Michael J. Fox in "The Frighteners"

Michael J. Fox as Frank Bannister

Before Peter Jackson made Kong and the Lord of the Rings trilogy he wrote, produced and directed this horror/supernatural comedy. Frank Bannister is an architect who is involved in a car accident that results in a) his wife dying and 2) he sees spirits.

Years of all nighters produce strange side effects

Years later, when the movie begins, he is a supernatural investigator/conman who uses his ghost friends to earn a quick buck. While the movie focuses mostly on his second job, there is a subplot that involved Bannister's unfinished house. The movie is supposed to take place in the midwest, but was actually filmed in New Zealand.
