    Synopsis


    13 Ghosts
    This haunted house chiller is the second feature from Dark Castle Entertainment, the mid-budget outfit put together in 1999 to remake the cheesy horror genre pictures of William Castle by his daughter, Terry Castle, and producers Gilbert Adler, Robert Zemeckis, and Joel Silver. Financially ravaged and widowed by a fire that is consuming him with guilt, Arthur Kriticos (Tony Shalhoub) is left to raise two kids on his own: beautiful teenager Kathy (Shannon Elizabeth) and grade school student Bobby (Alec Roberts). Good news suddenly drops into their lives when a lawyer visits and reveals that they have inherited a lavish home from a late uncle, Cyrus (F. Murray Abraham), an eccentric ghost hunter. The Kriticos family moves into the remote house only to discover its odd secret: the dwelling contains a state-of-the-art, elaborate system of moving glass walls that trap spirits inside. Soon the ghosts, which can only be seen through the use of special high-tech spectacles, are loose in the elaborate contraption and are none too thrilled about their predicament. With the exits sealed, the family members try to learn the secret of Uncle Cyrus' bizarre mansion and survive supernatural assaults with the help of sassy housekeeper Maggie (Rah Digga), neurotic psychic Rafkin (Matthew Lillard), and Kalina (Embeth Davidtz), an activist championing the civil rights of ghosts. The eyeglasses through which the spirits can be viewed in Thirteen Ghosts (2001) were part of a ballyhoo gimmick involving pairs of spectacles handed out to audiences for screenings of the 1960 original, which was presented in "Illusion-O." ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      13 Ghosts is a really good movie. When I first saw what it was about and that it was a remake from a movie that used 3D glasses. In fact if you wore them would make the movie scarier by letting you see the ghosts. I was pretty skeptical. They incorporate that aspect into this remake very well and the ghosts look pretty scary. Someone getting attacked by a ghost that you couldn't see because the other person wasn't wearing the special glasses was pretty neat. Great actors and great story, all in all this is a great movie.

      I really enjoyed this movie about a decade ago when it came out. The concept of a special house was intriguing to me and I liked the way the movie was shot. Watching it again, I can tell the difference between the computer graphics of then vs now, of course, but still find the story pretty gripping despite the little bit of over-acting by a few of the actors.

      remake of the original movie took out most of the humor and added a lot of horror upon horror. would be a good movie to watch around Halloween, but not sure you would want young kids to watch. has a lot of violence, but i loved it !!!

      This movies has great suspense, and the illusions alone, will keep you on your feet. It's one of those you sit there on the edge of your seat the whole movie and say "NO, don't go down there". Great acting, I found myself watching it more than once.

      This is an older movie I remember really enjoying when it was originally released. Although I didn't love it as I originally did. I still really enjoyed it
