Eight years after the millionaire Mr. Price rented Hill House for a macabre birthday party, a team of researchers dares to come in, looking for a precious statue, a satanic idol who is believed to possess demonic powers.
When an eccentric millionaire offer a group of opposites $1,000,000 to spend the night in a so called "Haunted House" with a murderous past, they figure it is a quick way to get quick money and leave. All of them are sure it is some made up story just to mess with their heads a little and test their courage. But, once they stay in the house they start to think about the mistake they made in coming there when mysterious things start to happen.Written by
(at around 20 mins) When the camera tracks in on Schecter in the control room in the haunted house, there are two very conspicuously CG-added Blockbuster video boxes under some paper. They wobble as the camera moves closer to them. See more »

In the scene where Sara and Eddie go into Dr. Vannicut's office and discover an old picture of the staff of the hospital, the scene in the final cut of the film is a lot shorter. In the original version of the scene they explore the room a lot more before finding the picture, in fact they find lots of body parts in pickel jars and a lot of creepy paperwork! This scene was also shortened due to pacing and running time. See more »
I've never seen William Castle's original from 1958,but in my opinion 1999 version isn't completely bad.Director William Malone creates some atmosphere and suspense during the first hour,but everything is almost completely ruined by awful ending.There's some good gore,striking visuals and atmospheric sets,but the conclusion is absolutely lame(the CGI effects look really fake!).If you like horror movies give this one a look,just don't expect something impressive.
