Hangman's Curse (2003, USA) C-106m. * D: Rafal Zielinski. Starring David Keith, Mel Harris, Leighton Meester, Douglas Smith, Jake Richardson, William R. Moses, Frank Peretti. Shoddy mystery based on a series of novels by Frank Peretti. Keith and his family investigate mysterious phenomena for the FBI, are called to action in a school, where the ghost of a former student who hanged himself is causing other students to die. Overlong, poorly acted; seems like a failed pilot for a TV series. A disapppointment from the director of FUN (1994). Also known as THE VERITAS PROJECT: HANGMAN'S CURSE.
