Consensus: Neither scary nor funny, The Haunted Mansion is as lifeless as the ghosts in the movie.

More Disneyland ride than movie, short on plot and long on dazzling visuals for the kiddies.

Go on the Disney ride instead. It's over sooner.

Rob Minkoff has directed a movie that's nearly laughless and nowhere near as frightening as what's happened to Eddie Murphy's career.

The point of Haunted Mansion is for audiences to sit back and enjoy the ride, which is easy to do thanks to an engaging story, the striking, Gothic-inspired set by Oscar-winner John Myhre and some delightful special effects.

When a Disney ride becomes a movie, there's not much hope that things will turn out as well as they do in this tame horror comedy.

A pleasant and atmospheric family romp, offering enough mildly chilling thrills to keep everyone entertained during its brief running time.

Washington Post

It's perfectly palatable family fare for a long weekend when it's hard to find movies at the neighborhood 'plex that will please everyone.

Steve Crum
Kansas City Kansan

Great visuals, few scares and laughs. But it IS clean family entertainment.

It's kind of funny but it's not scary and the plot is kinda stupid. Can't wait for Guilemro Del Toro's reboot!!!

I enjoy it once and a while, but it was just never really my thing.
Kyle Fowler
It's suitably creepy with a cast of likable characters. Eddy Murphy does well as the lead,and though it shares some of the flaws that most live action… More
