Peter Jackson loved Jeffrey Combs' work on the Re-Animator (1985) movies so much that he asked the casting director to find out whether Combs was still available and working (he was unsure). Fortunately, Combs was available and signed up. He wore black contact lenses for his role. See more »

What sets out to be a comedy movie with ghosts, (and anyone could be forgiven for thinking this is what it would be given that Michael J Fox has the lead) rapidly becomes a very dark supernatural thriller.
The special effects still look good even by todays standards, and the story is solidly written, good characters and good direction, there is not much to criticise in this movie.
The film itself is one that you should not miss, and certainly not because you think its something that it isn't.
8/10 A surprising film, that has probably been overlooked by too many movie lovers.
