Arthur and his two children, Kathy and Bobby, inherit his Uncle Cyrus’s estate: a glass house that serves as a prison to 12 ghosts. When the family, accompanied by Bobby’s Nanny and an attorney, enter the house they find themselves trapped inside an evil machine “designed by the devil and powered by the dead” to open the Eye of Hell. Aided by Dennis, a ghost hunter, and his rival Kalina, a ghost rights activist out to set the ghosts free, the group must do what they can to get out of the house alive.
I thought this movie was pretty good. Usually, I have a hard time finding a good ghost movie, because most are either silly looking, have a bad storyline, or just horrible acting. This is one of those rare movies that seemed to have great acting with a decent storyline.
If I was to compare this movie to another film, it would probably have to be close to House on Haunted Hill (1999 version). The ghosts seemed to have the same effects, as House on Haunted Hill, but the make-up looked more zombie looking, which I thought was cool looking.
If you enjoy movies about ghosts, then you’ll enjoy this movie, as well.
