One of the better haunted house movies

"House on Haunted Hill" is a horror movie which may have been unfairly relegated to the bargain bin of history due to the gimmickry of its infamous filmmaker, William Castle. Indeed, during its first showings in the fifties, a skeleton would be lowered down into the audience during a key scene - but apparently this trick was resigned when cinema goers started throwing things at it.

Castle, as it turns out, didn't need to resort to such things. He was a more than capable filmmaker: "House on Haunted Hill" features many genuinely shocking, and even frightening, moments.

The plot concerns an eccentric millionaire - played by, who else? Vincent Price - who invites a group of people to stay in a supposedly haunted house. If they can last the night, he will give them $10,000.

Of course, there are signs that the house may indeed be haunted, but everything is not what it seems, and the guests may have more to fear than spooks.

Aside from the indelible Vincent Price, the movie also stars Elisha Cook Jr., a character actor who looks like a smaller, traumatised Jack Nicholson, and Julie Mitchum (brother of Robert) in the last film of her negligible acting career.

I was a little troubled by the ending, which seems to try for an open-ended lack of resolution, but doesn't quite get there. Instead it made me think I'd misunderstood something.

Aside from this, "House on Haunted Hill" is a must watch for horror fans.

All Buildup, No Payoff

Vincent Price and the wife are creepy. Elisha Cook is freaking everyone out with this ghost stories. It's a house of murder. The old lady (caretaker?) popping out of the shadows made me jump. There's a nice plot twist. But then the movie drove itself off a cliff. That skeleton. C'mon. I've seen scarier skeletons at the chiropractor's office. And then a semi-confession and boom, movie pretty much ends. It's like back in in the VCR days when you'd tape a late-night movie and your tape would run out before the movie ended. Maybe they ran out of money before they filmed a proper 3rd act.

A classic Horror Movie

The House on Haunted hill was a great picture, this movie was from a generation where Horror was in it's prime. The 20's, 30's,40's, and 50's and some 60's were great horror decades. This movie is from that era.

The story goes as follows, a rich man and his wife invite five people to his mansion. But this is not any ordinary mansion, supposedly it's haunted. He invites them for a "Ghost Party" and starting at midnight, whoever survives the night until the morning will win $10,000. At first everyone thinks this guys party is a joke, but then things start to get creepier and out of place. Heads appear, ghost appear, a woman kills herself (or so we think). And the night becomes a living hell for each individual person.

The Five Guest 1. A Doctor 2. An old Widowed woman 3. A pilot 4. A young woman who works for the host company 5. A previous owner of the mansion, who knows it's haunted and dangerous

As things play out, we find out that some things have been a scary joke,and and some things have not. Out of these seven people the host and his wife included, three of them play major roles in the nights events. As the movie progressed I knew something was fishy about the whole event, it's not until halfway into the film I found out what was really going on, and I loved how the story play's out. I won't spoil anything then what I have already. Let's just say it's a game of cat and mouse sort of.

I loved The House on Haunted Hill, a classic 50's movie that never gets old. 10/10.
