I recently watched Disney's Haunted Mansion again.
This stars Eddie Murphy and he brings his great wit and humor to the movie and breathes to life into the Haunted Mansion itself.
This is based on Walt Disney's Haunted Mansion ride.
Great opening with the castle becoming a haunted mansion and included in the movie are parts of the actual ride at Disney. If you listen close, you can hear some of the background music from the ride as well.
I loved the open masquerade party!
The swamp atmosphere is really cool, taking place in Louisiana.
It was a cute way to bring the story up to date.
The sets are very detailed in this movie. Just a gorgeous house! Pictures very much like the lenticulars, the singing grim grinning ghost busts are just like the ride, including one of the faces being of Walt Disney himself! Madame Leota from the ride, Jennifer Tilly plays her. The three hitchhiking ghosts even make an appearance! As the butler, Ramsley, Terence Stamp...was really great! The guy who was in the movie, The Princess Bride, Wallace Shawn, who coined the word "Inconceivable!", is in this movie as well and acts just like the same guy in Princess Bride.
Eddie's humor is really funny throughout the movie and does not disappoint! His facial expressions are classic!
This movie is just a great classic! I absolutely loved it and it is very kid friendly!
I won't say more as the story is wonderful and I don't want to ruin it for you. It's definitely a must see!
Be sure and watch after the credits for a little bonus
