    So whats the deal with Thirteen Ghosts then? Anyone seen it or heard anything? I have to admit the trailer looked good, but then I guess they always do?

    Cheers :)

    Got it on order with Play. Dont know much about it, just appealed to me!!

    Seen the trailers on tv and it looks pretty good, whether or not it is, is a different matter!!

    It's in the same vein as the House On Haunted Hill remake (which I actually quite enjoyed), only this time it's worked a bit better and, for me, it came good on the promises it made with the trailer. I don't really want to say too much, as it's a film that's easy to drop spoilers on and that's not my style, but I don't think William Castle would be spinning in his grave over this one.

    I just don't know.... I've read some VERY bad reports on the DVDForums but you lot seem to like it :confused: Maybe I'll give it ago and see for myself?

    Anyone know what the sound/picture quality is like?

    Well I don't want to take anything away from those folks who enjoyed it,but i thought it was awful.The ghosts are pretty nifty and production values ok but the dialogue and acting is appalling.
    I havn't seen the original so I can't compare it although I much preffered House on Haunted Hill, if only for Geoffrey Rush hamming it up.

    It's just my opinion of course but it's fair to say I won't be picking this one up on dvd..even if the lovely Shannon Elizabeth is in it.

    thir13en ghosts is okay, better than House on Haunted Hill or The haunting, but then it couldn't be much worse. It's a tad short and ends pretty abruptly but it's reasonably entertaining, gory for its certificate and has a ghost with big babylons.

    Innit.
