Haunted Mansion Movie Review

Haunted Mansion was a complete waste of time and money. It had a bunch of idiotic characters doing the stupidest things (oh a ghost, let's hide under a table!).

The scariest part here was the return of Lilet, signalling that I'm actually way too old to remember her.

All together now, "I am the future of the world, I am the hope of my nation..."
