A family moves into a mansion in a crime-infested urban neighborhood, but the ghost of an actor who died in the mansion is not the only thing they need to watch out for: there is also a punk street gang roaming the area looking for trouble. Tom Bresnahan (Ski School), Jill Whitlow (Night Of The Creeps) and Todd Bridges (Diff rent Strokes) star in the haunted-house thriller Twice Dead. You will be twice as scared as usual.

Both films are fun to watch, but certainly aren't great and won't be something I need to watch on a regular basis.
The first film, The Evil, has Richard "You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with an expert in guerrilla warfare, with a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Vietnam his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill! Period! Win by attrition. Well Rambo was the best" Crenna as a doctor who buys a creepy old house(with a history of course) along with his wife, in order to set up a drug rehabilitation clinic. Some buddies drop by to help out with the gutting and cleaning of the house-one of them Andrew Prine-but during the renovation, Crenna unleashes The Evil from the basement. "The Evil" being Satan himself. The Evil puts the house in supernatural lockdown, and proceeds to kill off the "guests" in ghostly hocus pocus-y ways. Crenna must now come to grips with what he really believes if he wants to battle The Evil.
Not a bad film, the supernatural shenanigans are fun-Andrew Prine saws off half of his hand and there are two shocking scenes of electrocution as well. Worth a viewing.
Next is Twice Dead, which is kind of like Casper the Friendly Ghost with an attitude.
Jill Whitlow(from Night of the Creeps) and her family move into a house haunted by the ghost of an actor who'd committed suicide years before.Read more ›
This is celebrated B movie entertainment. Simple plots, plenty of gore; feature secluded evil old mansions, and all the other elements that make these movies simple and entertaining Cult Classics. Although these aren't movies for everyone, most horror fans will appreciate them.

You should definitely check these out if you're a fan of horror, Cult Classics, and especially if you're a B movie fan.
