Haunted Mansion: Directed by Justin Simien. With LaKeith Stanfield, Rosario Dawson, Owen Wilson, Tiffany Haddish. A single mom named Gabbie hires a tour guide, a psychic, a priest and a historian to help exorcise her newly bought mansion after discovering it is inhabited by ghosts.
The third movie of the first night of my HORROR MARATHON is the 2023 “Haunted Mansion” film, this one taking itself much more seriously with some distinctly unsettling elements to it, with mentions of children killing themselves, dead parents, and corpse brides. Everyone involved is playing to their strengths and my only complaint is that the 3rd act falls victim to Disney’s habit of turning it into a CGI battle with entirely way too much happening all at once. It’s pretty though, so I’ll give it a pass.Favorite This!
