Fails to deliver even one good 'boo!' moment.

Loud, sloppy, stupid, and inept, the film wastes Rush and Peter Gallagher, along with several lesser talents: Famke Janssen, Taye Diggs, Chris Kattan.

If Geoffrey Rush has any sense, he's sitting in his kitchen right now with a stack of his press materials and a bottle of correction fluid

House On Haunted Hill is not only never scary, it's never even interesting.

...too many special effects; not enough suspense or frights.

House on Haunted Hill is the kind of horror movie that's not a bit scary and quite a bit gross.

Paints its characters in strokes so broad just one would cover a barn, and, in the end, indulges in lame, dull digital effects that would put a 5-year-old to sleep.

The climactic house-versus-humans scenes were so ludicrous that I half expected Kattan to revert to his Mr. Peepers persona from SNL and start battling the evil inkblot with spat-out chunks of apple.

Had more attention been paid to the characters, plot and less on the concluding special effects, however, it would have been a far better film.

...An excellent show of digi-graphics. But it is seldom scary.

Watching House on Haunted Hill is like going to a restaurant where the food looks delectable, but tastes awful.

This is almost a green light. If you considered yourself a connoisseur of horror films, you'll be disappointed. If you are easily scared then you will love it.

Geoffrey Rush shamelessly overacts with a vengeance in this chillingly awful movie, which leaves us with one nagging question. Can Oscars be recalled?
