Thir13en Ghosts released today 26th October 2001, celebrating its 15thbirthday, produced by Dark Castle, directed by Steve Beck. Certificate15, running time 90 minutes.
This film is celebrating its 15 birthday today Thir13en Ghosts, Part of the Dark Castle Experiment, founded in 1999 by Joel Silver, Robert Zemeckis and Gilbert Adler, specialising in releasing horror movies, with a lot of remakes, such as House On Haunted Hill, House Of Wax, and this one again a remake. A film that I always thought was poor, being more about the look of the film and the ghosts, than any storyline, a poor mans Hellraiser you may call it. With horrible looking ghosts, with great makeup effects, but with zero scares came with it. Dreadful miscasting never helped this film either, starring some great stars not!!! With Mathew Liilard, Shannon Elizabeth, Embeth Davidtz, Tony Shalhoub, even F Murray Abraham cannot save this mess of a film. With a budget of $42,000,000, and barely making that budget back, only with DVD sales worldwide that finally it did make the movie back its budget, but currently only holding a 14% approval on rotten tomatoes, the film is quite simply put.... "crap" but with the best scene with a man being sliced in half by two panes of glass is the only decent gore moment in this movie.
Ghost hunters enter this scary house to trap a dangerous ghost called the Juggernaut,
With a stupid tale of a haunted house with 12 malevolent spirits trapped waiting to be released from different rooms of the house, forcing the spirit hunters deeper into this maze of rooms In the house, to be confronted by a different spirit, each having a different level of scariness, with the final ghost being one of the party, unlucky to die in this haunted house.
A poor film in every sense, one I never liked, and one film I really couldn't be bothered if I didn't see it again, I'm betting a lot of people like this film, well I for one didn't, and in fairness hated most of the crap films this horror production company produced, and I'm finding it hard to name any film this production company produced that I did like, come on it produced Gothika, RocknRolla, Ghost Ship surely I've just won my own argument.

"Ghost Files" - 12 vignettes profiling the ghosts.
I came across this trailer on YouTube yesterday, and it is doing the rounds again on social media, a trailer first showing in 2015, that got everyone talking " is this for real" " this can not be a film can it?" As it turns out no, it is a trailer that is well made, but certainly is not going to be a film anytime soon.
A one joke trailer about a randy ghost intent on jerking men off, using handjobs, I'm surprised the tag line wasn't "Cumming soon".
This was obviously made by men with a running narrative that women cannot give a decent handjob, and having them do the deed is worse than death, instead you have a ghost who wants to jerk all men to death.
It is as awful as you'd expect it to be, but I still found myself chuckle a few times, it is rude, crude, insinuating, and in fairness harmless fun, a film if made I would actually probably watch, it certainly looks better than the recent Cabin Fever, Evil Dead 2013.
Tree is about to have a very bad day, again, and again and again.
College Grad Tree, a self centred bitch, who you take an instant dislike to, who is foul to everyone.
Treats everyone like dirt, then wonders why someone would want her dead. With a groundhog Day loop thing going on every time she is murdered she has to live through the same Monday the 18th, until she can find out her wants her dead, solve her own murder, and maybe become a better person in the mean time.The thing is I really wanted to hate this movie, but I couldn't, because of the performance from Jessica Rothe as Tree, in her first scream queen role, starring previously in La La Land, and Netflix's Parallels.
She is so likeable and believable in the role, although playing the bitch perfectly, she is deep down a damaged soul, still mourning the death of her mother, and her grief is her anger towards fellow People.
With some inventive kills, and no matter what Tree does, the day always ends in her death, with …
A film that strangely has been long forgotten, from 1980, and a film that has no mention about any remake or reboot. That is how this good film has been left on the shelf, compared to other slashers of that decade. Strange as it has possibly the best onscreen kills, with amazing practical effects from Gore master Tom Savini.
A jilted soldier returns home from world war 2, hearing just before that his girlfriend has replaced him with another man. At the graduation ball of 1945, Rosemary is brutally slain alongside her new boyfriend. Shocking the town, that another ball has been postponed for 35 years. It is now 1980 the ball has been agreed once more, and the jilted soldier is not happy and decides to slay the party goers once more.
Formally known as the Prowler especially in the States, but changed to Rosemary's Killer in the UK. The film apart from the great Gore effects is quite average though, and probably why it has never been remade. With the jilted soldier in…
