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.
Random listing from 'Movies'...
Tucker and Dale vs Evil is a hilarious comedy about a pair of harmless hillbillies who are mistaken for vicious serial killers. Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine) are headed towards their newly acquired dream 'summer home' when they save the life of a gorgeous college student (Katrina Bowden) who's camping in the woods with some friends. Before long a series of misunderstandings leads to Tucker and Dale being labelled psycho killers by the holidaying students. The situation quickly turns for the worse with ghastly but hilarious consequences.
