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 13 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.Written by

The creepy little man who delivers the telegram is played by David Hoffman, whom horror buffs remember for his appearances as the head inside the crystal ball in the "Inner Sanctum" movies. See more »
When Buck puts on the glasses and sees the lion, its roaring is not synchronized with its mouth movements (from 51:59 to 52:05). This could be a ghostly phenomenon chosen for its spooky effect. See more »
The 2001 DVD release includes both the B&W non-Illusion-O edit, as well as the original Illusion-O version, featuring the red-blue tinted scenes and the William Castle prologue and epilogue. A Ghost Viewer is included inside the DVD case, along with a liner booklet, and the dual-sided disc (one side Illision-O, the other non-Illusion-O). Sadly, more recent production runs of the DVD eliminate the Illusion-O side, the liner booklet, and (accordingly) the Ghost Viewer. See more »
Thirteen Ghosts is one of those great 'classic' horror films,that relied more on atmosphere and acting, then on 'gory' special f/x. I saw the re-make' and did not enjoy it at all; being a classic horror film fan, I was very disappointed. This movie features some pretty good actings; Donald Woods, Rosemary DeCamp, and Martin Milner of the classic "Route 66" TV show, Donald Woods as know to classic horror fans, appeared in the Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, and John VanDreelan in "The Leech Woman" so it was goods for us old 'classiclovers' to see them, and lets not forget Miss Margaret Hamilton, the 'Wicked "Witch of the West" from the great "Wizard of 0z' all in all an entertaining, fun family film It has its scary moments, but none of the 'gore' so prevalent in today's films.
