NBC Universal has announced a release date for Peter Jackson’s “The Frighteners” on Blu-ray Disc. The 1996 film stars Michael J. Fox as architect Frank Bannister who turns into a “ghostbuster” after meeting ghosts in his unfinished house. Jackson produced, directed, and co-wrote the horror/comedy film that just about broke even at the box office.

Extras include “The Making of The Frighteners,” storyboards, My Scenes, and Pocket BLU. Total run time of the director’s cut is 2 hours and 3 minutes.
