My roommate Kevin and I rented and watched the DVD of "Thir13en Ghosts." A horror movie that strayed from the norm of other "gorror" movies as I like to call them. It did contain graphic violence but still tried to scare you without having a gazillion deaths or jump at the screen with loud noises moments.

It was an okay movie and I was entertained throughout. I also really like Tony Shaloub as an actor. The only thing that I was upset about was that this film should have gotten some nominations for best art and set direction. It is based primarily in a house that is a working machine made entirely of shatterproof glass. Really quite a spectacle.

I spent most of the movie though wondering where these ghosts came from and how they became so gruesome. The best part is an elobrate DVD menu that has one of the characters narrate the backgrounds of each of the ghosts and how they came to be. This is the sort of thing that should be on every DVD. It's too bad people in the theaters didn't get to see this as it really adds so much more to the film.

I agree that it's an interesting idea, but casting these days is such a business act and not an artistic act that I don't think casting agents will get Academy Awards any sooner than producers will. Still, I'd like to see an award given to whomever found Hugh Jackman and cast him as Wolverine.
