Frank Bannister (Michael J. Fox) is a private psychic detective in a small Northern California town. Years ago he had a near death experience when he lost his wife in a car accident. Since that time he's been able to communicate with the spirits of dead people roaming the land. Instead of using his powers for good, he recruits a few dead ghosts - Cyrus, Stuart, and the now retired Judge ghost (John Astin) - to haunt peoples houses so he can make a living. Crossing the ultimate barrier into a world where all fears are realized, Frank's nightmares become all too real ... and true evil does not die.
