What’s it about?
Based on the famous Disney ride, Haunted Mansion is about a woman and her son enlisting a motley crew of so-called spiritual experts to help rid their home of supernatural squatters.
What did we think?
Anthony Sherratt says: I came in with very low expectations especially considering the abysmal 2003 film of the same name and company, and perhaps it’s that feeling of dread that bolstered my overall impression because – gods help me – I actually enjoyed it. It’s not great cinema but it made me laugh, it had an interesting twist on haunted houses and the supernatural and it had a cast putting in a good effort (although Owen Wilson once again just play us Owen Wilson).
Certainly nothing to rush out to see or put on a ‘must-see’ list, but it’s popcorn fare that will entertain anyone looking for a light-hearted romp.
