Editorial Reviews

Jesse McLaughlin’s sitting on top of the world. He’s a talented artist with a growing career and a beautiful girlfriend. And he’s moving into a magnificent house. A very special house. A house which will plunge him into an incredible adventure…one where all of his dreams, fantasies and nightmares will be realized. He’ll meet his 175-year-old great-great grandfather, encounter a giant barbarian, confront a pterodactyl, discover a crystal skull with magical life-restoring powers and more. And he’ll be thrust into a life-and-death struggle, encountering things guaranteed to horrify and delight – all without ever leaving this house.

This non-related sequel is so sweet-natured, so tame and family orientated that to assume otherwise is completely ludicrous. There is nothing in this movie that could possibly rate it above a PG, max. I wouldn't even have reservations letting younger children watch House 2.
A new house has a 20-something yuppie called Jesse (Arye Gross) move in with his girlfriend Kate (Lar Park-Lincoln). His friend Charlie (Jonathan Stark), a music agent, arrives with his new diva discovery Jana (Amy Yasbeck) to help him thru the unfamiliar first few days. The house is where Jesse's parents were killed when he was just a baby and it full of many curiosities.
Crafted in a bizarre gothic-Aztec style the house itself is a marvellous set and the many rooms and passages are as mysterious to us as they are to Jesse. Sitting on one of his many mantelpieces is a crystal skull that fascinates him for some reason. He even misses his housewarming party while studying the skull's history.
His studies lead him to dig up the grave of his great, great grandfather, or Gramps (Royal Dano), where he discovers the old coot isn't dead just in limbo. The person who possesses the skull is granted eternal youth but it also warps the space-time continuum within the House.
Gramps comes home with Jesse, is more enthralled by Kleenex boxes and TV than the mysteries around him and ducks for cover whenever someone from another time comes to steal the skull. Just like the first movie different rooms lead into different time zones. Jesse and Charlie have many hilarious adventures battling caveman, dinosaurs, Aztecs an evil cowboy called Slim. The one that killed Jesse's parents and betrayed Gramps over a century ago.

Fun but dumb, "House II: The Second Story" is an altogether different tale than that of the original "House," starring William Katt. In the second installment, a yuppie couple (Arye Gross and Lar Park Lincoln) inherit a mansion, only to discover an alternate universe inside. Hijinks ensue when the lucky owner reunites with his undead great-great-grandfather and, along with his goofy buddy, battles baby pterodactyls, angry outlaws and Bill Maher.

Although a character in "Scream 2" cites the film as a superior sequel, "House II" does little to one-up its predecessor. Taking on a much lighter tone and with little to no violence, this sequel is more like a campy spoof of the first film, which in and of itself was a silly affair. No worries, though, as once you know what to expect, you can have a good time with the film. The performances across the board are light-hearted and fun, with plenty of lovable goofballs to go around (a sequel concerning these characters would be a good time). The score by Harry Manfredini is most memorable, as you'll be humming the film's main theme not long after the credits have rolled.

Writer/director Ethan Wiley may not have created much of a horror film, but his blend of the supernatural and absurd with a hint of Western makes for a winning recipe that just can't be matched. Those expecting bloodshed and jump-scares will be left in the cold, but perhaps with a few drinks in hand and with the right expectations, you'll find "House II: The Second Story" a film deserving of the title "cult classic."

So unique and hilariously bizarre!. It plays like a great kid's movie. It is all over the place and full of wacky twists and scenes. You will find everything you could ever want in this movie and more: a lovable alcoholic reminiscing great great great undead grandfather, a caterpillar-dog, pterodactyl baby, a cowboy zombie, and even an expert electrician and adventurer (played by John Ratzenberger!!!).

When the director/writer was approached with the opportunity to make this film, he knew it would be the last time he would ever get complete free reign...so he chose to put everything he ever wanted to make a movie about in this movie. It is an adventure of the imagination.

People hated it because the title and advertisement connected it with an R-rated horror film that has (virtually) nothing to do with the movie.

I remember walking up to grocery store (at the time I lived in a very small town) when I was a kid with my aunt (who's only six years older than me). The grocery store had a very limited VHS rentals, in which we rented Critters 2 and House II. I had seen the first House a few years before when my parents bought it. And I seen the original Critters on the big screen, as my uncle demanded that the movie was funny, but mom and grandma had a different opinion after taking my aunt and me to see it. Anyway, I have fond memories of House II, despite it being less creepy than the first one. House II has more comedy, prehistoric creatures (and 80's cheap special effects), a crystal skull, and zombie gunslingers. Overall, it is cheesy horror fun.
