Haunted Mansion Quotes (2003)

Image Credit: Disney/2003 All Rights Reserved

The 2003 Haunted Mansion film wasn’t quite the commercial success that Disney hoped it’d be.

But it’ll go down as a relatively accurate rendition of the ride’s IP with a bit of Eddie Murphy comic goodness thrown in.

It follows the story of real-estate couple Jim and Sara Evers who take a detour from a trip to the lake to look at a property.

Here, they meet the elegant Master Gracey and the other haunted souls of the house.

It turns out that Sara Evers looks a lot like the late Elizabeth who supposedly killed herself hundreds of years ago.

And you guessed it – she was the ill-fated lover of Master Gracey who’s desperate to reunite with her!

101. “Love endures all, no reason, no rhyme. It lasts forever and forever all the time.” – Madame Leota

102. Sara Evers: To love someone so much and then to lose them so suddenly. I can’t imagine how awful that must be. –

Master Gracey: If you truly love someone, they never leave. They remain in your heart forever.

103. “Find the thing that must be read, lest your heart be filled with dread.” – Madame Leota

104. Madame Leota: Evil and darkness have fallen this night. But now, to survive, you must gain new sight.

Jim: I must first gain new underwear.

105. Michael: Dad? Jim: Yeah, son… Michael: I see dead people.

106. Master Gracey: You have very beautiful children, Ms. Evers.

Jim: I kicked in some chromosomes, too.

107. Madame Leota: Dark spirits from the grave come forth. Lift us from the black. And show us, show us the way back.

Jim: Dark spirits? Hey, no dark spirits! Don’t you make no dark spirits come out!

108. “Tell me why not. This whole thing was my fault. We should’ve never been here in the first place. Supposed to be at the lake. We’d be sitting by a warm fire right now. And I made us come here. And now it’s too late.” – Jim

109. “Man, don’t think just because you pull out your sword I’m going to let you marry my wife.”

Is the Haunted Mansion scary?

The ride itself isn’t so much scary as it is spooky.

The dark nature of the ride and the booming voice of the Ghost Host might scare more sensitive children.

But I’d say that the elements of the macabre in this ride will probably fascinate kids more than scare them.

Generally, I’d say go with yours (and your kids’) sensibilities – you know yourselves best!

What was the curse in Haunted Mansion?

There are different curses in the Haunted Mansion movies.

But in the 2003 Eddie Murphy flick, the ghosts are stuck in the mansion as the truth isn’t revealed about how Elizabeth died.

As a result, Gracey, Ramsley, and every other ghost that once worked in the house is stuck there!

Why is there a bullet hole in the Haunted Mansion?

Near the end of the ballroom scene in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion, you’ll spot a bullet hole.

Although you might think this was left to represent the dueling brothers, it was actually left by a guest!

In the summer of 1974, a guest decided to fire multiple rounds into the wall (Anaheim Police confirmed the pistol to be a .22 caliber).

You can still spot the bullet holes in the ballroom wall to this day.

Is Haunted Mansion 2023 a remake?33

It certainly is remake of the 2003 Eddie Murphy film, but it has a slightly different plot line.

This remake follows the original ride more closely and features characters like the Hat Box Ghost and the Hatchet Bride.

It’s also slightly darker and has a greater emphasis on the grief of the central characters.

How much did Haunted Mansion 2023 cost?

The Haunted Mansion film released in 2023 is said to have a budget of around $150 million (with an equal advertising budget).

There you have it: a list of amazing Haunted Mansion quotes that’ll truly spook you silly!
