SPOOKS AND SPIRITS - (Ófeigur: Gengur Aftur)
A comedy-fantasy written and directed by Ágúst Guðmundsson (Seagull’s Laughter).
Starring: Gisli Örn Garðarson, Laddi, Ilmar Kristjánsdóttir

When Anna and her boyfriend Ingi decide to sell the house Anna has recently inherited from her late father Ófeig, the father’s ghost appears and makes one thing perfectly clear: his house won’t be sold! Prospective buyers are chased away by very strange events, which confirm that Ófeig, the ghost, is no different from what he was in life: a charming, but egoistic, alcoholic womanizer. Ingi tries to exorcise Ófeig, but the poltergeist world proves a tricky one. Instead of getting rid of Ófeig, another ghost is raised – a jealous former girlfriend of Ófeig. The dead lovers’ bickering makes life in the house intolerable, the ghosts get ever more forceful, and selling the house is out of the question. But sometimes even ghosts can get too greedy. When Ófeig tries to drag an innocent lady into his dimension, the situation calls for drastic measures.
