Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
There are ghosts around us all the time. Most of them don't want to hurt us. But, there are exceptions...
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.
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.
A career low point for everyone involved. Even Matthew Lillard.
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.
Really silly horror flick, with over-the-top blood and gore and dated special effects that turn it into something unintentionally funny.
One of my favourite kinds of horror films.
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)…
If you put in the bracket of horror B movie standards it's not too bad at all. Gore and grossness at a plenty the plot is a little thing but the design and madness makes up for it. I wouldn't say it's a scare a second but there's plenty of creepiness and gross out moments to keep you entertained.
I liked the idea of the original (where you could choose to look at the ghosts by putting on special glasses). You wouldn't want to give the audience that option here, where there just isn't a lot else to see.
There is nothing about the existence of this movie that doesn't piss me right off.
Sure glad Monk was okay.
The first time I saw this I was 10 yrs old. I really like this movie. I still watch it every year on either friday 13 or Halloween before I go to a party. (and every time it happens to be on tv)
I like the story, it has a few scares, not to much tough. I love how there is an extra feature on the dvd about the ghosts. I wish they put that in the movie so there is more background to the death beings lurking around.
some ghosts are looking quite scary, others not so much. The idea for the story is great and that's why I watch it time after time.
Horror is far from being my favorite genre of film. Its not that I totally hate them or anything, but I just feel "unfulfilled" when watching a horror film. Yes, there are a few with some great jump scares and creepy shit, and I really enjoyed the "Slasher-era" of the 90's with movies like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. I just feel that the genre has gotten a bit stale over the past few years, having to resort to shock visuals in order to get a rise out of the crowd...
Enter "Thir13een Ghosts" (I hope I spelled that correctly!) from 2001, where there was a pretty decent amount of cheese and corn being served!
Might be too many ghosts, even for me.
Had some time to kill this afternoon between doing shit so randomly picked something from my Netflix watch list. I love movies that just dump you into the middle of things from the get go with no context and this has a brilliantly baffling opening scene. There's a junk yard, a psychic, a truck full of blood and some ghost catching device called The Cube? I don't even fucking know. There's no context, it's just "fuck you, here's some shit, enjoy the movie".
So this family of obnoxious dipshits are left a house by their nutty uncle F. Murray Abraham and it's haunted as all fuck x 13. This house seems to…
a solid remake of a cult classic with a surprisingly loaded cast with at the time go to campy horror female lead in shannon elizabeth and a surprising role for tony shalhoub
I still remember when I loved this movie, now it's so silly, like the way they wrote the title.
This could be a cult or classic movie in a certain time, at least I think it deserves to be.
Not scary now, but the story of all the ghosts and the plot is always intersting.
Contains every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the letterboxd database.
If there is any…

In no particular order.
