Check Out the Early Reviews of Disney’s NEW Haunted Mansion!
Are you one of the grim, grinning ghosts, ready to see the remake of this much- anticipated movie?
The new Haunted Mansion is not officially released for a few more days, but weekend previews and early reviews are coming in… And they are pretty promising.
You may recall the original Haunted Mansion movie starring Eddie Murphy from 2003. Unfortunately, the movie was not a box office hit and the film was not received well.
However, the new remake is offering a different take on the iconic attraction and fans are pretty excited.
Disney’s Haunted Mansion premieres July 28th, but some critics and selected press received an early screening this past weekend!
Early viewers shared their reactions on social media and their thoughts? Overwhelmingly positive!
Did not expect #HauntedMansion to be a study of loss and grief, but Justin Simien delivers the better adaptation of the beloved ride through his storytelling. Lots of laughs and plenty of jumps. Kris Bowers’ score is a delight, top notch production design. Fab cast pic.twitter.com/GK4TwsdHB0

Critics enjoyed the clever correlation between the film and the iconic Disney ride.
They also enjoyed the hidden Easter eggs, and how this version of the movie truly captured the spirits of the attraction.
Grim grinning ghosts a’plenty in #hauntedmansion This movie is surprisingly creepy, consistently funny, and also emotionally rich. Performances are great (DANNY DEVITO!) & if you love the ride— Justin Simien & Katie Dippold are obviously huge fans and they made it fun for us 👻

The script, the performances, and the cast are all receiving awesome reviews.
I got to watch the #HauntedMansion (before the strike).
It’s a love letter to the iconic Disney ride & a family friendly thriller. The cast, led by LaKeith Stanfield, is outstanding & hilarious. Full of fun cameos, references to the ride & a healthy dose of jump scares. pic.twitter.com/rj92ujOMU7
