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.
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…
Insufferable, to say the least. Is this a remake? I didn't know. Set design was impressive, that's the only good thing I can say. And didn't Matthew Lillard play this part, or a variation of it, in some other forgettable movie?
OK so the production design an the character design and the creature design... A+++.
The titular ghost look great.
This cast is great.
It definitely elevates the material.
The Titular ghosts are amazing.
The flick could and should be a classic in both regard and quality
Any suspense is completely squandered by the dumb 90s Marilyn Manson editing/hyper shaky cam.
The movie is both somehow too short and too long. Other than a gray cold opening it takes a little more than a half hour for the actual fun to start. Again rushing the suspense by having the ghost encounters relegated to standing at the other end of the hall yelling or jumping out directly behind you and smashing at the glass like a hologram dark ride.
Certainly not unwatchable but very very disappointing
Thirteen Ghosts is a strange remake from the 1960 version but has a ton of imagination. Matthew Lillard and Tony Shalhoub make for an unusual duo as they battle their way though an even more unusual house made of glass and stolen spirits. The effects are the main focal point with both the cg and makeup being very good. The backstory is surprising and interesting with the ending being equally surprising. The main premise is about a father, who just lost his wife to cancer, struggling to keep the bills paid and a roof over their heads. A stroke of luck befalls him when an estranged uncle passes away and leaves a rather unorthodox house for him and his children.…
One of the few horror remakes that actually exceeds the original. The ghosts themselves are definitely the highlight here, done with practical makeup effects and enhanced by a cool production design and effective video and sound editing. Granted, the original was more corny than scary but this is a worthy update.
Creo que aunque no tenga las mejores actuaciones de la vida.. se tiene que admitir que tiene una trama muy original. No sé, me gustó muchísimo como se cuenta la historia -aunque tiene alguno que otro cabo suelto-. Pero estuvo bien, sí. Me entretiene muchísimo y me hubiera gustado que explicaran más la historia de los fantasmas.
Well, this was on tv, so I watched it.
There are things about it that have potential. A mechanical house, glass panels with spells invisibly inscribed on them to ward off angry ghosts, angry ghosts!
But it all suffers from that late 90s-early 2000s studio horror movie flatness. The story falls flat, the CGI is flat, the acting is kinda flat (sorry, Tony, you know I love you). And so it all ends up being very middle of the road stuff.
i have so much love in my heart for this ridiculous mess
reliable "silly horror" . surprise situation, dad has to rise to the challenge, SAVE THE CHILDREN, enjoy the ghost character design and the house design.
YESSSSS. So psychotic and amazing. Horror appears a little old for our time but it's still easily enjoyable.
