The Haunted Mansion Reviews
A house salesman gets called to sell a haunted house. Taken from the Haunted Mansion ride at Disney's. Delightful tale with a happy ending.
Murphy and his entire family specialize in a real estate agency, and they visit a mansion that DEFINITELY doesn't look suspicious. Basically, Murphy wimps out when meeting the not-so scary inhabitants of the mansion and Scooby Doo-like hijinks please nobody. Murphy also tries to pull off this careless like father performance who cares more about his business than his family, which based on his film decisions, sounds accurate in reality. Not of much a story here, basically Murphy running and screaming and the suspicious owner of the mansion, Master Gracey, hitting on Murphy's wife, who he believes is a ghost of a girl he loved 300 years before. Whoops.
With an awful story, awful effects, and annoying to the bone characters, the Haunted Mansion is one of the worst, if not THE worst, Murphy film to date. Nothing is chilling, obviously since it's a Disney film, except characters like Jennifer Tilly's simply amazing performance as a magic ball, singing statues, and many others you'll hate. This was a BIG mistake, if you want anything better, ride the actual attraction - it'll save you an hour and a half you'll regret.
