When her possessive high school boyfriend dies in a gruesome accident, Fern Petersen’s life is thrown into turmoil. Things go from bad to worse when he returns as a love-sick ghost to kill her so they can be together for eternity. And yes that is the movie in a nutshell.Part teen romance with a twist, part Horror Comedy that works at times, yet falls flat when it wants to deliver. Clinger attempts to provide a lot of laughs, and would like to scare you at the same time, unfortunately, it didn’t quite have the actors or the budget to pull this off consistently. Over-acting is the word of the day when it comes to this film, but I think some of that was planed,  and the fact that the movie makes fun of it’self made it worth the watch. The ending was one of the most ridiculous seances that I’ve had the pleasure of watching, and a number accidentally funny bits had me smiling for an hour after. All and all, the film was worth the time spent, and keep an eye out for Fern’s sister and the sister’s boyfriend, these two made me laugh the loudest, and gave the comedic relief in all the right places.  I give it 2 1/2 Hats
