The tourists soon realise that any supposed hauntings on show are actually the result of Plunkett's staff in various costumes & guises and declare that they will publicly denounce his claims and that is when things start to get spooky, from bloody hands in mounted fish-heads to eerie ghoulish nuns all making an appearance to the tourists.
It soon becomes apparent to all that Castle Plunkett is actually home to real ghosts .
Two of these ghosts, Martin (Liam Neeson) and Mary (Daryl Hannah) have been doomed to re-enact the same argument every evening for the past 200 years, in which Martin, convinced that his new bride was being unfaithful, stabbed her to death on their wedding night.
This reenactment is one night witnessed by mild mannered and neglected husband Jack ( Steve Guttenberg ) who complicates matters further when both he and Mary generate a mutual attraction.
She see's him as the man who has broke the curse that had her being murdered every night and he, is, well, a Tourist.
As he says to her at one point " you're a ghost, I'm an American, it would never work "
It then escalates into a series of events featuring ghostly goings on, Martin falling for Jack's arrogant wife ( Beverly D'Angelo ) and a night of hilarity culminating in a night of " scalping " between Jack & Mary.
Be interesting to see if the original film Director Neil Jordan set out to make is in any way represented on screen, as in it's finished form it is full of inconsistencies in the way it flows.Read more ›
