A worth-while "Old Haunted House" film!
31 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Henry and friends investigate "creep house", a supposedly 'haunted house' in town. (See the plot synopsis).

Even tho it's a comedy, this seldom-seen film has all the time-honored 'old house' bits: shadows of clutching hands, trapdoors & secret panels, a cemetery, a 'live mummy', skeletons, a 'live' suit of armor and MORE! A most enjoyable combination of comedy and chills. This film is "dated" but that only adds to it's charm!

I really wish that they would show the Henry Aldrich series on TV; it's definitely worth seeing and taping.

As the other reviewer said,"a must-see film" if they ever show it!
