds himself at the centre of a dark mystery. A diabolical spirit is on a murderous rampage, and the whole town believes Frank is behind it.

    Boasting music by Danny Elfman and co-starring Trini Alverado, Jeffrey Combs and John Astin, this supernatural chiller is so fiendishly entertaining it`s scary!
