Thirteen Ghosts, the second over-the-top remake of an over-the-top William Castle horror flick (the first was ”House on Haunted Hill”) tries to update the innocent camp of the original with cheap post-”Scream” irony and lazy, scattered racial jokes while dishing out technologically advanced spookiness. The result is a Halloween movie in horror limbo in which Tony Shalhoub, Shannon Elizabeth, Matthew Lillard, and others scream down hallways populated by ghosts.
