THE PLOT

A group of friends meet once a week to share ghost stories and terrifying tales of the supernatural. Little do they know that they are living one. As a ghost from their past as returned for revenge, out to kill them and all they hold dear. With two crazed criminals on her side can any of them escape alive?

THE OPINION:

This is got to be one of the scariest ghost stories in the history of the movies. Plus a great cast which includes Fred Astaire. But the flash back that explains who the ghost is that is killing them did get a little long and dragged out.

I GIVE IT (9 STARS)
