* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The titular ghosts. Despite being the namesake of the movie who are central to the plot and the only draw of the movie, they get little screen time and their intriguing back stories are AllInTheManual. Most of the ghosts in fact only get a few minutes of screen time and don't actually do anything during the entire movie, while the more prominent ghosts like The Juggernaut get little more than that. Then in a horror movie where these ghosts are built up as such tremendous threats, after the opening scene with The Juggernaut, the only characters directly killed by the ghosts were [[spoiler:Dennis and Cyrus, with Moss killed indirectly after backing away from The Angry Princess into the door]], and there's only a few scenes where a ghost actually directly attacked someone.

You would figure in a movie like this at least a few RedShirts would be thrown in to show what the ghosts could do and why the characters should be so wary of them.

* SoOkayItsAverage: One would be extremely hard pressed to find somebody who's seen this film, let alone care about it.

Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Dennis is commonly regarded as the best part of the movie. Primarily for Matthew Lillard's lively performance and being the OnlySaneMan in a house full of idiots. [[spoiler: Most viewers wish he was the SoleSurvivor of the movie. Or that he at least survived the movie.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EthnicScrappy: Maggie. Primarily on account of being an incredibly unfunny of every black woman stereotype known to man

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Even critics who didn't like the film (like RogerEbert) agreed that the production design for the house and the machinery within it was fantastic.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Cyrus Kriticos]] is a multimillionaire occultist and ghost hunter who desires nothing less than omnipotence and is responsible, in one way or another, for all the deaths in the film. He uses his wealth to construct the ''Ocularis Infernum'' (The Eye of Hell), a huge mechanical device originally designed in the 15th century that will give its bearer infinite power. He captures 12 tormented spirits, whom he traps in the basement of his mansion to drain their souls and fuel the engine. He then lures the family of his nephew Arthur Kriticos to the house in the hopes that Arthur will die and become the 13th ghost to complete the ritual, arranging this by kidnapping Arthur's [[WouldHurtAChild two children]] and putting them in a death trap so Arthur will sacrifice himself in a futile attempt to save them. When Cyrus's lover [[spoiler: Kalina]], who initially worked as a spy for him and helped him to manipulate Arthur, [[EvenEvilHasStandards balks]] at [[WouldntHurtAChild killing the children too]], Cyrus has her crushed between two walls, sneering that she lacks the will to achieve greatness.
