The Frighteners

Frank Bannister is a psychic swindler possessed with a genuine ability to communicate with the dearly departed, earning a stiff living by setting up "spirit clearance" scams with his ghostly cronies. But Frank may not be the only one in the town working the paranormal side of things. A series of inexplicable deaths and bizarre occurrences suggest the presence of a malign poltergeist. Michael J. Fox and Trini Alvarado star in this wickedly funny suspense thriller that explores the folklore and mythology of psychics, ghosts, and the afterlife.
