Critic Reviews for 13 Ghosts
Amateurish and crude, William Castle's film is better known for its aggressive publicity campaign.
It falters just as most of today's movies falter: too much emphasis on effects and not enough on characters.
Audience Reviews for 13 Ghosts
More funny than scary but for fans of old API films this one has a certain campy charm.
This is a fun little horror movie from Castle, it's about a family that moves to a haunted house that has 13 ghosts, and it's fun for the whole family. I really like this movie.
Another William Castle underachiever. A family on the edge of financial ruin inherits a fully furnished home....and some ghosts. I guessed the big climax 1/2 through the film. I fell asleep a couple of times and still wasn't lost when I woke back up. That says a lot, doesn't it? I must give credit where credit is due in that Castle went out on a cinematic limb and used actual hardwood boards as actors rather than people. And got pretty good performances out of them too. What was that? Those WERE people? Oh. Never mind then.
