    It would be nice to see a genuinely creepy, scary haunted house story. The trailer I just watched unfortunately makes it look more like a tech/CGI fest...

    This movie looks pretty damn cool to me, but then again I am a rabid horror fan. Can't wait till this film opens! Looking forward to From Hell too.

    Does 13 Ghosts have anything at all to do with the original film besides the title and the fact that there may be 13 ghosts?
    I would love for this to be good, but after seeing House on Haunted Hill, I'm not very hopeful.

    I'm jazzed to see Thir13en Ghosts as well. It's always good to have another Matthew Lillard movie that isn't dragged down by Freddie Prinze Jr...

    I dunno. I enjoyed the House on Haunted Hill remake, and I'm hoping for more of the same with 13 Ghosts.

    I think this movie
    looks good too. I love horror movies and can't wait to see this one. I had heard that this is a remake of the original. I know that its available on DVD. I am thinking about picking it up before I see the movie. I am also looking to From Hell. That looks good.

    The good news is that there is little CGI until the end, and the ghost effects are makeup and cinematography based.
    And the connection to the original is maintained in the glasses that are used to see the actual ghosts (although this is now in the movie, with no participation from the audience)
