After his uncle dies a man and his son and daughter inhabit a haunted house with 12 trapped ghosts. The house walls are glass with inscriptions in another language that the ghost must obey. After the family arrives they meet their house ghosts that can only be seen through a special pair of glasses. Slowly the dream house turns to a horrifying machine with a deadly purpose. The family along with the help of a man that understands the true purpose of the house and its ghost must stop the deadly machine and at the same time free the ghosts of their glass prison.


Just in time for Halloween! The studio couldn't have picked a better release date. This is the perfect time to release a movie like this. Releasing this right before Halloween was an excellent decision. I hadn't seen the 1960 original before seeing this, but after I saw this I quickly decided to go rent the original. Anyway, there are so many things that make this movie great, although I will only list a few of them: the special effects, the acting, the music, the director's awesome camera movements, the fantastic writing, the occasional jokes [which are hilarious], and the suspense. It's one of the most inventive and visually impressive movies I have seen in a while. Well worth seeing.
