Overview

13 Ghosts

Director William Castle was an inventor of all kinds of movie theater novelties, including the illustrious "Illusion-O" for the frightening 13 Ghosts. Columbia has done a very nice job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen presentation. On one side of the disc there is a normal black-and-white widescreen presentation, and on the other is the "Illusion-O" version with color tinting and the facility to be able to use the "Ghost Viewer" included with this disc. This transfer looks very nice with only a minimal amount of edge enhancement and grain present. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono and sounds clear and distortion free, though lacks much depth or fidelity. The dialogue, effects, and eerie music are all distortion free. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital 1.0 track in Spanish, as well as Chinese, English, Thai, Korean, Portuguese, French, and Spanish subtitles. 13 Ghosts scares up a scant few extra features, notably a featurette on the making of 13 Ghosts, as well as some thin production notes and a "Ghost Viewer" so patrons can spot the spooks!

I saw this terrifying movie as a kid and it scared the daylights out of me - I had an 'Illusion-O' 'ghost viewer' and my brother was going to throw me in a closet with it so I could see if there were spooks on the loose in our house. I kicked and screamed when he grabbed me! This is a great late-night popcorn and soda movie the whole family can get scared with together. Yes, that's Margaret Hamilton aka The Wicked Witch of the West from 'The Wizard of Oz,' in the film as the housekeeper. Lots of black and white spooktacular fun!
