Slender but fun.
Amateurish and crude, William Castle's film is better known for its aggressive publicity campaign.
Cheesy -- and gory -- classic; no young'uns.
It falters just as most of today's movies falter: too much emphasis on effects and not enough on characters.
A dull and crudely made haunted house tale.
Too bad the ghost goggles didn't blind you from this horrid film.
Quaint, creaky, and probably worse than the remake
Dry and dusty; the good bits are doled out slowly and sparingly.
The special effects were low-budget even for their time, but there are a couple of jump-out-at-you moments and plot twists that still work pretty well.
1960s-style fun as a normal family (back then people really believed there was such a thing, a normal family, maybe in Kansas somewhere, or maybe L.A.!) moves into a haunted house armed with only a pair of special glasses with which you can see ghosts! Yeah, so hokey it's cool. But back when I was a wee youngun I was sufficiently terrorized too.
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.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
