The plot revolves around Liz who is having her 21st birthday party and finds out that her mother, Emily is an evil witch who wants to kill her and steal her youth so that she can go without aging for another 21 years. Everyone else in the house is killed in supernatural ways except Liz, who has to not only try to survive her mothers powers and all of her friends who have come back to life as zombies, but she also has to break the curse before midnight. Edge of your seat action and thrills ensue in this well deserved horror comedy watch, that will conger up memories of such classics as Evil Dead, Return of the Living Dead and Dead Alive.

Trivia

The Kevin character was initially intended to be the main character after Sean Weathers watched Evil Dead II (1987). This was changed in the final draft as Sean felt that people would not be as interested in a man-in-peril formula as they would a woman. See more »

Excellent movie!!!
17 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A fun low budget horror movie that tries and successfully does cover all of its bases. Haunted house, the undead, witches, ghosts, zombies, curses, demonic possession, black magic and there may be three or four other things I'm leaving out! This movie is closer to an hour rather than the generous seventy two minute running time it's listed as, but there is a lot going on in that time frame. It reminds me of the older Hollywood movies from the thirties which were around an hour or so as well and told a very tight story, maybe because this is shot in black and white as well. The major thing that makes "House Of The Damned" stand out from a lot of crappy low budget horror movies is that as opposed to just moving from site gag to site gag it has an actual story-line to follow and it gets you wrapped up in wanting to know what's going to happen next. So if you are of fan of camp like me this movie is definitely worth a watch.
