Haunted Mansion(2023)Movie Review:Worse than expected


The movie centers around a single mother and her son who relocate to the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans. The dialogue between the protagonists and the ghosts of the mansion was the highlight of the story, making it mildly entertaining. However, the execution was poor due to the film’s overly silly jokes, cheesy ghost visuals, and painfully obvious references to the ride.

The film’s biggest issue is its pacing. Despite an hour passing, there are no crucial plot points in the storyline. As a Disney movie, I anticipated being entertained and perhaps a little scared in a lighthearted way, but I found myself incredibly bored and nearly falling asleep. While the film can be enjoyed as a fun family outing, it exposes its flaws when watched more closely. The comedy elements fall flat for the most part, but some may find them amusing.

Approaching the movie with an open mind can lead to enjoyment, as there are several enjoyable aspects of the film, such as seeing beloved ghosts come to life. However, it’s important not to have high expectations and to simply enjoy the ride.
