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.

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.
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.
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…
I like this movie. It's really dumb but really fun. The characters make some of the most boneheaded decisions ever and that's a good thing. This house sucks; I would never live in that weird shit.
About all I remembered from when this came out was the cool looking house. But that was a lot of fun, like a 90s adventure movie set in a techno-occult haunted house. Love that brass-glass-latin-incantation aesthetic. I want more like that. Ecto-steampunk?
Viel Lärm um Nichts.
Thankfully, this garbage pail ended the emerging trend of remaking William Castle movies before they reached The Tingler.
Gets a extra half star for some fun looking ghosts and that's all.
Solidifies the fact that Embeth Davidtz is the most beautiful woman alive and that Matthew Lillard might be a bug in human skin.
A cool premise ruined by terrible filmmaking. The design and concept for the ghosts was pretty cool, but this film lacks in every other aspect.
There's not much to say about this one. Shaggy tries to help Monk and his family solve the mystery of the ghosts in this ridiculous but fun horror film. I like that the film makers have tipped their hat to the original with the concept that you need these glasses to see the ghosts. It's goofy but this is a goofy horror movie so what the hell.
I also like that the twelve ghosts in here have a little backstory behind them, it's a neat little idea to throw in there.
It's got some impressive effects work but the story's a bit dull and silly.
I saw this in the theatres when it came out and liked it. Revisiting, it didn't hold up but it still is a fun flick.

Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
All the films mentioned by name in Kim Newman's definitive encyclopedia of horror films, Nightmare Movies. Well worth a read.…
