Didn't anyone ever tell William Castle that "13" was an unlucky number?
9 October 2010 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Brainless teen shenanigans produced and directed by William Castle, who seems to miss the ghosts and goblins of yore! Daughters of the world's leading diplomats (all schoolmates at the same institution) converge on London for a getaway, but the American girl gets more than she bargained for after a party at the house of her Red Chinese comrade--she finds a dead body in the freezer, stabbed with a letter-opener from the desk of her own father. Wide-eyed nonsense won't fool anyone who has outgrown "Nancy Drew". The production isn't bad, but Castle's direction is leaden, and the adults in the cast look properly embarrassed. * from ****
