Ending
Cyrus works as a museum guide, his wife Hilda calls him at work to say the furniture men are repossessing their stuff (again). That night, it's Buck's 10th birthday party; his wish is for a house with furniture no one can take away. Cyrus is called to the law offices of Ben; there, Ben tells them they've inherited his uncle Dr. Zorba's house... and it's ghostly residents. If they choose to move in, they must stay; if they decline, the state gets the place. Cyrus also gets a package containing ghost-seeing glasses. They move in, and that night Cyrus sees several ghosts and is burned by one of them. The museum supervisor translates Zorba's diary to learn there are 11 ghosts in the house, Zorba makes 12, and there's a mystery 13th ghost (which the Ouija board said will be one of the family). Zorba was getting paranoid, and had cashed all his assets out and hidden the money in the house; Buck starts finding it, Ben learns of it, and makes Buck promise not to tell his parents or sister Madea. The creepy housekeeper, Elaine, was an assistant to Zorba, remained working at the house. The parents, Madea and Elaine have a seance, where Zorba's ghost speaks to them. Ben carries sleeping Buck into Zorba's room, and puts him on the bed, and clicks a button; the button lowers the top of the canopy bed, presumably how he murdered (by suffocation) Zorba. As the top is about to close on Buck, he escapes as Zorba's ghost chases Ben into the bed; Ben presumably dies. In the morning, the family is counting the found money, Buck asks Elaine if the ghosts are gone, she tells him in a semi-serious tone, "Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies." We watch as the ghost-seeing glasses levitate upward, break apart, and Elaine, broom now in hand, gives us a half-smile. Moving film reel
