By any objective accounting, Thirteen Ghosts is exactly a baker's dozen too many -- this is a zero of a film.

The drop-dead fact is, this ornate but eerily unspooky production is designed by Hollywood vampires and powered by demographics.

Beck maintains a satisfyingly high level of heebie-jeebies throughout.
October 26, 2001
A nicely nasty Halloween treat.
October 26, 2001
Clever one-liners supplant the lack of frights with cackling -- which you might as well do since, by the end of the movie, it's clear that the joke's on you.
October 26, 2001
A B-grade horror picture seems to be a B-grade horror picture no matter how many studio bucks and digital effects you throw at it.

For a movie called Thirteen Ghosts, this movie is surprisingly soulless.
October 26, 2001
Little did Elizabeth know that after starring in the spoof Scary Movie, she'd soon find herself in another parody of bad horror films -- one that doesn't know it is one.
October 26, 2001
Ghosts is too distinctive-looking to dismiss out of hand, but it would help to be able to look through a magic viewfinder (or maybe magic eraser) and make its script disappear.
October 26, 2001
Although not for the faint of heart, it's a potent -- and very tricky-treat.

The experience of watching the film is literally painful. It hurts the eyes and ears.

October 25, 2001
Has only about three ghosts worth of scares.
October 25, 2001
A production so mammoth in its stupidity that it took two studios, Warner Brothers and Columbia Pictures, to wrestle it to the screen.

The set design of Thirteen Ghosts may have been expensive, but its thrills are cheap.
October 25, 2001
More bark than creepy bite.
October 25, 2001
Tries to combine humor with ghostly horror but excels at neither.

Spectacularly stupid.
October 25, 2001
All in all, the technical credits outshine the characters, which is never a good idea.
October 25, 2001
While 13 Ghosts, a remake of Mr. Castle's 1960 haunted-house schlocker, isn't a bad movie per se, its austerity and predictability show what a cheesy genius the man was.
October 25, 2001
Yuck.

Like most horror movies that try to cash in on the mood of the Halloween season, this one has more corn than scares.

Beck directs a script so damaged it's a wonder that the Kriticos family and their annoying nanny (Rah Digga) don't escape through plot holes.
