Editorial Reviews

Is there any possible downside to accepting an invitation from Vincent Price to spend an evening in a creepy mansion that was built on something called 'Haunted Hill?' If so, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett of Mystery Science Theater 3000® fame couldn't find it! In fact they were so eager to join Mr. Price and his terrifying moustache that they riffed the film live, on-stage, and now you can reap the rewards from the safety of home with this Live show DVD!

Yes, horror classic House on Haunted Hill provides a mesmerizing walk down 'people actually used to find this SCARY?!?' lane. Join the RiffTrax® guys as they bring their special brand of rapid-fire comedic commentary to every skeleton-hanging-from-visible-wires, clumsy sexual overtone, and a stunningly inept test pilot whose 'heroics' typically lead him to bloody his own nose after locking himself in a broom closet!

The guys are joined by guest riffer Paul F. Tompkins, comedy person extraordinaire and quite a snappy dresser to boot! They also riff two vintage, never-before-seen shorts live on-stage: Paper and I, in which a small boy is haunted by a talking paper bag, and Magical Disappearing Money, about a supermarket witch whose main concern is that you don't spend too much on rice. No, seriously, that's what they're really about!

Join Mike, Kevin, Bill and Paul for an unforgettable All Hallow's Eve of mind-melting comedy!

They're just as silly as they sound and the guys make excellent use of them.

I was lucky enough to catch the Rifftrax Live show in San Francisco--honestly was THE funniest thing I have EVER seen in a theatre!

I only hope Rifftrax releases more movies, but this time without the audience distractions.

I'll cut to the chase. As someone who owns and loves the Rifftrax of House on Haunted Hill, I was holding off on this because I didn't think I'd enjoy seeing a live riffing of a movie I already have a Rifftrax version of. "Afterall," I thought, "won't it just be the same riffs with audience laughter and the occasional line flub?"

No! Mike, Kevin and Bill really do bother to give us a show. Not only do you get two great shorts (the grocery witch short is now one of our personal favorites, my wife quotes from it often), an actually funny guest appearance by Paul F. Tompkins (a great comedian, see his stand-up act somewhere if you can) who tags along for a short and has a brief cameo during the actual movie, but the live cut on House on Haunted Hill is very worth it in that OVER HALF the riffs are BRAND NEW! It is NOT a re-hash of the original Rifftrax, and my wife and I both agreed the new material is actually funnier, and this is coming from two people who love the regular DVD.

My one and only complaint is they play the colorized version of the movie. While the colorization here looks much better than it used to when they first started using the technology, the fact ramains that HoHH just works so much better in black and white, the light and shadow of the black and white cinematography lend a ton to the atmosphere to the film and the spook-show shenanigans just don't work very well without it.

But that's relatively minor. If you liked the original Rifftrax of HoHH, this live version is not a simple repeat of material. The two shorts are excellent, the guest star is funny, and the movie itself has a substantial amount of new (excellent) riffing. Tons of fun!

My 2 sons & I saw this live in the theater last October. I haven't laughed this hard at the movies since I saw "Airplane" in theaters so many years ago. This will be one of the memories that I'll have of my boys when they were 12 & 14: Looking over at them laughing so hard that they were practically doubled over in their seats. The 2 shorts included are worth the price of admission even without HoHH. A MUST SEE for fans of MST3K & clever humor. We've been waiting on this since October!

This version is not only better than the original because it's on Blu Ray; it's better because of 2 hilarious shorts and some real change-ups in the gang's riffs. They do a masterful job once again and add in a surprise 4th riffer!

When I saw the advertisement for the live show last October, I just couldn't resist the excitement of having the MST3K crew making fun of movies again. Of course, I though to myself, "this is too good to be true, they're probably not as hilarious as they used to be."

Boy was I wrong, I was pissing my pants off when I went to watch this "Riff" live last October. I hope the guys keep on doing these, because I'll make sure to go to every one they make (: I really recommend this film Riff to anyone fond of good humor and making fun of small details in good or bad movies.

"Paper & I," a supremely creepy short film about a young boy's attachment to a talking paper bag, is scarier than anything in "House on Haunted Hill," a goofy William Castle cross between "Diabolique" and "Ten Little Indians." HoHH is great fun with the riffing, especially when Elisha Cook's nebbish character comes under fire, but you never forget for a moment that you're watching a creaky melodrama that's trying with all its might (and failing miserably) to be scary. By contrast, the "Paper" short and "Magical Disappearing Money," in which a supermarket witch uses her dark powers to make shoppers save money on a variety of unappealing groceries, seem to've gone straight from the filmmakers' id to the camera, pausing only to be enacted by a cast of dazed amateurs.

The feature film is entertaining, but the two shorts are filmmaking at its most crazed. What's not to like?

Despite my poor attempt at a clever title, the Rifftrax crew is back live to riff a Vincent Price classic known as House On Haunted Hill. They also have two shorts to rip to shreds, Magical Disappearing Money which is about some drunk aunt as a witch in bad make-up trying to help people in the '70's save money on food rather than throw it away on more expensive and better food items. This one is gold for the guys as they just have a blast with the material especially making fun of the blank expressions on the actors faces and the "witch".

The second short sees comedian Paul F. Tompkins join the guys and its called "Paper & I", where a young boy has a seemingly beyond creepy attachment to a brown paper bag, so this bag comes to life at night and takes him to forests in the south, then to a paper mill all in an attempt to show him how paper is made. Also much like MST3K's "A Case of Spring Fever" the bag shows him what life would be like without paper. This is the funnier of the two shorts as its so badly acted and creepy that the guys just have a great old time with it.

The main feature is the movie which isn't a horrible film, but the acting is a bit stale and the laughable scares do make for good riffing. The guys have fun with a lot of the wholes in the movie and mainly target Lance, the test pilot who keeps falling over his own feet and hurting himself and Nora the plain jane who is so scared yet seems to just keep looking for ways to be more scared.

Like other Rifftrax live dvds the audience being there to laugh at the jokes does give it a cool feel unlike the standard yet hilarious Rifftrax dvds. Its a great one that unlike the Plan 9 live one is more comedy and less show segment based.
