Tune in to the Halloween Special movie this Wednesday night at 11 p.m. only on Star Movies

Mumbai, October 16, 2006… The only thing worse than being trapped in a house with a ghost... is being trapped in a house with 13 ghosts!!! There are ghosts around us all the time. Most of them don't want to hurt us. But, there are exceptions! With Halloween around the corner, Star Movies presents a tricky treat of horrifying thrillers with Hallow Scream all through the month. Tune in this Wednesday, October 18th at 11 p.m. to watch "Thirt13en Ghosts" and you might have to think twice before sleeping alone!

Thirt13en Ghosts is a state-of-the-art remake of the classic William Castle horror film about a family that inherits a spectacular old house from an eccentric uncle. There's just one problem: the house seems to have a dangerous agenda all its own. Arthur and his two children, Kathy and Bobby, inherit his Uncle Cyrus's estate: a glass house that serves as a prison to 12 ghosts. When the family, accompanied by Bobby's Nanny and an attorney, enter the house they find themselves trapped inside an evil machine "designed by the devil and powered by the dead" to open the Eye of Hell.

Trapped in their new home by strangely shifting walls, the family encounters powerful and vengeful entities that threaten to annihilate anyone in their path. Soon the family is joined by an offbeat ghost hunter who is determined to free the spirits imprisoned in the house. Caught in a frantic race to save themselves before it is too late, the human inhabitants realize the house is a riddle which contains the key to their imminent salvation - or destruction.

Directed by Steve Beck and produced by Joel Silver, Dan Cracchiolo, Gil Adler and Robert Zemeckis this movie stars F. Murray Abraham, Tony Shalhoub, Shannon Elizabeth, Kathryn Anderson, J.R. Bourne, Embeth Davidtz, Rah Digga, Matthew Lillard and Alec Roberts.

So don't forget to tune in to this Halloween Special film "Thirt13en Ghosts", this Wednesday, October 18th at 11 p.m. only on Star Movies.
