    THRILLS AND CHILLS ABOUND WITH THE ARRIVAL OF

    Thirteen Ghosts

    ON VHS & DVD APRIL 2

    Special Feature-Packed DVD Includes Behind-The-Scenes Documentary

    and Additional Scenes With Director Commentary

    BURBANK, Calif., January 21, 2002 - On April 2, hot, young newcomers Shannon

    Elizabeth (American Pie I and II, Scary Movie) and Matthew Lillard (this

    summer's Scooby-Doo movie, Summer Catch) bring the classic horror film

    Thirteen Ghosts back to life in a remake with a modern twist, available from

    Warner Home Video, on direct to sellthrough VHS and DVD, priced at $22.98

    SRP for VHS and $24.98 SRP.

    The family has moved in - but the ghosts aren't moving out in this

    special-effects update of the classic 1960s shocker from hit-making

    producers Joel Silver (The Matrix, Swordfish) and Robert Zemeckis (Cast

    Away, What Lies Beneath) and starring Tony Shalhoub (Spy Kids, Galaxy

    Quest), Shannon Elizabeth, Matthew Lillard and F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus,

    Finding Forrester).

    The Thirteen Ghosts DVD is web-enabled and will be presented in Dolby

    Digital 5.1 Audio and 16x9 full frame format. The DVD includes several

    outstanding features including "Ghost Files" produced especially for the DVD

    by Joel Silver:

    * "Ghost Files," 12 in-depth vignettes created by the film's

    conceptual artist describing the back stories of the ghosts in the film -

    their life experiences and how they became ghosts

    * "Thirteen Ghosts Revealed," a behind-the-scenes documentary

    * Feature-length commentary by production designer Sean Hargreaves and

    creator of special make-up effects Howard Berger

    * Original theatrical trailer

    * Music video montage

    * DVD-ROM features links to original website

    * Languages: English and French (dubbed in Quebec)

    * Subtitles: English, French and Spanish

    Thirteen Ghosts is rated "R" (horror violence/gore, nudity and some

    language) and has a running time of 91 minutes.

    With operations in 78 international territories - more than the video

    division of any other studio - Warner Home Video commands the largest

    distribution infrastructure in the global video marketplace. WHV's film

    library is the largest of any studio, offering top quality new and vintage

    titles from the repertoires of Warner Bros. Pictures, Turner Home

    Entertainment, Castle Rock Entertainment, HBO Home Video and New Line Home

    Entertainment.

    Sounds like a pretty stocked DVD for such a universally dismissed horror flick. I didn't dislike this one as much as everyone else seemed to (although it IS a pretty weak movie), and I look forward to catching it again on DVD.
    My prediction: This DVD becomes the new audio reference disc. Brace yourselves for one loud movie!
    (Also brace yourselves for the onscreen pairing of Matthew Lillard and Shannon Elizabeth! [​IMG] )
