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.
I really had high expectations for this movie especially as it covers something that affects me and millions of others that is extreme nightmares and sleep paralysis, a condition where your brain thinks your awake yet you are still dreaming, yet you cannot move your body, and you feel like something else is in the room with you.
Plot summary, the Morgan's who are already suffering from grief, after losing a child to cot death, and their oldest son Daniel (Lucas Bond) is suffering night terrors, and a nightmare of something trying to suck the life out of him. They go to a Sleep expert Alice Arnolds (Maggie Q) who's own life suffered a tradegy when her brother died as a young child in a sleepwalking accident. These are resurfaced again after coming in contact with the boys family, who she is trying to help, with nightmares of her younger brother tormenting her once more. With her visions and nightmares getting progressively worse, and the boys life is in serious danger as these…
A rarity that a sequel surpasses the original, but to actually better it, and out smart it, is an amazing feat. I cannot put into words how good this movie is. A film that Ryan Reynolds was born to play, a natural comedian, the one liners, the piss taking of Marvel and DC, the whole X Men theme is ripped apart again, with Wade whizzing around the School for gifted, in Professor Xavier's chair saying it smells like Patrick Stuart. The action set pieces are bigger and better, the car, moped chase scene is worth the admission price alone. A film that was so naturally funny these days are a rarity alone, it is without doubt easily one of the funniest scripts ever. With spot on casting from the inclusion of Josh Brolin as Cable, cameos from Bill Skarsgård, to Terry Crews, Rob Delany as Peter. With outstanding performances from Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Hunt From The Wildness actor Julian Dennison as Firefist. This film is as close to perfection as any movie I'll ever go and see. …
