When it comes to the likes of 1950's, low-budget horror - (If you're seriously looking for a real gem that's overflowing with non-stop, unintentional humour) - You certainly can't go wrong with "House On Haunted Hill". Yep. It's a "scream", alright.... A "scream" of laughter, that is.

Filmed in b&w on a measly $200,000 budget - Directed by schlock movie-maker, William Castle - and - Starring that total Hollywood ham-actor, Vincent Price - Believe me - This demented, little fright flick takes the meaning of the word "cheesy" to a whole new level of unbridled lunacy.

As the story goes - Price (with a typical fiendish glee) plays Frederick Loren, a mean, sadistic and utterly eccentric millionaire, who offers $10,000 to five people who agree to be locked up in a large, spooky, rented house overnight with him and his "darling" wife.

... So - Let the screaming start!.... Ha!... I mean - Let the laughing start!... (*Watch video-clip*)

By far, one of the creepiest films ever. Don't waste your time on the remake, it doesn't do the story justice. Instead watch this late at night, with the lights off and a big bowl of popcorn.

Great film, the original is so much better than the remake. This is one of Vincent Prices' best films.
