4.0 out of 5 stars Under-rated and frighteningly good !, 29 Dec 2005
This review is from: The Frighteners [DVD] (DVD)
An early undiscovered gem from the writing team that later brought the world The Lord Of The Rings and King Kong.
Peter Jackson(along with Fran Walsh) created this great horror- comedy-thriller almost ten years ago before they became known worldwide and in it they tell the story of Frank Bannister as played by Michael J. Fox who is a small-town "ghost-buster" in league with the very spirits he is supposeed to be exorcising.
This scam works well until a dangerous and powerful spirit goes on a murderous rampage thus forcing Frank to stop him in any way neccesary.
This director's cut DVD is also packed with an introduction by Jackson along with an audio commentary originally recorderd for the Laserdisc and also has an extensive making-of documentary which is over 4 hours!

5.0 out of 5 stars An indispensable guide to the best spin-off show ever!, 20 Nov 2004
First of all can I say that I absolutely love this show and a part of me mourns its passing each and every day but at least I am able to remember through this book why it was so brilliant in the first place.
Volume 2 covers every episode of seasons 3 and 4 in great detail including classic quotes, continuity info, dialogue that is taken from the shooting scripts, interviews with the all the cast and crew and a whole lot more.
This book also contains over 100 great full colour photos and even though at 296 pages isn't as large as volume 1 its as equally brilliant and with it being the only official companion this is a real must-have for any true fan of the show, buy it now - "lets go to work!"

4.0 out of 5 stars The 'lost' View Askew film., 16 Aug 2004
Here it is, the 'lost' View Askew film finaly arrives on DVD. Was it worth the wait? Certainly, if only to see the performance of Jason Lee who completely dominates this film and that is no bad thing. Other View Askew favourites pop up - Jason 'Jay' Mews, Ethan Suplee and one or two other suprises that I won't spoil by revealing here!
This film certainly doesn't outstay its welcome at just 76 minutes and even though some critics have disliked the ending I found it bizarrely different and interesting. Overall a good addition to my View Askew collection, check it out.
