Great Halloween movie. Very realistic, can be very scary for children. Basically a ghost story where ghosts are trapped in a specially built house and only visible wearing special glasses. A family inherits this house and are being picked off one by one by the 13 ghosts. Reminiscent of the Poltergeist and Friday the 13th movies.
A rather gruesome horror film, Thir13en Ghosts delivers violence and gore aplenty. After his uncle's death Arthur Kriticos inherits a luxurious and elaborate house, but he soon learns that it's...

Several of the men are killed during the ensuing fight, including Cyrus himself. However, the team is able to catch the ghost.

The thirteen ghosts that make up the fictional "Black Zodiac" each have their own unique back stories. Although these stories were not described in the film, on the DVD, the production and make-up teams explain their guidelines. Cyrus narrates each ghost's back story. 1. The First Born Son- The Firstborn Son is the ghost of Billy Michaels, a boy who was a fan of cowboy films. One day, a neighbor found a real steel arrow in his parents' closet. He challenged Billy to a duel, with Billy using a toy gun. However, his plaything was no match for the arrow, and he died when the neighbor shot it through the back of his head. In death, Billy is in his cowboy suit and holding a tomahawk, with the arrow still protruding from his head. His ghost whispers "I want to play." 2. The Torso- The Torso is the ghost of a gambler called Jimmy "The Gambler" Gambino. He spent most of his days on the track, making bets and brainwashed into winning. One day, he made a deal with a rich business man, and so...
