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.Read more ›
This film could have been more, but like i said it tries too hard with the noise and camera twitching, some generally average CGI and almost annoying "talkin' s***" that it bogs it down a bit. The bonuses are pathetic - instead of doing some interesting making of or interviews, they try to do this silly reality TV "confessions" which is nothing more than more of that annoying banter.
Still i found that it still delivered even with these, no where near as cool as the first but still holds up enough for some decent kills and Jeffery Combs and Creepy Asylum goodness.
