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

[I]t's dreadful.

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

Nell Minow

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.

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

Steve Crum
Kansas City Kansan

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

Terrible. The horror tricks used can hardly scare someone in this age (might have worked in the 1960s, I guess). The comedy track doesn't work either.… More

I enjoy it once and a while, but it was just never really my thing.

Terrible story, screenplay and direction made, The Haunted Mansion, is useless film. Rotten.
