Film Review - 13 Ghosts
Jeez, here's a great set in search of a movie. Put your brain on hold, this isn't going to make much sense.
Cyrus Kriticos (F. Murray Abraham) is collecting ghosts. Very deadly ghosts. Why? We don't know, but the gathering of the twelfth takes his life.
His fortune and house are inherited by his nephew Arthur (Tony Shalhoub) who has been devastated by the loss of his wife. The "fun" begins when Arthur and his two children move into the house.
As I said this is a great set. Most of the walls are glass with latin etchings. It turns out the house is a large machine which traps Arthur and his family and starts releasing ghosts who start stalking. Okay, so this is a haunted house flick.
Maybe I just don't like haunted house movies. There really isn't any more story. Just gore.
Finally, at the end Arthur must perform a self-less act to save his children. Yawn. This is a very simplistic and boring story.
Should you see this? If you like blood caked on the walls, sure. Otherwise, stay away.
