Overview
From Academy Award®-winning* director Peter Jackson (King Kong, The Lord of the Rings) comes this wicked comedy-thriller.

Michael J. Fox stars as Frank Bannister, a small-town "ghostbuster" in league with the very spirits he's supposed to be exorcising. The scam works well until a powerful spirit goes on a murderous rampage, forcing Frank to find a way to stop the diabolical ghoul in this special-effects-packed supernatural chiller that's so fiendishly entertaining, it's frightening!

*2003 Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
