13 Ghosts

Other mistake: When Dennis jumps out from behind the glass wall shield, leaving Arthur behind it and The Hammer and Juggernaut ghosts attack, Arthur bangs the glass yelling as if he can't get out; but the wall shield is only propped up, unsupported and should've fallen straight forwards when he thudded his fists on it.

Other mistake: When Maggie puts the "magic" glasses for the first time, you can see that the light in the right (left to us) lens sparks and then turns off. In the next scene it works fine. (00:31:21)

Other mistake: When everyone is looking for Bobby, Matthew Lillard says that it is no use shouting because the glass is 100% sound proof. Yet when he is trapped in the cage, he hears Maggie screaming directions for him to dodge the ghost - not sound proof at all then.

Other mistake: In the scene where Cyrus's Nephew first sees the kids in the in the machine. (1:18:45) The shot goes back and forth from him to the machine. The first 2 time the glasses are fine the last shot (1:18:550 The prescription inserts in the glasses are crooked. Bad editing. (00:18:45 - 01:18:55)

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 directors' face through the glass wall in the bottom left while they are carrying out the glass panel. (01:01:15)

Question: Cyrus faked his death to lure his nephew Arthur and his family to his house so Arthur could could sacrifice himself to become the thirteenth ghost. So that means Cyrus must've gone to the extra effort to put prosthetic make-up and fake blood on to make it look like he had his throat cut out. But why? So if Arthur and his family saw him wandering around the house, they'd just think he was another ghost? But by that point they would already be caught in the Rubik's cube of a house, and his plan set in motion, so why would he care if they found he wasn't really dead? Why go to all that extra effort to get made up like a corpse?

Answer: Because the family would have been confused, bewildered, curious and mad as to why did this and would fight or run away. Remember the book said, it needed a willing victim to sacrifice themselves.

Answer: It could simply be that his obsession with ghosts is the reason why he wants to be seen as a ghost by his nephew, as a fetish. Also he wanted to be witness to Arthur's sacrifice and Arthur thinking he was a ghost made it simpler if he was spotted.
