House On Haunted Hill [1959]

“Only the ghosts in this house are glad we’re here.”

Call me old fashioned, but this 1959 version of “House On Haunted Hill” is much scarier and much more enjoyable than the dreadful remake. Vincent Price is a lot of fun to watch as the man who invites 5 strangers to a party and offers each of them $10 000 if they can spend the night in a haunted house. Great plot, chilling atmosphere and an edge of your seat finale. A perfect movie to watch on a rainy night.

Fun fact: “The large grosses for this film were noticed by Alfred Hitchcock. This led him to create his own low-budget horror film – Psycho”.

 Rating: 3/4
