House on Haunted Hill


Steven Price (Geoffrey Rush), who got rich designing horror rides for theme parks, invites several people to spend the night at an old house in Los Angeles that was once used as an insane asylum. The 1958 original had a plastic skeleton for audiences to laugh and scream at, but this remake takes things a lot more seriously. This house is so haunted by its former patients that the entire labyrinthine building is sighing and moaning. Intense visual effects, but all the noise and nastiness drain the fun. Rush is worth a look though as a Vincent Price clone.

1999-U.S. 93 min. Color. Directed byĀ William Malone. Cast: Geoffrey Rush (Steven Price), Famke Janssen (Evelyn Stockard-Price), Taye Diggs (Eddie Baker), Bridgette Wilson, Peter Gallagher, Chris Kattan… Lisa Loeb. Cameo: Peter Graves.

Trivia: Co-produced by Robert Zemeckis. Elizabeth Hurley and Cindy Crawford were allegedly considered for parts. Followed by a direct-to-DVD sequel, Return to House on Haunted Hill (2007).
