Corrected entry: In the end of the movie Arthur is looking at all the ghosts standing in the circle. The shot shows clearly that he has a line of blood down his chin. Then in the next scene the middle part of his chin has no blood.

Correction: Part of the line of blood was wiped away.

Corrected entry: If the young boy ghost was killed by an arrow while playing cowboys and indians as the "Ghost files" on the DVD says, then why is he in an Indian costume? Shouldn't he be in a cowboy outfit?

Correction: Billy is not "in an Indian costume" strictly speaking, he's actually wearing bits of both cowboy and Indian costumes while he was playing that day he was killed. He liked to dress up as both a cowboy as well as an Indian (during the "Ghost Files" montage, there's an illustration of Billy with his mother seated at the table, and he's wearing a headress with a bow and arrows lying on the floor near him). The day Billy was killed he was wearing a cowboy shirt, a bolo tie at his collar, with a toy gun holster and his cap gun around his waist, and Billy was also wearing a single feather Indian headress on his head, holding a tomahawk in his hand. As for the original correction regarding how Billy was killed, we are shown in the "Ghost Files" montage that the neighbor boy, who had his father's real bow and steel-tipped arrow, shot Billy through the back of his head.

Correction: This is a question not a mistake. And the correction doesn't even relate to the entry at all.


Correction: The boy was shooting into the sky, and what goes up, will go down. Or he was killed by "friendly fire".

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene in the library when Matthew Lillard is forced to tell the husband who the 13th ghost is, you can see the director's face through the glass wall in the bottom left while they are carrying out the glass panel. (01:01:15)

Rafkin: There are ghosts in the basement.
Maggie: This basement?
Rafkin: Of course this basement! What is it with you people? If it was the basement next door I wouldn't give a shit, would I?

More quotes from 13 Ghosts

Trivia: While the Withered Lover is stated to be proactive for the side of good, two other ghosts are never seen actually attacking or scaring someone. The First Born Son is more of a taunter and prankster, though the Torso seems to be more or less harmless as he doesn't even hurt Cyrus. The Dire Mother is also seen as harmless by herself, but she is accompanied by her disabled son Harold who carries an axe for protection.

More trivia for 13 Ghosts

Question: Dennis says that all the ghosts are violent. Well, then why are the First Born Son, the Torso, and the Withered Lover the harmless ones? Now, the 1st and 2nd ghosts had some danger to them, but not much - the Torso is only seen crawling to its head and doesn't even lift Cyrus, while the First Born Son seems to be more of a prankster than actually malicious and doesn't lift Cyrus. Is this a movie mistake or just the side result of poor movie filming?

Answer: I'd say it's more a case of Dennis being overly confident and not really knowing what he was talking about. He made generalized assumptions that all ghosts are violent, when they are not.

I should also add the Dire Mother and Great Child. The Great Child is dangerous but only as a protective spirit, while the Dire Mother on her own seems harmless, like the first 2 ghosts and Jean.
