Thir13en Ghosts (2001)
Review by Michael Mahoney

6 / 10
This is only the second time I've seen this film (which I possess on DVD), and again, I find it underwhelming. There's plenty of good elements: the setting (a futuristic, mechanical house), many of the actors, and half the humor all make for a fun film. But what's lacking is some additional background, along with the answers to some questions that came up. I'll not give anything away, but the ending doesn't exactly strike me as a positive one, despite what one might think. And having some background origins on these ghosts would have been nice, but absolutely none is given. Many of the ghost designs are cool, but without cemented origins, it just falls flat.

Tony Shalhoub has never been a favorite actor of mine, but he does decently well here. As prone to overreaction as he was, Matthew Lillard had some of the most amusing lines throughout the film. And Shannon Elizabeth (who played Shalhoub's daughter)? I'd buy that for a dollar. She was an attractive actress, though she didn't have all that much screen time. Thir13en Ghosts is a fun enough midnight movie, I suppose, but there's not much substance to it, and overall, it's not that memorable of a film. I feel it could have been better under the direction of another writer or director. As it is, Thir13en Ghosts is below average, but only just. You could certainly do worse.
