Sometimes They Come Back... Again is a 1996 horror movie, directed by Adam Grossman and based on a Stephen King short story of the same name. The movie stars Michael Gross as Jon Porter, a high school teacher who has just moved back to his hometown, the same town where his brother was killed by a gang of greasers, led by a psychopath named Vinnie (Bojesse Christopher), nearly 30 years ago.

When Jon feels like he can't escape the memories of his brother's death, strange things begin to happen. Jon's deceased brother starts appearing to him, along with the rest of the greasers who killed him. Jon soon learns that the greasers have come back to get revenge on him for causing their deaths so many years ago.

As Jon's life begins to spiral out of control, he enlists the help of a psychic named Tony Reno (Alexis Arquette) and his niece, Michelle (Hilary Swank), to try and defeat the greasers once and for all. Together, they must face the ghosts of the past and try to prevent them from wreaking havoc on the town once again.

The movie is a classic horror film, with plenty of suspense and jump scares to keep audiences on the edge of their seats. It also has a strong emotional core, as Jon struggles to come to terms with his past and must face his demons head-on. Michael Gross delivers a strong lead performance, portraying Jon as a sympathetic and relatable character who is haunted by his past.

The supporting cast is equally strong, with Alexis Arquette bringing a fun and quirky energy to the role of Tony, while Hilary Swank delivers a solid performance as Michelle. Bojesse Christopher is particularly effective as Vinnie, the psychopathic leader of the greaser gang. He is creepy and menacing, and his performance helps to elevate the horror elements of the film.

The movie has a great atmosphere, with dark and brooding visuals that add to the overall sense of unease. The special effects are also impressive, particularly the scenes involving the ghosts of the past. The movie does a good job of balancing horror and drama, making it a thoughtful and engaging film that will appeal to fans of both genres.

Overall, Sometimes They Come Back... Again is a well-made horror movie that delivers scares and emotional depth in equal measure. It's a strong adaptation of Stephen King's source material, and the performances of the cast help to elevate the movie beyond a simple horror movie. It's a must-see for fans of the genre, and it's a great entry point for those who are new to horror movies.
