13 Ghosts (1960)

While the interactive “Ghost Viewer” gimmick of 13 Ghosts is stronger than Tingler‘s “Percepto”, the film it animates is a lot less inspiring. Basically a bunch of bad people trying to get a payout with occasional appearances from the titular ghosts, rather blandly represented by coloured opticals. All the surrounding domestic stuff is a bit of slog too and instantly fades from memory. Love Margaret Hamilton’s crooked performance though and all the sly winks to her wicked witch from Wizard of Oz. Doesn’t quite work with home viewing.
