Halloween Horrors Two: 13 Ghosts

13 GHOSTS 1960

While most of William Castle's films are fun, I think 13 Ghosts best captures that Halloween vibe (though House on Haunted Hill is a close second). The gimmick this time around, a pair of glasses that allows the viewer to see the ghosts, was better than usual, and actually made the viewer feel he or she was a player in Castle's macabre world. I got to see this film on the big screen, but it wasn't until the DVD release years later that I was able to experience the GHOST VIEWER.
The 2001 remake is almost as fun, but may be a tad too gruesome for the younger trick or treaters.
