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 "designed by the devil and powered by the dead" to open the Eye of Hell. Aided by Dennis, a ghost hunter, and his rival Kalina, a ghost rights activist out to set the ghosts free, the group must do what they can to get out of the house alive.

13. Me Doing This
I figured since we are so close to Halloween that it was time to watch a "maybe scary" movie. This is a remake of 1960's 13 Ghosts....although if my memory serves me right there is not much in the original movie that shows up here. In this one Tony Shalhoub inherits a haunted house from his uncle F. Murray Abraham.
There are 12 ghosts in the basement in the house. The 13th ghost is the key to the solving the mystery of the movie. While the movie characters are in the basement, the movie offers up some decent thrills....but overall this is not a very scary movie. The story in the movie just seems silly too. Overall....this is a very average movie. Having seen both versions....I would say watch the 1960 version and skip this version.
Somebody spells 'thirteen' incorrectly and a haunted house slices a lawyer in half.
Stereotypical sassy black chick: "Did the lawyer split?"
The cinematic equivalent of being shot in the face with cow manure.
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.
A career low point for everyone involved. Even Matthew Lillard.
I remember having seen Thir13en Ghosts a long while back and vehemently despising it and upon a revisit nowadays my opinion of it did not improve in the slightest. Instead I found even more reason for myself to dislike it let alone remember everything that I absolutely loathed about this film. It is not the worst horror film I have ever seen but considering the fact that this is a Dark Castle production, it should not be a surprise how dreadful it is.
One thing that's worth noting is how less than five minutes in, Thir13en Ghosts showcases some of the worst editing that you'll ever have the misfortune of watching if you even are…
This is not good.
"Did the lawyer split?" goes one throwaway joke in the movie's middle.
Yes, and maybe the audience should have as well.
What's remarkable about "Thirteen Ghosts" is how beautiful the house-that-is-actually-a-puzzle-box can appear at times... it's the best part of the movie and isn't really a character to itself, yet has more personality than almost the other characters combined. And yet the actual architecture is in complete juxtaposition to what you would expect for an archaic collection of old Latin spell inscriptions, an aged leatherbound ghostbook, and a movie that's supposed to be scary.
Or is it? I spent much of the movie trying to decide whether it was actually supposed to frighten me or whether it was some kind…
I like these kind of movies.
Amazing set & production design, no scares.
And people say The Witch isn't a horror movie.
Thirteen Ghosts is a fun and confident horror flick that offers creativity and a cool mystery. There’s lore in this film. I love being at the mercy of the world where I’m not sure what is possible or what has happened in the past. The characters reveal the history and functionality of these ghosts in a straightforward yet effective manner.
The set pieces are unique and radical. Although the acting doesn’t hold up well the practical effects sure do. The gore is dispersed and effective throughout due to the wonderful team at KNB effects. Overall, Thirteen Ghosts is a fun watch that rewards open-minded viewers.
La he vuelto a ver después de mogollón de años y bueno... Ahora ya no da tanto cague, pero sí sigue siendo original (¡sale una negra y no muere!) y entretenida.
pretty bad. pretty bad
Messy script that puts "Monk" and other annoying people - who don't really bother trying to act convincingly - into grave danger amidst a bunch of more or less angry ghosts. Naah. Some nice visuals do not make this one good.
