I see that most people aren't nearly as fond of this one as I am, so I feel compelled to write why I *did* like it.First, the visuals were really good. Many thrillers have to avoid showing detail about the villains because details end up being fake looking or difficult. This is one of several reasons why so many take place at night. Thir13en Ghosts works around that by giving the protagonists special glasses which allow them to see the ghosts. It's a lot less goofy than seeing it written in this review makes it sound and it means that the movie doesn't have to be shot in the <more>
depths of night.Second, the story was up to the task and original. I'll not dwell on this too much as the story centers around the house and the house is one of the main characters in the movie, but suffice it to say I was pleased with the twists.This one isn't going to win any awards, but it's a really solid film for it's genre.
This movie was fantastic. The acting was good and the plot was good. I really loved how they used actual people to play the parts of the ghosts. That was really cool. It's not your typical ghost movie and that's what I love about it. The ending was a bit iffy. I didn't like how Matt, "Dennis Rafkin" died. He was a really well thought out character. With the ghosts being released at the end, I am definitely sure that there wont be a sequel to this. But if there was and it could hold up stronger than this one, and use the same family, I think it would be a great one. I <more>
personally wouldn't classify this movie as a sci-fi film, but due to the reluctant ghosts, you will probably see it air on sci-fi a couple times. If you are into ghosts movies, you should watch this. It is worth your while. The acting is great. It really holds up. Not your average ghosts film. It does lack horror but I credit it with being quite a bit "freaky." I don't suggest you go out of town in hopes to find it, but definitely pick it up for rent over the weekend. 6/10
The studio couldn't have picked a better release date. This is the perfect time to release a movie like this. Releasing this right before Halloween was an excellent decision. I hadn't seen the 1960 original before seeing this, but after I saw this I quickly decided to go rent the original. Anyway, there are so many things that make this movie great, although I will only list a few of them: the special effects, the acting, the music, the director's awesome camera movements, the fantastic writing, the occasional jokes [which are hilarious], and the suspense. It's one of the most <more>
inventive and visually impressive movies I have seen in a while. Well worth seeing.
One of the best films I have seen in a while... (by QueenxRock)
This film is very much like Marmite. It makes you sick to the back teeth because it's just that bad, or it makes you twitch every time you see in the paper that Thir13en Ghosts is on. I, myself, fall into the latter category. I loved every second of this film! I saw this a few weeks back, I was bored and I was flicking stations on TV. Luckily, the film was only just starting. The scrapyard scene had me hooked. One downside to this was that Cyrus Kriticos F. Murray Abraham got killed off quite quickly. I would have liked to see a little more about his past, but then that would be <more>
trailing from the path of this story. Notwithstanding, the very feel that this film gave me was astounding. The makeup on all the ghosts had me looking away at times. I thought it quite strange that the ghost we saw the most of was naked to the eye, there should have been a bit of camera-share there. As we are really starting to get into this story, we find out that Kalina Embeth Davidtz , the woman who is also trapped in the house, is actually helping the ghost of Cyrus. A small problem there, is he dead or not? He had a chunk of metal wrapped around his neck, yet he can be seen without the ghost-seeing glasses. Perhaps it's just me, I may have had my fingers clasped around my eyes.Brilliant film, I completely recommend this for anyone who wants a good fright and some small laughs.
A cool thriller where a family inherits a fascinating house made completly of glass only to discover that not only do the walls move around and rearrange themselves but the place is over run by pretty nasty ghosts. Featuring Tony Shalhoub as the father along with always appealing Shannon Elizabeth as his daughter, always nutso Matthew Lilliard as a psychic and other oddball sorts. Has enough scares and atmosphere to make a pretty darn good Halloween vieweing experince. GRADE: B+
Some great scary fun (by atinder)

great scary scenes and some of the ghost in this movie were Absolutely terrifying, outstanding makeup effect for the ghost, this movie some good gory deaths but the movie is not packed with gore.This movie is a really good fun horror movie, the acting from the cast was really good. I am going to give this movie 8 out of 10
I saw the original 13 Ghosts when I was 12 years old and it scared me half to death. They gave you a viewer so when the ghosts appeared on screen you looked thru one color and could see them, but if you looked thru the other color you couldn't see them. Now that I see that movie again I wonder what I was scared of. But I loved all of William Castle's movies. He was the master of gimmicks and chills in his day. Now comes a new version of the old story, packed with gore and shocks galore in living color. No glasses or special optical device handed out at the theater this time. The film <more>
hits you with a punch to the senses in the opening scenes before settling down to a poor man struggling to make ends meet after the tragic death of his wife. He later learns that his dear wife's "ghost" has been captured by his eccentric uncle and is kept in a special cage in the basement. While vastly different from the original, this film can stand on its own. It is a complete retelling of the story with great action, special fx, acting and a few laughs thrown in as well as some references to the original. If you are just looking for some mindless supernatural fun and maybe even a moral love is stronger than evil this film is for you.
Granted remakes usually suck but this had enough gore and split tale innovations that made it quite entertaining. The acting was a bit shaky but not everyone can be a Julia Adams The Creature From The Black Lagoon > You had a few scenes that make you jump. Okay killing sequences, and some twists make it a good entertaining horror flick. Tony Shalhoub would not have been even in my top 20 to play the father of the family that is suppost to move in but I'm not sure who I would have put in his place but definitely NOT him. F. Murray Abraham has delivered a great performance and well <more>
Shannon Elizabeth .......well enough said. Mathew Lillard does a wonderful job as usual we can expect great things from him. There are a few lines that are real shaky that make you think "How Dumb for them to say that" BUT its a good film to watch for an evening of suspense and a little gore check it out.
The Most Original and Terrifying Horror Movie That I Have Ever Seen! (by movies2u)
13 Ghosts is my all-time FAVORITE horror movie. Not to mention, it scared the crap out of me, and yet the movie was so original and great. When a father Tony Shalhoub and his teenager Shannon Elizabeth and young Boy Alec Roberts lose their house and mother in a fire, the family moves in to a small apartment with a nanny Rah Digga . the, by surprise the father's Uncle Cyrus F. Murray Abraham dies, and leaves the family a huge mansion, the family is very excited. And when they go to see the house, they meet Rafkin Matthew Lillard , who worked for Cyrus in a ghost hunting <more>
buisiness. Now, when the family enters the house, they ar dazzled by it's beauty. The walls are made of glass and there are many great rooms and fabulous work done in the house. Then, when the house closes up, Rafkin tells the family that there are 12 ghosts in the mansion, and the 13th one is unknown. Now, they must find a way out, or get slaughtered by the 12 blood hungry ghosts, and must uncover the 13th Ghost.This movie is a definite horror movie, and it isn't no slasher movie, it is real horror. If you liked "House on Haunted Hill 1999 version " or "The Haunting 1999 version ", you will LOVE this horror movie. It is the greatest haunted house thriller in years. I give13 Ghosts a 100 out of 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : : :
