A new chance to enjoy Peter Jackson's surreal take on the haunted house genre

The Frighteners review

Made between his early splatstick period and Frodo and co’s epic journey, Peter Jackson’s first foray into big-budget filmmaking is a supernatural slasher with wacky comedy glasses.

Michael J. Fox is the psychic conman who tricks his neighbours out of phoney ghostbusting fees with the help of his real phantom friends, taking the film from kooky cartoon fun to decidedly un-family-friendly horror along the way.

Eccentric, muddled and CGI heavy; Jackson’s Hollywood debut still manages to look like a cult classic.
