Frank (Fox) is a 'ghosthunter' with a difference. Ever since his wife died he's been haunted for real, but he uses his ghostly colleagues to scam the living – until the ghost of a mass murderer starts offing them. Jackson's 1996 horror comedy didn't do well on release, but Fox gives a touching, high-energy performance and the supporting cast is great, with Combs outstanding as an eccentric FBI agent.
