When the camera tracks in on Schecter in the control room in the haunted house, there are two very conspicuously CG-added Blockbuster video boxes under some paper. They wobble as the camera moves closer to them. See more »
I've never in my life met an executive who could tie their shoes, much less rewire an entire building.
There's always exceptions.
No. Come on, what's the truth?
The truth is if we keep taking rights, we're going to have to end up where we started.

Not bad at all for a remake (and maybe better than the original)
I've seen some of the comments on the film here, and would beg to differ with many. I found the film to be entertaining (wouldn't William Castle have wanted that?) and that it actually paid homage to the original in so many ways (how many remakes ever do that? Generally they add a flavor-of-the-month star, a bunch of irrelevant plot changes and a soundtrack from a has-been band or one that should never have been). As a bonus, a supernatural element was brought to this film that wasn't there in the original version. I've seen a lot of complaining about the ending, but hey, life sometimes sucks and I could certainly see something like that happening to me. To tell the truth, I'd have to say that this remake was better than the first version. And this is from a stone-cold believer that Karloff was the best Frankenstein monster and Lugosi the best Dracula. Tongue in cheek this movie is -- James Whale would have loved it.
