What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Haunted Mansion is the second movie inspired by the classic Disney theme park ride, following the 2003 film of the same name.

Our Editors Recommend
The Haunted Mansion
Spooky movie based on Disneyland ride is dreadful.
Muppets Haunted Mansion
Spooky musical special is as good as the Muppets get.
We Have a Ghost
Goofy but creepy supernatural tale has language, violence.
Haunted house tale not as mild as the cartoons.
