Episode 17: The Frighteners

This episode we leap with Michael J. Fox to The Frighteners – Peter Jackson’s comedy horror film from 1986. Why didn’t we just go straight to Back To The Future 2? No idea!

Season 1, Episode 17

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Michael J. Fox

From: Back To The Future

Chosen by:
Actor (Mike)
Film (Glenn)

Michael J. Fox is a difficult leaper. Do you go to a sequel? We kind of spoke about those as part of this episode, so where? Teen Wolf? It likely hasn’t aged well. We end up leaping to an early Peter Jackson horror comedy The Frighteners, where MJ plays con-man and friend to ghosts Frank Bannister.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Jake Busey

To: Starship Troopers

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Mike)

Jake Busey has appeared in about 50 films. We leap between two of his more well known films, where he goes from playing a serial killer, to a miltary infantryman in Starship Troopers. We are thankful Mike didn’t choose other Jake Busey classic Beverley Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta!
