Synopsis: “A state-of-the-art remake of the classic William Castle horror film about a family that inherits a spectacular old house from an eccentric uncle. There’s just one problem: the house seems to have a dangerous agenda all its own. Trapped in their new home by strangely shifting walls, the family encounters powerful and vengeful entities that threaten to annihilate anyone in their path.” source
I wasn’t sure which movie to pick today. There’s been sooooo many reboots and remakes in the last 20-ish years alone. Thinking about horror remakes always reminds me of the scene in SCREAM 4 when Kirby is answering ghostface and she names like 20 of ’em in as many seconds. 🤣 The pickins ain’t slim.
So, ultimately, I decided on THIRTEEN GHOSTS because when I first saw it in the theater, it was both scary and funny, and there was a dash of heart involving the family who lost their mum. I also enjoyed the ghosts, their backstories and their makeup. Terrific fodder for cosplay. Plus, who doesn’t love a house with its own sinister plans.
(There are definitely worse remakes out there… *cough*Halloween2007*cough*)
