Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
Misery loves company
Arthur and his two children, Kathy and Bobby, inherit his Uncle Cyrus's estate: a glass house that serves as a prison to 12 ghosts. When the family, accompanied by Bobby's Nanny and an attorney, enter the house they find themselves trapped inside an evil machine.
A career low point for everyone involved. Even Matthew Lillard.
No one will ever accuse "Thir13en Ghosts" of being a great horror fim; but it has no pretensions of being a great horror film. What it wants be to is a horror thrill-ride, and, at that, it succeeds. The film is a slick, somewhat corporate, effects-driven funhouse that is exciting and jolting. The story is a preposterous but engaging, and the backstories of the KNB designed and executed ghosts are worth digging into. Overall, "Thir13en Ghosts" is solid, scary fun.
These days horror movies are all about zombies, vampires, crazy serial killers and all of that good stuff it seems like ghosts are a horror idea long gone and forgotten but Thir13en Ghosts is a nice little reminder that ghosts too can be pretty damn brutal and scary in their own rights. I miss ghost movies... well I guess there is Paranormal Activity but I couldn't stand the first one and have had no desire to watch the others.
In Thir13en Ghosts after a relative dies everything he owns including his house and everything within is left to his Nephew and his family. Without hesitation they move into the house not knowing that is is haunted by thirteen (or thir13en)…
I should have known better than to trust recommendations I overhear between Blockbuster employees and customers, not to mention a film that uses a number within its title for no apparent purpose, aside from sidestepping copyright infringement. At least, at times, the special effects looked great, but sadly there are only so many ways Tony Shaloub can deliver the phrase "what is going on" before it becomes grating.
Silly, sparkly, spooky nonsense.
F! MURRAY! ABRAHAM!
The biggest pile of cack I have seen in a while, and I watched the Justin Bieber documentary yesterday.
I am not really a one for modern day horrors, they tend to be really slow, repetitive and oh so predictable.
13 ghosts, however, for me, was a good, creepy and original idea.
a house made of glass with every inch of it inscribed with occult glyphs, a medium as a care taker and 13 really disturbing ghosts trapped inside of the glass house, trying to get out. and the relatives of the dead owner trapped inside!
let the slaughter begin!
"13 Ghosts" is the loudest movie since ''Armageddon.'' Flash frames attack the eyeballs while the theater trembles with crashes, bangs, shatters, screams, rumbles and roars. Forget about fighting the ghosts; they ought to attack the sub-woofer.
The experience of watching the film is literally painful. It hurts the eyes and ears. Aware that their story was thin, that their characters were constantly retracing the same ground and repeating the same words, that the choppy editing is visually incoherent, maybe the filmmakers thought if they turned up the volume the audience might be deceived into thinking that something was happening.
When the action pauses long enough for us to see what's on the screen, we have to admire the art direction,…
Fine plot,actors were fine, but it had a really freaky vibe to it.
Great design work, but far too repetitive and cheesy to work as an effective horror film.
You totally get, what you expect... But with a great location and some good actors (looking at you, Tony Shalhoub!)!
The first time I watched this film I was about 11 or 12. I was terrified, to say the least. I watched it again probably about three years ago, and the finally again on the 21st. Being such a big Tony Shalhoub fan, I'm not sure if this is really that great a fan or if I'm just biased. But, I love it.
Cool sets, effects and a campiness that fits in well. Not a bad story either, and the ghosts were really well made. I can see why it's not considered to be very good, but I had fun watching it and that's all that really matters to me with movies like this.
THIRTEEN GHOSTS was Dark Castle Entertainment's second William Castle remake, having launched in 1999 with HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL. It feels largely the same in terms of tone and production values, with a clear intention to be a 'cinematic thrill ride' and have as much fun as possible with its juicy, ridiculous concept. That it fails is down to a few key problems, but it's an entertaining misfire.
Widowed loser Arthur Kriticos (Tony Shalhoub) inherits a house from his late uncle Cyrus (F. Murray Abraham), the black sheep of the family who squandered their fortune. Arthur immediately relocates his impoverished family—daughter Kathy (Shannon Elizabeth), son Bobby (Alec Roberts), and nanny Maggie (Rah Digga)--to their new abode, only to realise it's…
