Synopsis

Horror triple-bill. In 'Thirteen Ghosts' (2001), after his rich and crazy Uncle Cyrus is lost in a bizarre ghost-capturing incident, Arthur Kriticos (Tony Shalhoub) is pleased and surprised to inherit Cyrus' house. He is even more surprised - and somewhat less pleased - when he actually visits the house and discovers it to be a giant glass and clockwork machine designed to hold twelve of the ghosts Cyrus has collected. When the ghosts are then unwittingly released, Arthur must struggle to uncover the secret behind Cyrus' plan - a plan which will, if successful, turn Arthur himself into the thirteenth ghost. In 'Darkness Falls' (2003), Matilda Dixon was well known to the local children of the 1850s New England town called Darkness Falls for paying them for teeth that they lost. When two children disappeared, Matilda was blamed for the mystery and was lynched by an angry mob. In 2002, Kyle Walsh (Chaney Kley), former Darkness Falls resident now living in Las Vegas, is still haunted by the experience of meeting the ghost of Matilda. When his childhood friend Caitlin (Emma Caulfield) tells him that her brother Michael (Lee Cormie) is having the same nightmares that Kyle once suffered, Kyle agrees to return to Darkness Falls to end the nightmares. Finally, in 'The Haunting' (1999), Dr David Marrow (Liam Neeson) lures three subjects to a haunted house by advertising for volunteers for a study on insomnia. These unfortunate subjects are Theo (Catherine Zeta Jones), Nell (Lili Taylor) and Luke (Owen Wilson). Once in the house, the trio notice a number of strange and unexplainable events, and Nell becomes convinced that the house is trying to communicate with her.
