The Haunted Mansion

1

Happy Meal horror, this: cheap, gaudily coloured and lacking in nourishment. The premise is so small you could dissolve it in your Coke (Eddie Murphy and family get trapped in a haunted house). The characters are made from the same cardboard as your fries. And the plotline... Well, there's more meat (but less cheese) in a 99p burger.

Murphy, meanwhile, appears to have finally given up the ghost. Watching him stumble through The Haunted Mansion is as tragically comic as watching a formerly great heavyweight boxer trip on his catheter tube and fall into a bath filled with custard. Our advice? Stick to voicing cartoon donkeys.
