House on Haunted Hill
Directed by William Castle
William Castle's gimmick-laden horror thriller is a fairground fun house come to life. Vincent Price stars as a suave eccentric millionaire married to a beautiful and greedy gold digger. Together they are hosting a party in a sinister haunted house. Five guests are invited to spend the night and each will get $10,000--but only if they survive until morning. The doors are locked at midnight. Will you make it out alive? Contains violence and gore.

Take a little horror, a little film noir, a little mystery and stir them all together. That's what "House on Haunted Hill" is. Director William Castle leaves enough out in the beginning to keep us guessing but without frustration. Terrific acting--especially Carol Ohmart who plays the wife of Vincent Price's character. Eerie setting and atmosphere and a few genuinely scary moments even for the jaded horror fan.
Love it. Please have more vintage creepy black and white classics!
Jwallerfilm 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 brilliant my thought exactly
As much a mystery as a horror flick, this has a great twist. Vincent Price is fabulous as always. Would love to see more Vincent Price movies. This classic was a real treat!
I definitely need to see more of Vincent Price’s works. A great classic.
