[Sam is crouching on the subway station floor, trying to move a bottle cap with his fingers. The Subway Ghost is laughing at him]
What are you doing? What the hell are you doing? You're trying to move it with your finger. You can't push it with your finger! You're dead! It's all in your mind. The problem with you is that you still think you're real. You think you're wearing those clothes? You think you're crouched on that floor? Bullshit! You ain't got a body no more, son!

The motion picture concerns upon the starring's killing (Patrick Swayze) who returns from beyond to save his lover (Demi Moore) harassed by a devious killer . He's helped by a likable psychic (Woopy Goldberg) .
In the film there are a wonderful love story , humor , tearjerker , suspense , action and a little bit of horror.
Runtime film is appropriate , isn't slow-moving but adjusted and the movie is very entertaining.
Woopy Goldberg's interpretation is fantastic and humorous , she was Oscar winner to the category for supporting cast , a very well deserved prize .
The lover couple , Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze , are riveting but overblown sweets.
Maurice Jarre musical score is fascinating but principal song is copied from Alex North's theme.
Direction by Jerry Zucker is first class , better than his previous films like ¨Airplane¨ , ¨Top secret¨ or ¨Ruthless people¨.
The movie will appeal to fantasy buffs and love stories fans.
Rating: 6,5/10 . Good and well worth watching.
