Trivia

A third installment in the series had been planned, but poor DVD sales for Return to House on Haunted Hill (2007) led Dark Castle to cancel these plans. 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 »

Gore and blood aplenty
7 October 2007 | by (Waikiki a suburb of Honolulu) – See all my reviews

While special effects were pretty outstanding the over use of them, in my opinion made the sequel much weaker than the original. I also felt the character development was a bit shy of interesting. I can't help but compare it to the original which also had spectacular effects however hit a higher level of suspense in between the more gruesome scenes, also the sex, in particular that which went on in one pretty gross lesbian scene with mutilated ghosts, really served no purpose in my mind to the general plot which is of course about helping out the poor trapped souls, who still long for release from the insane asylum doctor's fortress on the hill. There was a lot less use of the simple terrifying look of vintage medical equipment and an old asylum in this film as well although there were glimpses of the old asylum which had a lot of lighting designed much later than the art-deco period the hospital was supposedly from. All in all I think there were some good actors practicing their craft and a weak location with a lot of skilled prop people trying to take the viewer to a scary old hospital. It must have been tough following the previous cast which had a real Oscar winner on board. This film is way to gruesome for the kids, and if you were impressed with the first one you may be a little disappointed with this obviously lower budget sequel. Still it was something to watch.
