In this episode of the show we are discussing Peter Jackson's first official Hollywood movie, The Frighteners. Over the course of this long-winded and meandering conversation we touched on Jackson's roots in splatter horror, where his career went later and what we think he could do in the future. In addition, we identified the multitude of references found in The Frighteners, opined on the film's peculiar special effects, its jarring tonal inconsistencies, how it is much darker than the label 'horror comedy' could possibly indicate and much more.
