Rich oddball Frederick Loren has a proposal for five guests at a possibly haunted mansion: show up, survive a night filled with scares and receive $10,000 each. The guest of honor is Loren’s estranged wife, Annabelle, who, with her secret lover, Dr. Trent, has concocted her own scheme to scare Loren’s associate, Nora Manning, into shooting the potentially crazy millionaire. However, more spooks and shocks throw a wrench into the plan.
1959, 75 minutes, USA, Directed by William Castle
"There is some good humor in the dialog which not only pays off well against the ghostly elements, but provides a release for laughter so it does not explode in the suspense sequences."- VARIETY
"House On Haunted Hill, unlike the majority of recent horror films which have depended on mutilations or monsters for chills, reverts to the fundamental of the ghost story -- fear of the unknown."- George Bourke, MIAMI HERALD
"House on Haunted Hill is a classic in its own right, exhibiting the ability for horror to remain timeless."- Stephanie Archer, FILM INQUIRY
"It's so spooky, even spooks are spooked."- David C. Vincent, TAMPA BAY TIMES
