31 Days of Horror 2: House on Haunted Hill (1959)

October 29, 2009: House on Haunted Hill (1959)
Vincent Price does it again in this amazing haunted house movie - House on Haunted Hill.
Vincent Price has one of his best roles as millionaire Frederick Loren, who invites five guests out to a genuine haunted house, offering them each $10,000 if they spend the night. Mr. Loren's wife (Carol Ohmart) comes along and wants to kill Frederick during the course of the evening. Severed heads, a skeleton, an acid vat, ghostly screams and a noose that creeps around on its own and strangles unsuspecting victims are just some of the treats in a film that has been spooking delighted audiences on late-night TV for decades.
By far one of the best haunted house movies ever made. Yeah, it might be a little corny and silly, but it's still great.
