Trivia

Even though the original film was released in 1999 and the sequel was released in 2007, it's set only a couple years apart. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Kyle: Pretty creepy, isn't it? You know, they say that the souls of the people that died here apparently still haunt the house.
Michelle: You know, they also say that people who believe in ghost should be on Prozac.
Kyle: I'm sorry, Michelle, I wasn't listening, I was looking at your breasts.

Crazy Credits

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 »

A big ole bite of a pooh samich!!!
19 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's rare that I comment on films, but I really feel the need to say something about this pile of trash that has the cheek to, in any way, be associated to the masterpiece that is "House on Haunted Hill".

To start with, I watched the first one and loved it ... very creepy setting, atmospheric music supplied by Marilyn Manson, reasonable story line, good acting for the main part, slightly disappointing ending ... but all-in-all a worthy remake to a good horror film.

Return to house on haunted hill, well- I finished watching it and I felt like any hope I had left for the horror genre had been sapped from my soul over the hour and a half it took for this film to play out and finally come to an end. It felt like a life time- the plot was non-existent, the characters were awful, the acting was ... words escape me! The special effects were reasonable, but I just can't believe that anyone could, in good conscience, spend an investors money and turn out this heap of garbage. I really wish I hadn't seen it and I would advise anyone, who is a fan of the horror genre, to steer well clear.

It's only redeeming quality was it did finish, I just which I'd never started watching it in the first place.

You'll notice there's no spoilers in this review- watch the film and it manages to spoil itself plenty! Doesn't need my help.
