Daryl Hannah, Peter O’Toole and Steve Guttenberg star in this gleefully ghoulish comedy sparkling with romance and rollicking with supernatural special effects. Written and directed by Neil Jordan (Interview With the Vampire) and co-starring Beverly D’Angelo, Jennifer Tilly, Peter Gallagher and Liam Neeson, High Spirits is the most fun you’ll have in this world or the next!Impoverished Peter Plunkett (O’Toole) hatches the perfect plan to save his debt-ridden Irish castle: lure American tourists by advertising the place as haunted. But when Peter and his staff don sheets and chains to go a-haunting, they scare up more than paying guests’they arouse the real ghosts of Castle Plunkett!
