High Spirits


Watch High Spirits (1988)

An Irish Castle, the main source of revenue and employment for the region, is about to be repossessed. The villagers and the owner attempt to turn it into a tourist hotel destination for foreign visitors by pretending it is haunted. Their early attempts are comedic failures. The American tourists turn out largely to have ulterior motives, one related to the creditor about to repossess and another a researcher attempting to expose the haunting as a fraud. The owner's mum, who disapproves, soon summons the real ghosts of the castle to take revenge on the Americans. All Hallow's eve turns into a real horror movie but with a twist that both the ghosts and the tourists experience personal catharses which improve their individual situations. Everyone ends up better off by all Saints Day with two new couples even, one consisting of a 200-year-old ghost and an American tourist.... Show more

Definitely movie from my personal top 10 of best movies ever. I really recommend to see and put High Spirits on the list of the best films, because High Spirits certainly deserve it. I sat for a long time after the end of High Spirits, reflecting on my thoughts. However, this genre may boast of one of the larger number of popular titles. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. The whole movie is still very relaxing and motivating. Don't waste your time, click on play button and watch.... Show more
