Thirteen Ghosts (2001 Remake) Retrospective
Episode 32 | Release Date 02/20/2021 | The Grim and Bloody Podcast
Say what you will about Steve Beck's Thirteen Ghosts remake, it was a fun popcorn horror movie! With amazing special make-up effects by Howard Berger and Greg Nicotero, along with a production design that is still unparalleled to this day, Thirteen Ghosts remains on Halloween playlists twenty years later. The executive team behind the successful HBO series Tales from the Crypt leant their weight to this big budget supernatural opus that starred Tony Shalhoub, Matthew Lillard, a young Shannon Elizabeth and F. Murray Abraham.
So join Al Omega, Joe Flynn, and Anthony DeRouen as they discuss what made Thirteen Ghosts a stand out movie among a slate of commercially successful titles under Dark Castle Entertainment's belt, aspects that could have lifted its narrative further, and why Steve Beck's follow up effort Ghost Ship was equally as enjoyable.
