The Frighteners

Part of the Uncanny Valley Season


Peter Jackson’s final horror-comedy (Bad Taste, Braindead) before his decade-spanning production of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Frighteners further established Jackson’s love and skill for inventive special-effects, and became Michael J. Fox's final leading role in a feature film. Paranormal investigator, Frank Bannister (Fox) is widely considered to be a fraud; but the dead know better and soon the living will too as a disturbing number of souls are ripped-away by what Bannister fears could be the Reaper itself. A healthy cocktail of chilling terror and Jackson’s own eccentric, trademark playfulness. Death, ain't no way to make a living!
