I’m not big on horror movies. I gotta say like the Chucky movies, but this one is not bad. I do admit it made me jump though, and that’s "Thirteen Ghosts". It’s basically about a guy inheriting a house that just happens to have belonged to a ghost hunter who locked these ghosts inside the house. This family doesn’t realize that until one by one they get released. The last ghost is the dreaded juggernaut. Can this family save themselves, get out of the house and stop these ghosts from being re-released into the world? Well, you have watch for yourselves and find out. I mean since its Halloween month, I'd say there’s no better time.
Dave - Dave Christy loves horror, music, documentaries and more. He is also the co-runner of several fan based groups including Morningstars (THE Lucifer fan group also run by Melanie), and now is a member of the VIPers Spotlight Lounge team for Melanie's Muses.

All movies are a sign of the times of when they were made. With a lot of them, you can probably guess when they were made based on the actors, soundtrack, themes, etc. "Thirteen Ghosts" is no exception. Matthew Lillard, shortly after his breakout role in "Scream" and right before he found his calling as Shaggy in a slew of Scooby Doo projects shows off his multi-talented persona. He is starring next to Shannon Elizabeth, also coming off a breakout role in the first couple "American Pie" movies.
Jenn described the plot so there is no need to rehash that. While the movie may not be a masterpiece or a classic by any stretch of the imagination, what it is Lillard just pure fun. A movie doesn't need to be made of gold. It just needs to be a release. You need to escape the real world for 90 minutes or so and look into a crystal ball of sorts. A good time flick can come in all sorts of size. It can be a fun, family film, or it can even be a horror movie. Each one can serve its purpose. The entertainment and kills are set at high levels, but some of the gore is pushing the threshold a little bit. One person cut in half. Ummm, probably not the way you are thinking. But that’s the kind of forward thinking horror fans are appreciative of. If Jason went around with a gun and just shot all his victims, those movies wouldn't be the same. Its the inventive ways the writers find to kill people that keep us coming back for more.
