Thirteen 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.

Trivia: At the end of the film, the Withered Lover is standing on the place where the Torso sat. Both of these ghosts were rather harmless, and the Torso, while described as dangerous, never attacked anyone, including Cyrus, and walked to his head near Bobby. The only other ghost seen that is more or less harmless is the First Born Son, who is more of a taunter and prankster. This ghost died a quick death, being shot in the head by an arrow by another kid accidentally.

Trivia: The only film role of Shawna Loyer, who portrays the "Angry Princess." Because of the character's constant nudity, and the role being Loyer's only credited on-screen performance, for many years, it was believed that Loyer was actually a pornographic actress working under a pseudonym. This rumor was further fueled by the later production of "13 Erotic Ghosts," a porn parody of the film, as people speculated Loyer was also one of the actresses who appeared in it. The rumors have since been disproved. Loyer is not a porn-star working under a pseudonym, nor did she appear in the porn parody.

Trivia: The lawyer Ben being killed after grabbing a suitcase of money is a bit of a callback to the original 1960 film. In that movie, the character Benjamin the lawyer is actually the main villain, and his motivation is that he's trying to find a hidden stash of cash inside the haunted house. He too meets a dark fate at the hands of supernatural forces after discovering the money.

Trivia: The villain of this film is named "Cyrus." However, in the original "13 Ghosts," Cyrus was actually the name of the protagonist.

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.

More quotes from Thirteen Ghosts

Question: In the film we see one ghost that is more of a neutral spirit. It is never seen harming anyone and the only time it scares someone is when it walks towards Bobby, but his head is near Bobby. Is the Torso a murderous spirit or not?

Answer: No, it isn't that they're evil, but all were victims of violent crime. They're all tortured souls.

Answer: They all have the potential for danger, however some of them are not dangerous. I would say the Torso is not a murderous spirit, though potentially he could be one.
