The house on skull mountain certainly is weird..... It's definitely without a doubt a very poorly made movie. The acting is terrible, it's not scary AT ALL, and the script is crap. The plot is muddled and jumbled, doesn't make much sense. This movie also suffers from being just flat out boring, it just won't hold an audiences attention at all, the construction is just too low quality and poor to entertain any member of any audience. The effects are very dated and cheesy as well. The acting is literally like straight out of a porn film, I mean they don't even try here. The director must have just been looking for a quick buck, because he couldn't have cared much about this lazy flop, it would've shown If he did. This movie just isn't worth anything in the cinematic realm..... I mean not a thing. 1/10.
