Fridays Ghost Synopsis

It’s been three months since Simon’s father passed away and to date his house has been left abandoned. Simon and Friday arrive one day to find their friend, Ntombi, waiting for them. The trio enter the house to do an inspection, and Friday soon becomes convinced the place is haunted, refusing to be left alone at any time. Simon, not sharing Friday’s supernatural suspicions, finds his friend’s nervousness amusing. That night, however, Friday becomes even more convinced the house is haunted when he believes he sees a ghost in the middle of the night.

The plot thickens when Raufus, a local thug wanting Ntombi’s hand in marriage, sets his sights on owning Simon’s father’s farm, claiming he is owed money by the deceased father. But Simon has no intention of letting his father’s land go. Raufus and a fellow thug break into the house and, after being confronted by Simon, flee in terror, believing they’ve actually seen a ghost – which they in fact did!

The ghost turns out to be Simon’s late father, there to help and guide them all. Friday overcomes his insane fear of the supernatural and together with Simon and Nthombi, they follow the ghost’s instructions in order to defeat Raufus and save the day.

This film by Marcel Joubert is interesting to watch because it mixes comedy with some bit of drama and action. A big plus to the movie was the acting performances of the actors, specifically by those who played the roles of Simon and Friday. One of the funny scenes in the film was the first time that Friday saw the ghost, Simon's father. As it turns out, what they've been looking for was just actually nearby and the movie ended on a positive note.

The actor who plays the role of Friday is very  hilarious and viewers can't help but let out a laugh just by looking at his facial expressions.  I suppose he is one of the more popular local actors of that era judging from the way he's always featured in countless African films. The actor was effective in being comedic and awfully a scaredy-cat to a fault. The film has its funny moments although some of the actors need more improvement in terms of acting performances.
