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
William Malone got the idea to set the movie in a former insane asylum when he was filming an episode of Tales from the Crypt (1989) in a former asylum and noticed that crew members were running scared out of the basement, not wanting to film there. See more »

I gave you a goddamn guest list two pages long. Where the hell are they?
Shredded. Sorry. Decided to whip up one of my own: a group so hungry for money they'd be willing to do anything. I thought you'd be more comfortable with your peers.

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 »
First off let's get this out of the way,, of course folks the Original with Vincent Price was better.. that being said,, I like how this one doesn't entirely follow the original,, case in point,, in this "new" one the house used to be an old Asylum where hundreds , perhaps thousands were mistreated to cruel and unusual punishment, most of the film does follow the original,, same premise,, millionaire invites 10 people to spend the night and if they survive the money is theirs. what I liked about this film , is all of the special fx. all of the blood and gore that we wanted in the first one and couldn't get because it was just the dawn of color, and the technology obviously wasn't there yet,, all in all I think this one was pretty good,, so I apologize to Vincent Price,,, but still the ORIGINAL was better as far as plot and acting wise goes,,,
