Reclusive Dr. Zorba has died and left his eerie mansion to his penniless nephew Cyrus Zorba and his family. Along with the house, the Zorba family has also inherited the occultist's collection of 13 ghosts, who can only be seen through Zorba's special goggles. The family members, their lives at risk upon the discovery that Dr. Zorba's fortune lies hidden somewhere in the house, receive aid from unexpected quarters as the threat to their lives is revealed.Written by

Some home video versions strip the movie of all Illusion-O features. The red and blue ghost sequences are rendered as regular black and white, the "Use/Remove Viewer" messages are eliminated, and the William Castle prologue and epilogue are entirely removed. The film was presented this way on VHS and Laserdisc. One side of the dual-sided DVD also presents the film in this manner (the other side presents it with all Illusion-O features intact). See more »
Don't confuse this movie with the awful remake. Thankfully this movie was shown on one of the old movie channels before the remake came out or I might have passed on it. Maybe I'm biased having grown up watching all kind of horror movies, but I've always enjoyed the older movies like this one rather than the in your face remakes of today. Subtlety goes a long ways in telling the story!
