Geeks and Ghouls win in the end.
11 November 2006 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"House of Horror" a nice funny crypt episode with a good twist ending makes it one of the better season 5 episodes. The story centers around a college pledge fraternity that's ruled by mean spirited leaders who try to groom geeks into the fold. I must say Kevin Dillion does a very good job as a mean pledge master who issues a challenge to all wanna be's you must face an initiation in a spooky house! I guess many people can relate to this because if your viewed as different by the majority, then you suffer until you accept the rules till you become one of them by showing that your cool. Only as you know by now with the E.C. comic tradition, those who are cruel to people have it haunt them back in the end! As it occurs in this haunted house, the mighty Greek leader takes a turn for the worse welcome for an initiation for ghouls! Again good, comical funny episode with a good twist.
