Storyline

"The Sixth Sense" meets "The Breakfast Club" when a teacher who sees dead people applies for work at a high school haunted by five student poltergeists who died during detention. All his life Modesto has seen dead people walking around like living people and has long accepted the assessment of others that he has a mental problem. Principal Tina Escalonilla turns that around when Modesto describes a detail (known to her) about the school spirits that no others have been able to reveal. With her school poised to be closed due to unrelenting paranormal high jinx, she begs Modesto to stay and see what he can do to ease these spirits into the next life before Founder's Day.

original and funny story explaining how ghosts do their "supernatural stuff"
27 March 2017 | by xabadiarSee all my reviews

A great comedy, I had a great time watching it. There's only one arbitrary point in the plot: the main character -Modesto the teacher- has the special capability to see the ghosts no one else can see, dead people who still have some unsolved subject which keeps them trapped invisible among the living. Why was Modesto born with this capability? Well, who cares... What follows is an original and funny story explaining how a group of 5 ghosts trapped in a school do their "supernatural stuff", like possessions and such. With the extra fun that these ghosts are from the 80s, dressing and talking on the 80s fashion.
