The Frighteners product reviews

For Frank Bannister, death is good business... he makes his living ridding haunted houses of their unwelcome "guests". Business is good, but he is also in cahoots with the very ghosts he's to evict!

He's created the perfect scam until he finds himself at the center of a dark and terrible mystery. A diabolical evil spirit is on a murderous rampage, but the entire town of Fairwater is blaming an innocent Frank. Desperate to find the true culprit and fighting to exorcise his own personal "demons", Frank crosses the line into the shadowy world where even death can't stop a killer.

I can recall watching this a few time late at night on TV, nothing else to do and nothing else to watch but only being able to watch a very short amount of the film before getting rather freaked out (despite enjoying it) and having to switch it off, so it wasn't until a few years later that I finally sat down and watched the entire film from start to finish. This is a great movie, there are a few laugh out loud moments at the start but it quickly turns dark and can have you on the edge of your seat (at least until you've seen it a couple of times).

The special effects on this are really good and it is worth noting that this is the last live action movie that Michael J. Fox performed in before Spin City and then of course his departure from that role due to his health. This was all filmed in New Zealand, so that adds to the coolness factor and it ia cool to see that this has a cult following now. The special effects in this are really good and stnad the test of time really well. This is an awesome film and having it NZ made just ups the cool factor.

Product reviews for listing 1450: Flushed Away
Director: David Bowers and Sam Fell

Product image for Flushed AwayRoddy is a decidedly upper-crust 'society mouse' who lives the life of a beloved pet in a posh Kensington flat. When a sewer rat named Sid comes spewing out of the sink and decides he's hit the jackpot, Roddy schemes to rid himself of the pest by luring him into the 'whirlpool spa'.

Sid may be an ignorant slob, but he's no fool, so it ... more...
