"What good is a million dollars when you're dead?"
Eccentric millionaire Steven Price (Geoffrey Rush) throws a birthday
party for his wife (Famke Janssen) at a haunted house that used to be
an insane asylum before the inmates revolted and killed everyone
inside. A group of strangers invited to the party are offered
$1,000,000 each if they can survive the night in the house. As strange
things start happening, the guests question whether Price is behind it
all or if there really is some evil force at work in the house on
Being a big fan of the original House on Haunted Hill, a classic B
movie from William Castle, I had low hopes for this remake at the time
it was released. I figured going into it that it would have the worst
excesses of modern horror films (more violence, gore, nudity, F bombs
every other word, clichéd jump scares, etc.). And while it certainly
does have some of those things (although not to the degree I was
dreading) it also has a lot of humor and a self-awareness about it that
makes it fun to watch. The cast is pretty good with Geoffrey Rush and
Famke Janssen the standouts. Their scenes together are the highlights
of the movie. Chris Kattan is amusing but his part in the climax is the
stuff of unintended comedy legend. Also love the nods to Vincent Price
with Rush's character. The CGI effects aren't the best but that's a
minor complaint in a movie like this. It's not scary in the least but
it is entertaining, something it has in common with the original. Not
bad for a remake of a classic.
