High Spirits DVD


Aging aristocrat Peter Plunkett has managed to turn his ancestors remote Irish castle into a lacklustre bed and breakfast. But as the debt collectors start closing in and threaten to repossess his inheritance Peter must find a way to keep the family home from prying hands. In a ruse to draw in American Tourists Peter Plunkett advertises the hotel as the most haunted castle in Europe. Along with his faithful members of staff Peter makes a shambolic attempt at convincing a coach of holidaymakers that deathly apparitions roam the halls and corridors and banchees scream... at the stroke of midnight. What Peter didn't expect was the appearance of several actual ghosts rising from the grave and becoming romantically involved with the guests. Directed By Neil Jordan (A Company Of Wolves Interview With The Vampire) High Spirits is a brilliantly whimsical entertaining spooky comedy featuring one of film legend Peter O Toole's funniest performances. Also starring Steve Guttenberg Daryl Hannah Liam Neeson Beverly D'Angelo and Jennifer Tilly. [show more]
