The Frighteners

Film (Trailer) – 1996

Mature
...Jackson, at home with all kinds of excess, keeps everything spinning nicely, not even losing a step when the mood turns increasingly disturbing.
– Kenneth Turan in The Los Angeles Times, 19 July 1996J
Frenetic, gleefully demented fun...not only the most efficient scare machine since The Evil Dead, but also the most innovative and accomplished movie of the year.
– Matthew Grainger in The Dominion, 13 December 1996
...at once deliriously loony and oddly endearing...The Frighteners pulls off the difficult trick of being funny without losing its mood of foreboding.
– Calvin Wilson in the Kansas City Star, 19 July 1996
