Comedy horror from New Zealand director Peter Jackson. Frank Bannister (Michael J. Fox) is a psychic investigator in the town of Fairwater, aided by three friendly ghosts who create supernatural disturbances for him to 'solve'. However, when Frank begins to see numbers carved into the foreheads of people who subsequently die as a result of a bizarre heart failure, he realizes that an evil spirit is causing the deaths. As the last person to be seen near the victims Frank is suspected by eccentric Federal agent Milton Dammers (Jeffrey Combs) of being in some way responsible - especially when it is revealed that Frank's own wife died some years previously in mysterious circumstances.
