Thirteen Ghosts

Austin Chronicle

DIRECTED BY: William Castle

REVIEWED: 08-17-98

13 Ghosts (D: William Castle, 1968; with Martin Milner, Margaret Hamilton) is mainly remembered for its rather soggy haunted-house plot and the Master Showman's latest gimmick, the "Illusion-O" Ghost Viewer (a strip of colored plastic not unlike 3-D glasses which enabled audiences to see the ghosts on screen, or "remove" them when cowardice got the better of them). Few recall, though, that it probably had the first LSD segment committed to film, when Vincent Price ingested some of the drug and within minutes was reduced to a snivelling, gibbering mess cowering in the corner of his laboratory.
