THE FRIGHTENERS
1996, Universal, 110 min, New Zealand/USA, Dir: Peter Jackson

Peter Jackson’s follow-up to the acclaimed HEAVENLY CREATURES was this unusual mix of horror and dark comedy. Michael J. Fox stars as architect Frank Bannister, who gains the ability to see spirits after his wife’s death in an accident. At first Bannister exploits this power to set up a ghostbusting business - until he crosses paths with a dead serial killer who is still looking for victims. Shot in New Zealand (which a chunk of the film’s sizable digital effects budget turned into Middle America), the film earned eight Saturn Award nominations and features a score by Danny Elfman.

RE-ANIMATOR
1985, AGFA, 86 min, USA, Dir: Stuart Gordon

Adapted from the H.P. Lovecraft tale of Herbert West, this mind-bending, darkly funny horror thriller was a breakout hit, establishing newcomer director Stuart Gordon as a force to be reckoned with. Impetuous researcher Jeffrey Combs develops a serum that can bring back the dead, something that his new roommate (Bruce Abbott) hadn’t exactly bargained for. Delivers on every front with laughs, shocks and genuine shivers escalating until the outrageous, gore-drenched finale. With Barbara Crampton and David Gale.
