Living with the Dead (released in Europe as Talking to Heaven) is a 2002 supernatural crime drama directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal and starring Ted Danson, Diane Ladd, Queen Latifah, Mary Steenburgen and Jack Palance. It was inspired by the life of medium James Van Praagh. The film first aired in the U.S. on CBS-TV. It was later rated PG-13.[1]

In the U.S., the movie was released as Living with the Dead; the working title was Talking to Heaven, and this was also the release title in Europe.


Seven dead boys are trying to communicate through James (Ted Danson), to tell their story of how they died, and how their murderer is still out there. James agrees to work alongside the detective investigating the murders, and discovers who murdered the seven boys.[2]


The movie was filmed in Vancouver, Canada.[3]
