"Was Cyrus a hunter?" .. "You could say that."

Uncle Cyrus, a wealthy, enigmatic ghost hunter--and soul enslaver!--is killed while on a dangerous mission in a wrecking yard to capture the spirit of a killer known as the Juggernaut. His elaborate, mechanized estate, glass-encased and "powered by the dead," is then turned over to his nephew, a widower math teacher with a grown daughter, a young son and his sassy nanny, who could use the new digs after being rendered nearly destitute by a fire which killed the Mrs. Very loose remake of William Castle's 1960 horror-comic was directed by Steve Beck in his debut. Beck, who had previously worked as a visual effects art director, ensures a good-looking movie with amazing, goosebumpy atmospherics and assorted grotesqueries, but he hasn't yet developed a talent for handling actors. The obnoxious kid is one thing, but Matthew Lillard's over-the-top performance as Cyrus' psychic assistant--who unfortunately survives the prologue--and J. R. Bourne's shifty-eyed turn as Cyrus' lawyer are wincingly amateurish, unworthy of a major studio production. Maybe these actors thought they were in a campy movie on the level of Castle's original? In the lead role, Tony Shalhoub does a nice job, and F. Murray Abraham gets a chance to be deviously sinister as Cyrus, but nothing else here rises to the level of the film's polished look. *1/2 from ****

"Concept was good but executed poorly"

It all starts with a person who traps spirits in his house so as he dies he gives his house to his nephew and family so as they come to stay in this place the things they encounter are really scary.

Story vise the concept was really good but the execution was really poor it just fell downward even the way the movie was shown to us would have been somewhat complicated and confusing to some viewers and this movie could not even hit those scare notes.

Personally I would not recommend this movie to anyone.

Pretty lackluster horror movie

Thirteen Ghosts is a very poorly done horror movie. The film gets just about everything wrong. I love Tony Shaloub in the show everyone knows him from, Monk. But in this movie, I really didn't care for his performance or his character. He didn't really make you care about him, and the other characters were kinda hard to care about too, since the film didn't develop them in any way. The actors didn't do their characters justice and the plot didn't allow for development of them, double failure. The plot itself is pretty poor and uninteresting too, you won't finish this movie and think that it was interesting, you'll think that it was an opportunity missed, a failed attempt. The movie did nothing to keep your interest, it simply told an uninteresting story filled with equally uninteresting characters. If you're looking for a scary movie that's actually worth watching, then I suggest The Others or something like that, because this one falls flat. The only thing I can say for it is that the visuals are kind of interesting but that's the only somewhat good thing about it. 3/10 for Thirteen Ghosts.
