The Frighteners [1996] (SSS 75)

This week Saw Something Scary jumps into the time machine and goes to see Peter Jackson's 1996, genre-confounding, The Frighteners.  This movie broke Derik and what results is a free flowing conversation about... well... lots of stuff, including the movie in question.

The guys from the Triple S Pod got to see some classic Robert Zemeckis goodness.  They saw some classic Michael J. Fox.  They saw a whos-who of that-guy actors.

But did they see something scary?
