I love the movie poster, one of my favorites ever, so simple but so great!

This movie has a phenomenal cast from top to bottom. It followed rules and had great dialogue, a lot of which was hilarious. The ending is fantastic.

I loved the entire ghost concept of this movie. If you miss the light you gotta stick around for awhile. Heaven being awesome. Not traditional awesome but specialized awesome.

Michael J. Fox is perfect as both con artist and believer and is complimented well by ghostly pals and a pretty love interest, i dug her anyway. R Lee Ermey has a great role as what else? a drill sergeant, But this time “of the dead”. He is a scene-stealer as usual.

The visuals in this movie are amazing, the dead look great. Overall this manages to be funny and frightening (get it?) ha! so yea you should definitely watch this or watch it again. Tara recommends it with a 74/100 and I loved it with an 81/100. Highly ownable!


About DJVoorhees13

I don't believe in long winded reviews. I love Jason Voorhees. My favorite Friday is Friday 4: The Final Chapter (even though it isn’t), but I even like Friday 5: A New Beginning. I know the killer is not technically Jason, but you gotta love little Reckless and the blonde woman who keeps throwing him around. My guilty pleasures are Return of the Living Dead Parts 1 – 3. I know they’re not everyone’s favorites, but I can watch them over and over again with no reprieve. I also happen to think that Return of the Living Dead 3 characters Julie and Curt have one of the greatest love story ever told. When I’m not watching horror movies, I’m usually watching old TV shows or reading books/comics. Currently watching Star Trek: Voyager and reading anything by Dante Alighieri.
