Thir13en Ghosts (2001)

Storyline: A family inherited an old mansion that is filled with ghostly secrets.

MV5BMTM2NzIzNTg1MV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwNjA0ODc5__V1_SX214_AL_Review (Spoils): Cyrus Kriticos passes away andleaves his house as part of the inheritance for the rest of the family. The family move into the house along with the youngest son Bobby’s (Alec Roberts) nanny (Rah Digga). They become trapped inside the house by an evil machine of locked glass walls and doors which has a connection to a gateway to Hell. During the entrapment the family are being haunted by the ghosts that were trapped within the machine and now they must survive not just the trap itself but also the undead prisoners that are now released.

This is a remake of the classic black and white film from the 50s. But with a more haunting twist the family become the sacrifice for a occult dedicated the ghost and to create and release the 13th ghost of the house. The ghost themselves are all unique and the special effects are actually not bad. The storyline though hurts the film as it can be very jumpy and there are a few plot holes. The film fell apart near the end and felt like it was over edited or pulled back on what they really wanted to do with the film.

Rating: Some scares and good effects but no gore, too be honest the movie got damn boring after a while. But we do have Shannon Elizabeth which helps to get through it all but overall it is not a classic by any means.

Review (Spoils):  Its winter time and nothing better than starting to do the winter horror films. Well let’s start with one of the worse ones.Yes we have a serial killer Jack Frost (Scott Macdonald) who was mutated in a car accident and goes to death row and comes back as a snowman to cause havoc and revenge to the sheriff that caught him.  This movie has lots of one liners and it is suppose to be taken tongue in cheek type humour. Come on it’s a killer snowman and he even can kill in the shower and not melt!

Rating:  I personally don’t get the film it was not horrible but it was pushing the line. Luckily Shannon Elizabeth is in the film so it kept me sort of entertained through this mess.Not sure how it got a sequel to boot and not sure how Michael Cooney got Shannon Elizabeth for the film but then again it was one of her first.
