Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Mr Gracey and Sara are walking up the steps arm in arm, it appears that Mr Gracey is in normal physical human form, but when Jim lashes out at Ramsley, his hand goes straight through. 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 »

A Watchable Adventure, In Spite of Full of Clichés and the Presence of the Unbearable Eddie Murphy
13 November 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The real-estate broker Jim Evers (Eddie Murphy) and his wife Sara Evers (Marsha Thomason) are partners in their real-estate business, but Jim is workaholic and does not give much attention to his family. On their wedding anniversary, Jim promises to travel with Sara and their daughter Megan and son Michael in the weekend to a close lake, but Sara is invited to visit a mansion and Jim sees the chance of the beginning of a great deal. He decides to visit the huge house in the way to the lake, and the family is hosted by the weird butler Ramsley (Terence Stamp) and his master Gracey (Nathaniel Parker). Jim and his family pretty soon realize that the house is full of ghosts and that Gracey believes that Sara is the reincarnation of his former fiancée Elizabeth. Although full of clichés and having the unbearable Eddie Murphy, 'The Haunted Mansion' has some good moments and is watchable. The best parts are those with the participation of Emma (Dina Waters from 'Six Feet Under' and her funny voice), Ezra (Wallace Shawn) and Jennifer Tilly as the crystal ball Madame Leota. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): 'Mansão Mal-Assombrada' ('Haunted Mansion')
