screenplay by Robb White
directed by William Castle
by Walter Chaw 13 Ghosts, showman director William Castle's gimmicky follow-up to his most infamous film The Tingler, is slow-paced hokum that gives lie to the belief that the horror movies of yesteryear are very much better than those of today. Between awful acting, a terrible screenplay by celebrated kiddie author and long-time Castle collaborator Robb White, and direction from Castle that alternates between plodding and ridiculous, 13 Ghosts is a good deal of fun in spite of itself. It is a prime candidate for a "Mystery Science Theater" treatment and best enjoyed with the quick-witted or the inebriated.
