It started when five people agreed to spend one night in a haunted house . . .

The mercenary character of Harue ('Kalita Rainford') is revealed, only in the special features of the blu-ray, to be a lesbian member of a cult that worships Baphomet and is in search of the idol for her own means. If the viewer chooses for her not to resist the lesbian ghosts early in the film, she will survive the events of the film and retrieve the idol on the beach at the end of the film. See more »
Ariel refers to the 5 employees who survived the fire that occurred in the asylum in 1931 as orderlies, which they weren't. They were: Ruth Anne Stockard (head nurse), Thomas Steven Price and Adolphus Jenzen (electroshock), Jasper Marr (hydrotherapy) and Franklin Baker (pathologist). See more »

There's an extra scene on a beach after the end credits finish. It shows a couple frolicking on the beach and, predictably, finding the Baphomet statue buried in the sand. See more »
I am glad that the ghost characters from the earlier film were explored further in this sequel. I never completely embraced the concept of what looked like a misty Rorschach Test enveloping and destroying characters in Dark Castle's first "Haunted Hill" venture.
The role of the doctor (expertly played by Jeffrey Combs) is sufficiently eerie and he's given more to do in this film. Throw in his supernatural victims from years past and you have a great haunted house! Granted, the acting in this film is mostly sub-par, save for the lead actress (Righetti) and Andrew Lee Potts who provides comedic relief. Also, the kills are creative enough to keep die-hard horror fans entertained. And the DVD's extras are fun to watch, probably to make up for the film's short length.
If Warner decides to cultivate its storehouse of horror remakes and make direct-to-video sequels, so be it. I would look forward to another "Thirteen Ghosts" film or "House of Wax" chapter.
