This year we’re getting our inspiration from the 2001 horror movie Thir13en Ghosts. It’s an underappreciated—accidental—masterpiece (and homage to the original Thirteen Ghosts, released in the 50s). If you want to know why, you’ve come to the right place.
In Thirteen Ghosts we follow widower Arthur Kriticos (played by Tony Shaloub, pre-Monk fame) who inherits a house from an uncle he didn’t even know he had (sus, but okay).
With a plethora of outstanding bills and overdue payments, Arthur sees no other option than taking the gamble. He packs up the entire family and goes to check out their sweet new digs.
On arrival, some ‘interested parties’ join them, all with their own reason to seek entrance to the Kriticos mansion. That’s when things go awry and we’re treated to some delicious tropes like occult books and ominous chanting.
I have to give a shout out to the ever exceptional Matthew Lillard. He ‘Lillards’ the absolute f*ck out of this movie. It’s glorious and makes the movie so much better than it has any right to be.
As you’d expect from an early 2000’s horror movie, this film is chock full of cliches and special effects (both digital and practical). Some hold up, some definitely don’t. Thirteen Ghosts rehashes the late 90s and early 2000s B-horror vibe, while desperately wanting to become a smash hit. It never became a cinematic masterpiece, but there is so much about this movie that is perfect, and I need to share my love for it.
We are basing all 13 otter pups (20 gram mini skeins) on the titular ghosts from this movie. Pulling information from their backstories and combining them with the on screen visuals.
