Ghost Graduation (2012)
Promoción fantasma (original title)

"The Sixth Sense" meets "The Breakfast Club" when a teacher who sees dead people applies for work at a high school haunted by five student poltergeists who died during detention. All his life Modesto has seen dead people walking around like living people and has long accepted the assessment of others that he has a mental problem. Principal Tina Escalonilla turns that around when Modesto describes a detail (known to her) about the school spirits that no others have been able to reveal. With her school poised to be closed due to unrelenting paranormal high jinx, she begs Modesto to stay and see what he can do to ease these spirits into the next life before Founder's Day.

Ghost Graduation

Ghost Graduation (Spanish: Promoción fantasma) is a 2012 Spanish comedy film directed by Javier Ruiz Caldera.


Plot

Modesto (Raúl Arévalo) is a teacher who sees dead people, which has cost him both much money on psychiatrists and the firing from every school he has worked in. His luck changes when he is hired in Monforte and has to teach five students who have turned a prestigious school into a house of horrors. Modesto must get them to pass their pending subject and leave the school once and for all, but it will be no easy task: all five students died twenty years ago.
