In this oddball horror/comedy from New Zealand, a hapless stoner who can see ghosts and a recently dead super-cop on the trail of a serial killer team up to save the day, but can they overcome their differences and work together to save lives … and deaths? Directionless slacker Dane “Marbles” Marbeck can see ghosts, thanks to a homemade drug: his late father’s neurological medication mixed with marijuana. Officer Jayson Tagg, a wannabe super-cop tracking down a serial killer, ends up murdered. So when Marble’s mum plans to sell the family farm, and the only way of buying the house from her is to take the money offered by Tagg in exchange for his help, Marbles reluctantly accepts. The unlikely duo of weed-loving medium and uptight ghost cop struggle to reconcile their difference while they navigate their way through a comically convoluted gauntlet of ghouls, perverts, a mysterious hooded figure and an unexpected shot at love. It soon becomes clear the only way Marbles and Tagg will solve the case with their souls intact is to confront their deepest regrets and get over themselves in order to work together. (Dir. by Hayden J. Weal, 2020, New Zealand, 85 mins., Not Rated)
