There’s 12 ghosts! No wait, 13! What a twist!
This is an overly campy horror film from 2001 that I missed the first time around, but my wife sure didn’t, it was on her list of spooky films to watch, and to be honest it was a fun film that had some pretty neat ideas about how the afterlife works and some pretty imaginative architectural concepts as well. Casting Tony Shalhoub was a weird choice, as he’s not someone that comes to mind when i think “spooky horror film”, but he did his job well enough. Matthew Lillard was the best he’s ever looked in the first portion of the film, something about those frames on him in a junk yard at night really got my motor running! The same can’t be said for either Shannon Elizabeth or Rah Digga, both of whom were playing roles that seemed to be either miscast or misdirected.
