2.0 out of 5 stars Better than purgatory..., 14 Jan. 2014
This review is from: The Haunted Mansion [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Realtor workaholic Jim Evers and his wife and business partner Sara gets a call late one night from mansion owner Edward Gracey, who is looking to sell his property.

Smelling the biggest deal of their career, Jim, Sara and their two children pay a visit to the mansion, located on a remote bayou.

A torrential thunderstorm strands the Evers family in the old mansion with the brooding, eccentric Gracey, his mysterious butler, Ramsey, and a variety of residents both seen and unseen.

At first Jim scoffs at Gracey's stories about ghosts and hauntings, until he unearths the mystery of the mansion and finds that his wife Sara has unexpected connections to its haunted past....

The thing is when you base a film on a theme park ride, you cannot help but use the same story and narrative. This film could have been done very seriously and been made into something that could have had the potential to be quite scary, but even Disney wouldn't take that gamble.

The film is fine, Murphy is the reason to watch this, but the film is rarely funny and never scary. We move from set piece to set piece, with okay effects and learning that work isn't everything, but family is for life.

Stamp is good, but looks embarrassed, and it gets a little too long in the tooth.
