Disney's Haunted Mansion

by Michael Scapp on 4/25/2007

Well, I read a review somewhere else on the net about this Blu-Ray not having such an impressive picture. I love the film but I wasn't expecting the wow factor when checking out the video on this new Blu-Ray disc. Luckily I was very surprised to find that this movie looks great. In the Haunted Mansion there are many dark scenes, and the Blu Disc shows the hidden details in the shadows. The colors of the red drapery, the green glow of Madam Leotta, the blue ghosts in the graveyard all pop on the screen. This Blu-Ray disc is definitely one to show off your new player.

Editors Note
Note Eddie Murphy stars in this spooky, CGI effect-packed Disney film, based on the famous Disney World attraction. He plays Jerry, a workaholic real estate agent who interrupts his family's vacation to check out a remote mansion that's for sale. But soon he and his family are trapped in the haunted house and are screaming for their lives. Terence Stamp is the ghost butler, and Nathaniel Parker is the ghost owner who falls for Jerry's wife, Sara (Marsha Thomason), believing she is the reincarnation of his lost love and providing for both a refreshingly interracial, and frighteningly inter-dimensional romance. Jennifer Tilly has a great bit as a loudmouthed head in the crystal ball; Wallace Shawn and Dina Walters are the ghost servants. Zombies rise up from their graves to attack the living, but generally the film is harmless kid stuff that is bursting with cheerful color, noise, bloodless shocks and refreshingly bathroom-free humor. Fans of the ride should be pleased, as it hits nearly every bump, from the barbershop quartet busts, to the ghostly passenger in the coach. Murphy hams it up royally and the rest of the cast is up for the challenge, especially Stamp, whose droll line readings provide a perfect balance of menace and mirth. Makeup maestro Rick Baker provided the non-CGI special effects.

Review When I was a kid, my favorite place to visit in Disneyworld was The Haunted Mansion. So I was in a nostalgic frame of mind when I sat down to watch this latest ride-turned-movie. Unfortunately, the theme park tie-in is about the only thing The Haunted Mansion has going for it. To be frank, this is a 99-minute commercial for a three-minute attraction. While Pirates of the Caribbean successfully managed to escape the constraints of its origins and provide a rousing evening's entertainment, The Haunted Mansion doesn't come close to the same level. It's dull, childish, and uninspired.

Review The surprising thing about The Haunted Mansion isn't that it's based on a Disney theme park ride, but that it has ambition. It wants to be more than a movie version of the ride. I expected an inane series of nonstop action sequences, but what I got was a fairly intriguing story and an actual plot that is actually resolved. That doesn't make the movie good enough to recommend, but it makes it better than the ads suggest.
