13 Nights of Halloween:
Night #6: Thir13en Ghosts

Tonight we have "Thir13een Ghosts" a remake of a film of the same
Thir13en Ghostsname. The original came from director William Castle and involved special goggles that allowed characters in the movie to see ghosts, and cardboard glasses for the viewing audience to don when people on screen did. The remake comes from Dark Castle Entertainment, just like last night's movie. It also boasts K.N.B. EFX Group on the special effects, and what effects they are! The thirteen ghosts are spectacular, from their histories, to their visual appearances. There are no glasses needed for this remake. I have to say, this movie is a real doozy. Let me tell you a bit about it.

First off on the wow scale we have the set(s) for the bulk of the movie, a big mansion kind of house with all of the walls made of out unbreakable glass. The walls have weird writing all over it when seen through the special glasses that the characters find in scattered rooms. Besides being a nightmare for the filming crew this mansion is a real house of horrors. Then of course we have the ghosts, which I touched on already. Tony Shaloub stars as the new owner of the house and proves there was life before Monk (which I've never really watched). We also have Matthew Lillard as a psychic, and man oh man, if this isn't a perfect role for him and maybe even a better performance than he gave us in Scream. So, what are you waiting for? Watch this movie already!

Mood: hyper.
Music: Killers by Iron Maiden.
