The 2001 William Castle Thir13en Ghosts reboot was something. It’s filled with a lot of flashy imagery and MTV style editing. That said, it still remains a lot of fun. Despite the film being released in 2001 it still has an immense amount of 90s flair from its stars to its aesthetic.
The Shout Factory disc, comes loaded with some unexpected features. Most notably, the interviews with Shannon Elizabeth and Johhn DeSantis. Each, chats about the production of Thir13en Ghosts with fond remembrance. Their interviews also feature a lot of fun trivia aspects for die hard fans.
The transfer of the film looks incredible. This is no big shock coming from Shout Factory and all, but it still needs to be pointed out. This is definitely the highest quality disc around for this particular film.
The synopsis for Thir13en Ghosts goes like this:
A state-of-the-art remake of the classic William Castle horror film about a family that inherits a spectacular old house from an eccentric uncle.
