Reclusive Dr. Zorba has died and left his eerie mansion to his penniless nephew Cyrus Zorba and his family. Along with the house, the Zorba family has also inherited the occultist's collection of 12 ghosts, who can only be seen through Zorba's special goggles. The family members, their lives at risk upon the discovery that Dr. Zorba's fortune lies hidden somewhere in the house, receive aid from unexpected quarters as the threat to their lives is revealed.

When the wind starts to blow at 06:42 after Buck makes his birthday wish you can see from 06:45 to 06:46 that it is blowing from behind Mrs. Zorba and toward Medea, who is sitting across from Mrs. Zorba, consistent with the flames on the birthday candles blowing toward Medea as they are extinguished at 06:44. However, at 06:00 a large fire place was shown behind Mrs. Zorba (which appeared in an earlier scene at 05:12) rather than the double window with a phone and phone book sitting in front of it shown from 06:42 to 06:43 to be the source of the wind. At 08:30 Medea is kneeling by the phone with the double window to her left reading from the phone book and talking to her father who is returning from answering the front door, but for this window to have been behind Mrs. Zorba, the film frames must be flipped horizontally so that the window would be to her right. Without the frame-flip, this window would have to be in the position of the single window shown from 06:45 to 06:46 without a phone and phone book sitting in front of it. See more »

I wish we owned our own house, and all our furniture that nobody could take away.

Don't confuse this movie with the awful remake. Thankfully this movie was shown on one of the old movie channels before the remake came out or I might have passed on it. Maybe I'm biased having grown up watching all kind of horror movies, but I've always enjoyed the older movies like this one rather than the in your face remakes of today. Subtlety goes a long ways in telling the story!
