Haunted Mansion is based on the beloved amusement park ride of the same name. It primarily follows Gabbie (Rosario Dawson), a single mother who quickly learns that she and her son aren’t the only ones residing at their home — they’re just the only living ones. So, Gabbie enlists the help of a band of paranormal experts to exorcise her home and restore her and her son’s domestic peace once more. The movie was written by Katie Dippold and directed by Justin Simien. It was produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, with Nick Reynolds and Tom Peitzman as executive producers. Along with Dawson, Haunted Mansion features a star-studded cast that includes LaKeith Stanfield, Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, Tiffany Haddish, Jamie Lee Curtis, Dan Levy, and Jared Leto.
