Editorial Reviews

Sarah Wolfe was the only living survivor from the massacre at the Vanacutt Mansion, but no one believed her claims that ghosts were responsible for the gruesome murders that took place there. Now her recent and questionable suicide leaves her sister, Ariel, no choice but to devote herself to finding out who - or what - was responsible for her death. Ariel discovers that Sarah sent her the diary of the sadistic Dr. Vanacutt just before she died, offering clues to the diabolical evil that resides within the house. But the diary also makes Ariel a target in a deadly treasure hunt that leads a group of unwitting victims back to the Vanacutt Mansion, reawakening the terror imprisoned within the house on the hill. This time, the house and the evil spirits inside are out to make sure that no one leaves alive.

I keep reading the reviews posted here and everyone keeps saying Sarah was the only survivor. Maybe all of you have a different version of the movie, mine shows her AND Eddie Baker on the ledge at the end. Did she push him off the ledge? I hope your reviews on the sequel are more accurate

Eight years have elapsed since Eddie and Sara escaped from The House on Haunted Hill. Sara, as you would expect, has had a few issues dealing with what she saw on The Hill. However, I wouldn't worry too much about her. She is murdered within the first few minutes of the film. Enter her sister, Ariel, who wants to know why her sister died. Of course, discovering why Sara was murdered has to involve a trip back to Dr. Vannacutt's asylum. And then, the supernatural slaughter begins...
It has to be said that the film, Return to House on Haunted Hill, is not anywhere near the calibre of the 1999 version. However, I don't think you can fairly compare a horror movie that sported an Oscar winner to a straight-to-DVD shocker.
Obviously, the producers of this movie decided early on that they were not going to waste their budget on "big-name" stars. There are only a few recognizable faces. And the only person that reprises his role from the earlier film is Jeffrey (re-animator) Combs.
The movie itself is definitely worth a watch. It does not have any pretensions, and I doubt whether it will be on anyone's top-ten horror movie lists. But it has enough thrills and chills to keep viewers interested. The sense of eerie menace that radiated from the House on Haunted Hill in the first instalment is still there. The visual effects seem unbounded and without flaw. And, of course, the exceptional Combs is as spooky as ever. Also, there are more than a few glimpses of naked women (who, to me, seem to be only one carrot-stick away from anorexics), which is a bit annoying. But I am sure the boys, and maybe even some of the girls, in the audience will love that.
In short, Return to House on Haunted Hill is a cheap and tacky gore fest.

The Hi-def "choose your own outcome" feature is neat and good for a couple hours of entertainment. My criticism would be that there are not enough outcomes/different 'paths' to take...Although it is quite entertaining to encounter the 'game-over' ending roughly in the middle of the flick. If you're curious about this feature, you might enjoy this movie. The film itself, whether in edited/interactive or unedited form, is pretty weak. It doesn't scare and the dialogue, as expected, leaves much to be desired.

I am glad that the ghost characters from the earlier film were explored further in this sequel. I never completely embraced the concept of what looked like a misty Rorschach Test enveloping and destroying characters in Dark Castle's first "Haunted Hill" venture.

The role of the doctor (expertly played by Jeffrey Combs) is sufficiently eerie and he's given more to do in this film. Throw in his supernatural victims from years past and you have a great haunted house!

Granted, the acting in this film is mostly sub-par, save for the lead actress (Righetti) and Andrew Lee Potts who provides comedic relief. Also, the kills are creative enough to keep die-hard horror fans entertained. And the DVD's extras are fun to watch, probably to make up for the film's short length.

If Warner decides to cultivate its storehouse of horror remakes and make direct-to-video sequels, so be it. I would look forward to another "Thirteen Ghosts" film or "House of Wax" chapter.

In my opinion, "Return To House On Haunted Hill" was a very good sequel to "House On Haunted Hill" (although it would have been better if one or both or the survivors from the first movie had been in this).

It is gory, suspeceful, and has mostly origional deaths - what more could you want from this type of movie? There were a lot more people in the house this time than in the first (about 10) so there is a higher body count, too.

Althought there is quite a lot of gore in this movie (a lot more than in the first movie) it wasn't as gory or over the top as most people were suggesting. But the best thing about the movie I thought was that, while most horror movies either concentrate on either being suspenceful and creepy, or on being violent and bloody, this movie had both gory deaths and suspenceful scenes, so you get the best of both worlds.

Overall a very good sequel, which I'm sure fans of the first movie will enjoy. After seeing this I'm certainly hoping that there will be a third movie in the series.

Return To House On Haunted Hill isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. It's a horror movie, full stop. You're not going to learn the lesson of life from it, or will be thinking about it after the credits have rolled, but it uses up some time. What is even more fun is that on the blu ray and hd versions of the movie, you can play the movie your way - choosing the fate of the characters etc, something I'd only previously seen on the third Final Destination movie.

Apparently, this had 96 different ways of playing the movie. It's quite funny as the first option is right near the start, but then there's not another one for quite a while - but I suppose it depends on which option you choose. The options are yes or no, but there is a time limit (a syringe with the plunger going down), so you have to choose fast. I always wonder if there's an option you can choose that will finish the film well before it's time - we managed to do it, but it was roughly about half way through at the time.

The good thing about this is you can make the film last as long or as short as you want. It does get a bit annoying trying to choose the options and some of them don't come out with the results you want. (For example, you choose to save a character, and they die anyway.)

There's not much of a storyline. It's a good follow up to the original, but the storyline is pretty much average. Did they deliberately set out to make the audience hate the characters? The gore is pretty good, including a rather pretty girl getting her face sliced off (plastic surgery at its best?), and one guy getting pulled to pieces - literally. It's enough to make my stomach turn anyway.

The ending was a bit of a surprise, and not totally expected.
