Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"This is what she used on my brother and her sister...Hacked 'em to pieces. We found parts of the bodies scattered all over the house. Funny thing is, the heads were never found. Hands, feet...things like that, but no heads."--Watson Pritchard (Elisha Cook Jr.) after pulling a knife out of a drawer and brandishing it at the other guests
"You mean there's two heads just floating around here'"--Lance Schroeder (Richard Long)
"You can hear them at night; they whisper to each other."
  - Pritchard

Product Description:

Vincent Price has one of his juiciest roles in this haunted-house thriller as millionaire playboy Frederick Loren, who invites five guests out to a genuine haunted house, offering them each $10,000 if they spend the night. Elisha Cook Jr. plays one of the guests, a nervous alcoholic who has been in this house before and witnessed some terrible things. Mr. Loren's beautiful but treacherous wife (Carol Ohmart) is also present--and might be out to kill Frederick during the course of the evening; then again, he might be out to kill her. Severed heads, a skeleton, an acid vat, ghostly screams, and a noose that creeps around on its own and strangles unsuspecting victims are just some of the treats in a film that has been spooking delighted audiences on late-night TV for decades. Producer-director William Castle (THE TINGLER) claimed this was filmed in a process called Emergo, which meant that at a key moment a glow-in-the-dark skeleton on a wire was rigged to sail over the audience's heads. The skeleton is long since gone, but the goofy thrills remain in this classic tale, from a script by Robb White.

Rating 5.0 House on Haunted Hill (colorized) Movie Lover: from Elizabethtown, PA US -- April, 8, 2010

What a great movie, classic horror is an understatement. I love this movie in color. It was so well done the colors are all period correct. The black and white version has a little different feel. I found it fun to compare both versions of the film. It is my hope that a new generation enjoys this movie as much as I
