The Frighteners – Co-written and directed by Peter Jackson, the man who pulled together the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Michael J. Fox stars as a man who can see ghosts, but uses his ability to scam the living until he meets the ghost of a serial killer who’s continuing his work from beyond the grave. Funny yet suspenseful, with a wonderful cast that includes John Astin (Sean’s father, best remembered as Gomez from the Addams Family TV series), Robert Downey, Jr., and Jake Busey. The effects used to create the Grim Reaper were the basis of the appearance of the Nazgul in LOTR.
