Trivia

One of the Singing Busts is a bust of Thurl Ravenscroft, according to "The Haunted Mansion: From Magic Kingdom to the Movies", written by imagineer Jason Surrell. He is often mistaken for Walt Disney. The bust of Ravenscroft is a tribute to the fact that he sang the voice of that bust in the theme park attraction. Another bust is that of Paul Frees, who narrates the Disney ride. See more »

Goofs

After Jim exits the painting and goes into the hallway, look down onto the rug. You'll notice dark lines on them, that's not part of the rug as they tried to make it look, it's the railings for the ride. They filmed it inside the ride, that includes the rails leading to the breathing door. See more »

Quotes

Jim: Excuse me, why are all these ghosts still hanging around here?
Emma: When they died, they couldn't find the light. And now, now they're trapped. Doomed to wander the Earth for all eternity.

Crazy Credits

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 »

I see dead movies!
17 January 2006 | by (Fly-Over Country) – See all my reviews

Another nail in the coffin of Eddie Murphy's career, The Haunted Mansion is a slap-dash attempt to cash in on The Pirates of the Caribbean, an infinitely more successful and better film based on a Disneyland ride. There's just nothing here to write about--very little human drama and not enough computer wizardry to keep you from noticing you don't care about the humans.

About the only two things worth mentioning are Jennifer Tilly's fairly funny Madame Leota, a wisecracking Gypsy trapped in a bright green crystal medicine ball and Marsha Thomason, not for any acting ability but simply that she is beautiful and her beauty relieves some of the boredom.

Oh, well. At least it didn't have some character pontificating, "Follow your heart!"--the ubiquitous and hackneyed Disney message
