Did You Know?


The Hitchhiking Ghosts were more prominent in early drafts of the script, but were trimmed back because it became too overwhelming to have three supporting characters chiming in all the time. See more »


When Jim and his daughter are trying to get out of the mausoleum you can see that from the inside the door that light is showing through the cracks before Michael opens the door. See more »


Emma: [grabbing the reins from Ezra] Move over.

Look for a "special" message from Madame Leota at the end of the credit roll. It sounds deadly familiar to the ending of the Disneyland ride. See more »

30 November 2003 | by (NJ, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Haunted Mansion boasts wonderful spfx and great zombie makeup. Haunted mansion is fast paced. Haunted Mansion is quite creative with it's storyline and imaginative sets. But what the film does lack is good performances despite Jennifer Tilly's Madame Liotta. Thew other ones just seem ok. The film's wrap up is just so contrived and seems like one of many endings thatw ill be available on the dvd. I realiaze it's an amazing feat to turn a ride into full length film. But you just don''t have enough to work with and You churn out an hour and 20 minute semi stinker. maybe it's best it shouldn't have been made. Don't get me wrong whats on screen is quite entertaining not due in large part by another annoying performance ny Eddie Murphy. But what the film truly lacks isn't enough to block the film what the film truly tries to be. A blatant family entertainer designed to bring in the bucks and it most likely will.
