It’s 13 times the thrills, 13 times the fun, 13 times the screams! It’s 13 GHOSTS, a ghoulish fright-fest from producer-director William Castle. When an eccentric uncle wills a huge, ramshackle house to Cyrus and his impoverished family, they get the shock of a lifetime. Their new residence comes complete with a spooky housekeeper, Elaine, plus a fortune in buried treasure and 12 horrifying ghosts. As the terrified family soon discovers, these spirits include a decapitated man, a wailing lady and a flaming skeleton who are held captive in the eerie house.  They must find an unlucky 13th to free them! Who’ll be the final victim of these ghostly shenanigans? See for yourself if you dare!
