Editorial Reviews

For Josh and Amanda, having to move to the remote, desolate town of Dark Falls was bad enough. But as soon as they moved into Dead House, things began to happen, things their parents couldn't see -- a ghostly shape at the window, a shadow on the wall, the way their dog kept growling at strangers, the quiet, death-pale neighbor kids. Was it the chemical spill that made the people of Dark Falls so strange, or something far more sinister?

By Tim Janson HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 26, 2006
Format: DVD
Welcome to Dead House is a pretty good family horror edition of Goose Bumps with some genuine, but not too intense scares for young one. A family of four moves into an old house in a town called Dark Falls. The name Dark Falls is appropriate as it always seems to be dark in the town. Even when the sun is out, the large, overgrown trees seem to always block it out. Josh and Amanda are the two kids that immediately have bad feelings about the town. They meet up with some other kids in town who act very strange and are very pale.

Of course the parents are typical, unbelieving parents who dismiss the kid's as just having bad dreams or the like. But the whole family will soon learn the tragic secret of Dead falls and of the hazardous chemical accident that forever changed the town years before. The film moves pretty well and provides a true sense of creepiness about the town and the new house the family is in. It's one you can watch with the whole family.

This has quickly become a family classic in our house, Particularly around Halloween. My 4 1/2, 8 1/2 and 10 years old girls love this one!
The story stems around a shady real estate salesman(aren't they all) whom offers a can't refuse deal to a unsuspecting family from 'out of town'. Unknown to the family, Dark Falls was the victim of some type of hazardous chemical spill a while back, causing the existing residents to become 'living dead'. Unfortunately for these 'living dead' corpses, they are dependent on 'the living' for nourishment.
Thus, they use this one piece of real estate property - AKA Dead House - as 'bait' to unsuspecting family's in order to feed. Without disclosing the whole storyline, I must say the thing with the dog at the end adds a nice touch. Well worth $10. I've spent twice that continually renting it at the video store!

A Kid's Review on July 5, 2004
Format: VHS Tape
Okay the story itself *RULES* and has INCREDIBLE potential. But the actors and actresses ruin it fully. The father's acting is especially horrible. The story is a little slow in execution - it takes the girl about five minutes to walk up the stairs and into the room! In fact, the whole first twenty-five minutes of the film are uneventful slum.

I grew up reading the books, but I only saw a handful of episodes when they originally aired in the middle 1990s. I checked out several Goosebumps VHS at my local library several years ago, in which one of them was Welcome to Dead House. Yes, it has a low-budget and bad acting, but I still liked it for some odd reason. I later found the VHS at a local thrift store. I later found out that the episode was released on DVD back in 2004. Luckly, a few years ago, I found the DVD thrown into the five dollar bin at Walmart!

Welcome to Dead House is a great addiction to my Goosebumps Collection.

In the early 1990s, R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps" books were a huge publishing phenomena especially with elementary and middle school students. The books were so popular that a television series based upon the books was developed. Taking a cue from shows such as THE TWILIGHT ZONE and TALES FROM THE CRYPT, each episode was preceded and concluded with an introduction from R.L. Stine himself usually ending with a twist on the tag-line for the books that "viewers beware, you're in for a scare".

WELCOME TO DEAD HOUSE originally aired as a two-part episode during Goosebumps 2nd season in 1996-97. The episode has now been combined and is featured here on this DVD. Even though this episode came late in the 2nd season, it's based upon the first Goosebumps book ever. After the recent unemployment of their father, the Benson family moves to the town of Dark Falls, a place where the sun rarely shines. Before anyone even enters their new house, daughter Amanda sees some strange things in the house and gets a creepy vibe. Strange events start to happen. At times it seems like there's something or someone trying to get in the house, but then it seems there's something trying to warn Amanda to get her family away.

WELCOME TO DEAD HOUSE does a pretty good job of following the book on which it is based, with one major exception. There are some images that younger viewers might find frightening, but other than that the DVD is pretty safe and is something that family's might enjoy watching together for a few chills and thrills.

"Welcome to Dead House" is most likely my favorite Goosebumps episode in the series, along with "Night of the Living Dummy III" and "The Haunted Mask". Amanda and Josh aren't liking there move to Dark Falls. But it's not just the move that is bugging Amanda, because she keeps seeing and hearing strange things at night; the kids down the street aren't acting like normal kids; the people in Dark Falls are very pale. One day while looking for her lost dog, Petey, Amanda hears voices in the cemetery. Voices that sound very hungry. "Welcome to Dead House" is a excellent addition to my Goosebumps collection!

I've always loved the Goosebump movies, They're not so gory or bloody like the slasher movies. I like to have the grandkids over during the Halloween season and watch a goosebump episode. "Welcome to Dead House" is probably my favorite along with the "Haunted Mask". R.L. Stine does a very good job in his writings in that I'm interested in his movies from the time it starts and all the way to the end.
