Movie Info

Rich oddball Frederick Loren (Vincent Price) has a proposal for five guests at a possibly haunted mansion: Show up, survive a night filled with scares and receive $10,000 each. The guest of honor is Loren's estranged wife, Annabelle (Carol Ohmart), who, with her secret lover, Dr. Trent (Alan Marshal), has concocted her own scheme to scare Loren's associate, Nora Manning (Carolyn Craig), into shooting the potentially crazy millionaire. But more spooks and shocks throw a wrench into the plan.

    A masterclass in old school b horror. Never scary, but always fun, this old dark house tale led by the master Vincent Price is a Goldman classic. Is it good? I mean, debatable. The story is actually fairly solid, the way it's told is dated as hell. But that's part of the fun. What really makes it work is Vincent Price who takes every part of it completely seriously. A film of a type, but of that type one of the best of its kind.

    I was pleasantly reminded of the glory that is Vincent Price. Vincent Price is yet again type casted in a haunting tale. price's acting alone will have you on the edge of your seat and the jump scares are excellently surprising.

    So silly and campy that it is likely to provoke more unintentional laughter than chills, given its complete disdain for realism, coherence and plausibility - like nobody able to hear a woman screaming that loud in the house or the ludicrous details involving the twist in the end.

    A wealthy man offers $10,000 to whomever can spend one whole night in this supposedly haunted house. Why is it thought to be haunted? Seven people have previously died there, died mysteriously. And so a group shows up in a go for the gold, but William Castle, the famous schlock horror director, has more in his mind than simply that. There's plenty of drive-in creepy mood. Vincent Price is certainly ominous, and that's expected, no, but I think it's Elisha Cook Jr.'s raving paranoid naysayer that puts this mere whodunit into horror territory and on edge. See it for that. Then consider for yourself how much the value of any property is increased when there's an acid bath included in the basement.
