Mickey Mouse is caught in a blizzard when he is forced into an old house, which turns out to be a cavern for skeletons. The main ghoul makes Mickey play the organ while the skeletons dance the night away. I didn't find too many things in this film to be funny but there's no denying the amount of imagination and creativity on display here. The look and atmosphere of the castle makes this a very good horror film and it fits perfectly into the genre more than a lot of non-Disney films. The skeleton dances are quite lively and amusing with Mickey's attempted escape even better. The best looking sequence of the film happens at the start when bats fly towards the screen. The films has a lot of connections with The Skeleton Dance from the same year.
