Sgt hiles

Sergeant Hiles, played by R. Lee Ermey, is a fictional character in the 1996 film The Frighteners.

Hiles is a ghost who haunts the graveyard and still instills his Master Sergeant temperament. When Frank Bannister shows up again in the graveyard attempting to drum up business, Hiles attempts to run him out.

Later when Bannister is battling Johnny Bartlett, who is in the form of the grim reaper, he passes through the graveyard. Hiles's guns are able to temporarily subdue Bartlett, but Hiles' spirit form is destroyed in the fight.
