House on Haunted Hill (1959) - Game of Surviving 12 hours in the haunted house

House on Haunted Hill (1959) - Five people are invited by Frederick and Annabelle Loren to spend 12 hours in the house on Haunted Hill. All who manage to do so will receive $10,000. The house is presumably haunted - one of the guests, Mr. Pritchard, who seems to know a great deal about the history of the place and says there are seven in all - but greed drives most of the victims who immediately face various threats to their lives. A chandelier almost kills one; another is haunted by the ghostly apparition of an old crone; while yet another gets a bump on the head in a mysterious room. As the guests continue to be frightened and threatened, two have their own very specific reason for being there and not everyone will live through the night.

House on Haunted Hill is quite an atmospheric movie. It has spooky background music, plenty of cobwebs, ceilings that drip blood, and organs that play all by themselves and... oh, I nearly forgot, it also has one of the best horror actors of the day - Vincent Price.

Directed by William Castle.
With Vincent Price, Carol Ohmart, Richard Long, Alan Marshal.
