Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Below Average "The drop-dead fact is, this ornate but eerily unspooky production is designed by Hollywood vampires and powered by demographics.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Below Average "There's something eerily familiar about his motion picture - like most horror movies that try to cash in on the mood of the Halloween season, this one has more corn than scares. And, like the Jack O'Lantern glowing feebly from the front porch, the script for Thirteen Ghosts is hollow.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Poor "The experience of watching the film is literally painful. It hurts the eyes and ears. Aware that their story was thin, that their characters were constantly retracing the same ground and repeating the same words, that the choppy editing is visually incoherent...''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Above Average "..., this efficient but soulless funhouse ride eschews suspense in favor of frantic scrambling from disturbing specters, like the naked female ghost who lurks around bloody bathtubs. But it zips along at a brisk pace and some of the ghost effects are creepy.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

There were quite a few negative comments about this movie, but most rated it quite high. I see this every once in a while. It seems that people enjoy the movie, but make negative comments about it because it could have been even better.

Surprisingly, about half of the teen males rated this movie fairly low. That's not too good for this type of movie since it's targeted at teens. Teen females enjoyed it a bit more, but there were half as many of them as teen males so that might make a difference.

A little better than half of the older males enjoyed the movie a lot. The rest rated it pretty low. Some even hated it.

Females seem to be the ones who enjoyed "Thirteen Ghosts" the most. Better than three quarters of them in each age group really liked the movie. Only a few rated it just a bit on the low side with a rating of "Good" and "Fair."

This is a tough one to predict who might enjoy it. All I can do is suggest that you read all we offer for this movie before deciding to see it.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Arthur Kriticos (Tony Shalhoub) and his two children, Kathy (Shannon Elizabeth) and Bobby (Alec Roberts), have lost everything but each other. Jean (Kathryn Anderson), the wife and mother of the family, perished in a fire that left its survivors with nothing.

Nothing, that is, until out of nowhere Arthur inherits a magnificent glass house from his mysterious, eccentric Uncle Cyrus. Made entirely of glass and steel, the house is a shining wonder of modern architecture, all dazzling open spaces and clean, sharp lines. As they explore their new home, admiring its elegantly etched glass walls, Arthur and the children can hardly believe their good fortune.

What they don't know is that this house of light holds a dark secret within.

The new tenants soon discover that something hideous is imprisoned behind those crystal-clear walls. They begin ominously shifting and reshaping the rooms as they slide, trapping the family and unleashing 13 ghosts - horribly disfigured by their deaths - to stalk them. One by one, the evil spirits are released to hunt and terrorize their captives.

Assisted by tortured clairvoyant Rafkin (Matthew Lillard) and the beautiful Kalina (Embeth Davidtz), a militant activist determined to free the  imprisoned spirits, Arthur and the children realize that they have been lured into a deadly trap.

If they are to leave the house alive, the mortal inhabitants must solve its ancient riddle - a puzzle that contains the key to their imminent salvation...or destruction.
