A classic 'haunted house' flick. Not as scary as it was back in the day, but still a fun watch. Some of Vincent Price's best moments are here.

"The House On Haunted Hill" by Yojimbo

A group of strangers are challenged to spend the night in a haunted house by an eccentric millionaire, but are the ghosts real or is there a flesh and blood murderer on the loose?

With its amusingly hokey introduction by Mr. Price himself who talks directly to the audience and a collection of B movie stereotypes who are gathered in the classic Agatha Christie style, the film is very much like an extended episode of The Twilight Zone. The Ghost Train standard effects and hammy performances all add to the overall kitsch appeal and the twist is obvious but fun. Silly rather than sca...

For it's time, 'House on Haunted Hill' was the Thriller of the century. Vincent Price plays the rich Frederick Loren who is known for his money, and for having many wives. But little is known about his freakish true nature.
