Yes, that is the actual, legitimate spelling of the title of this movie. Not 13 Ghosts, that was the title of the 1960s original. Thir13en Ghosts. It literally takes me 3 additional seconds to type that out that should be necessary because my brain is rejecting the concept. This movie is in-sane. Admittedly I loved it when it came out because I never really liked watching horror movies after my Dad scarred me for life as a child. So when 13 Ghosts...I mean, Thir13en Ghosts came out I felt so proud of myself for being able to sit through it in the theater, I had truly advanced to manhood! But in reality I was able to sit through it because it is 15% horror and 100% bonkers, which gives us a grand total of 115% -- a mathematically unfeasible occurrence, but that is how totally ridiculous this movie is. It stars Tony Shalhoub, Matthew Lillard, Shannon Elizabeth (who gives one of the most unintentionally hilarious performances in Hollywood history), and a bunch of ghosts. The dialogue is non-stop hilarious, but the movie moves along at this quick pace that makes it oh-so-watchable. Some tidbits: 1) Matthew Lillard is a psychic who helps a crazed old man capture ghosts 2) Tony Shalhoub is a widowed father of two children who struggle with their bills and finances but somehow manage to employ an African-American nanny who stands as an example of how racism moves from the hands of white script writers to paper, and then on to the silver screen 3) Shannon Elizabeth has a smile that looks painful, and all she does is make Joker-esque faces at everything around her 4) SPELLS! 5) A gigantic, mechanical glass house 6) Razer scooters and a death-obsessed 8-year-old Give me another reason to watch this movie again.
