Thir13en Ghosts Review
I love this movie. I love this movie so much that if they ever even think about remaking it… I will think very, VERY bad thoughts about them. This movie was perfect!
Basically the uncle Cyrus, who is this Evil Prick of Pricks, leaves this house to the family, who he’d only seen a few times. They go to see the house – not even to move in, mind you, just see the house, and the crap hits the fan almost immediately. Soon you’re watching the family fight to reunite and survive, and getting the crap scared out of you at every turn.
The Hammer, The Jackal (Left, Right), The Angry Princess (Bottom)
I mean, just look at these characters. Are they not freaky?
And then you have this dude, the guy who played Shaggy in that live-action Scooby Doo movie, who puts on one helluva performance.
Okay, so at this point its probably clear this isn’t as much of a review as me proudly showing off one of my favorite movies.
But, seriously, they take a ridiculous premise and give us an AWESOME set, terrifying ghosts, and actors who – if not all the time – nail it 90 percent of the time. Its a good ole jump-scare movie whose main character is none other than Tony Shalhoub, Monk himself!
Thir13en Ghosts takes itself just serious enough to work, yet gives us some laughable moments like when the guy gets sliced in half, by the glass, and first the front half falls, and then the back half. Its an awesome movie that anyone who loves ghosts movies should watch! It doesn’t even suffer from typical time-inflation (ie: being too damned long for no good reason.)
