The Haunted Mansion Review

Image for The Haunted Mansion

The Evers family visit said haunted mansion under the guise of a real-estate deal. In fact, the owner lures them there to get his hands on Sarah, who looks like a painting found in his attic. The family come together in a bid to save Sarah and flee the mansion in which they are trapped.

★★★★

Once upon a time, a theme park ride was - with the addition of some CGI ghosts and a big-name star - turned into a hugely successful Hollywood movie. The Haunted Mansion is not it.

Rather, we have Eddie Murphy jobbing his way through the same old schtick as an estate agent whose family gets trapped inside said ghost-infested property. Neither frightening nor funny, Rob Minkoff's yawn-inducing comedy-horror may share Pirates Of The Caribbean's basic premise, but isn't worthy to scrub the latter's galley floor.
