It's a screaming face made from pictures of other scary faces, notably the ghosts. Even the main link's website gave it the Creepiest Poster award that year, with this description:

** There was also a show called The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, which counts as Hilarious in Hindsight.

* 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.

* 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.]]

* 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.
