L.A. Weekly
Low-budget, high-camp.
50
The kind of horror movie that's not a bit scary and quite a bit gross.
40
Still nothing but a gussied-up B movie.

For horror fans in a forgiving mood, it's an adequate fear fix.

Chicago Tribune
Contains too little of the original's campy spirit and too many whistles, bells, explosions and screams.
30
Austin Chronicle
It's all a bit of overkill.
25
New York Post
Slow-moving, yawn-inducing remake.
20
Newsweek
Everyone in the film is either annoying or unpleasant.

I would rather feed Jesse Helms a rancid peanut butter sandwich, and then have him slowly lick my face off, than sit through House on Haunted Hill again.

If your name's on the marquee, chances are your agent's already dead.
