Product Description

Product Description

A family inherits an elegant steel-and-glass mansion from a deceased relative. The catch is that along with the house comes a slew of ghosts that can be seen only through special goggles.

From Amazon.co.uk

A by-the-numbers haunted house movie, albeit one with some neat twists, a couple of good performances and impressive design work, Thirteen Ghosts is a remake of the 1960 original by exploitation superstar William Castle. When ghost-hunter Cyrus (F Murray Abraham) dies his quietly decent widower nephew Arthur (Tony Shaloub) inherits his house. With almost infinite predictability, he, his teenage daughter (Shannon Elizabeth) and young son, as well as a rival ghost-hunter and Cyrus' untrustworthy tame psychic (Mathew Lillard), are trapped in the house, which is a glass labyrinth of sliding panels and shifting staircases. As the woman ghost-hunter Kalina helpfully explains, the house is "a machine designed by the devil and powered by the dead"--specifically by 12 ghosts, most of them murderously malevolent.

Shaloub and Lillard manage to make us care about this farrago and Abraham lends his few scenes his usual malignant authority, but the real star is the inventively designed house itself and the outrageous horror-comic makeup of the ghosts. This is a knowingly trashy film enjoyable on its own level.

On the DVD: Thirteen Ghosts comes with a short textual explanation of who Castle was and why he should get this sort of homage, a self-congratulatory making-of documentary and filmographies for cast and crew, as well as odd short featurettes explaining the imagined back-story for each of the ghosts. The disc has Dolby sound and is presented in a 1.85:1 widescreen ratio.--Roz Kaveney

I cant belive that so many reviewers (especially the most recent) have only given this movie one or two stars. It is a very good modern horror movie that manages to combine horror genres, mainly ghost/spooks and slasher. It has plenty of suspence and is actually quite gorey, which makes a change when compared to most 15 certificate modern horror movies.

The storyline is origional and the effects are very good. The house with the "Th13teen Ghosts" is made almost completely of glass inc. walls, floors, ceilings and it is very technical with all sorts of strange machanical devices for opening and closing certain sections of the house and the movie manages to pull this off very well without making any mistakes or making it look cheesy. This adds to the suspence of the movie. The ghosts themsleves are pretty creepy and about three of them are downright terriying!

Don't listen to bad reviews, give this movie the chance it deserves and you will be please you did.

Great ghost film, one of the best ones I've seen for ages.

Following ghost story tradition, there are sudden brief flashes of various nasty looking ghosts which made me jump the first time I saw them. A fairly simply plot which is explained well by the characters as they try to stay alive. Possibly a bit gory for a 15 certificate but definately something I'll be saving to watch again. Early on, before they'd worked out how to see the ghosts, I almost felt like yelling at them as they walked right up to the things, completely oblivious.

Being a bit of a techie, I loved the house. Full of sliding glass and metal panels (driven by a massive frightening looking load of gears - imagine looking into a gearbox created by a madman) opening and closing to reveal and block corridors all under some strange control.

Along with all the screaming and running around, they find time for some humour as well.

All in all, I really enjoyed this one.

Thirteen Ghosts is a remake of a 1960's film of the same title created by the brilliant William Castle. The film follows a man and his children who become trapped in a ghost ridden house that they've inherited from Cyrus (the man's eccentric uncle.) Trapped along with them are a psychic, a lawyer, and a ghost hunter.

Thirteen Ghosts is a bit different from your standard horror, and it goes without saying that I doubt that this it's the kind of film that everyone will find scary. But for me at least it worked. As this is probably one of the greatest ghost films I've ever seen. The bathroom scene especially, which has been done really well comes to mind. Not to mention when the lawyer 'splits.' The plot is solid and progresses well, keeping you both scared and wanting to watch more at the same time. The film is full of suspense and tension and there are more than a few very good twists throughout. The ghosts themselves are nothing less than awesome. It's obvious that a lot of time and thought has been put in their creation. A few people have mentioned how we're not really giving a back story to the ghosts in the film itself. But there is a fantastic special feature on the DVD which goes into all the depth and detail you could possibly want. It would have been nice if the information was included in the film, but I doubt that the sheer amount of story surrounding the ghosts could have been successfully integrated. The house itself is brilliant in design. Labyrinth like and packed with sliding glass doors, shifting walls and endless passages, it really looks fantastic. The special effects are perfect and really enhance the film. I'm glad that they were not over the top.

It has been a long time since I had seen a good horror movie. I saw this movie on free to air and loved it so much that I bought it on blu ray. It is a old style horror movies, it is about ghosts,haunting and it shows that from the beginning, no need for slow pace haunting horror movies with twists. Ghost hunting, a haunted house and scary ghouls abound. The scares and suspense were well done, and the characters were likeable. This is not a story about who dies next, one gory death after the another. It is about a family trying to survive together and help each other out; not each person having their own agenda and doing their own thing. A great surprise of a movie that I am glad I've eventually found out about.

Blu ray version is also very clear. All the more to scare you with, with the different distinct features and details of the 13 Ghosts.

I purchased this DVD without knowing anything about it, all i knew was that it was going too be scarey. When i got it, i peered at the back of the case and thought that it looked a bit cheap, and tacky. Then i put it into my dvd player and my views changed. The moment the animated menu appears, you know this film is going to be a stunner.
As for the story itself, it starts of with an action scene, then the real story begins, the ways the viewer is told information is simply spectacular. The way people die in the film is also amazing, never been done before. As for the 13 ghosts, well most of them are utterly terrifying although one or two are slightly unrealistic.
Well BUY THIS DVD if you like to be scared, i do. Ive watched it 3 times and i only got it this morning. Its much better than House On Haunted Hill and not a long as The Others which makes this film a must have for any "Scarey Movie" fan, YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED!!
CLICK ON ADD TO BASKET, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!!
