Synopsis:
In the sleepy little town of Fairwater, a monstrous evil has awakened...an evil so powerful, its reach extends beyond the grave. Director Peter Jackson and Executive Producer Robert Zemeckis unleash a riveting thriller with the most spectacular special effects this side of the hearafter.

For Frank Bannister (Michael J. Fox), death is a great way to make a living: ridding haunted houses of their unwelcome "guests". But as it happens, he's in cahoots with the very ghosts he promises to evict! It's the perfect scam...until Frank finds himself at the center of a dark and terrible mystery. A diabolical spirit is on a murderous rampage, and the whole town believes Frank is behind it. Desperate to find the true culprit and exorcise his own personal "demons", Frank crosses the ultimate barrier into a shadowy world where even death can't stop a killer.
