Professor Payne asks Melinda to set up a family friend, Kylie Sloan, with a job, as she's been struggling to pay her way at Rockland University since losing some scholarships. Payne thinks she's been having problems at school because she's haunted, which is another reason he wants Kylie and Melinda to work together. They quickly learn that she is indeed haunted, and they initially suspect the ghost is her brilliant, scholarly father. That theory gives way when they discover that Kylie is being haunted in a similar fashion to several horror movies, making them think the ghost is a horror film fan. They later find out that Kylie was actually working on a horror film with a young man, Toby Bates, who had died while setting up a scene for their movie. Kylie had missed that day of filming and blamed herself for his death, but Toby's ghost didn't feel that way at all. All he wanted was for her to finish the film they were working on, and to follow her passion for horror movies.
