Critic Reviews for Haunted Castle
[Murnau] creates great dramatic tension and an ominous mood in the stillness of his compositions and the lugubrious movement of his actors.
Maybe if they had concentrated on the temporal pleasures Johnny would gain from the bargain rather than the eternal torment part, he might have been more likely to sign.
If I were the boss of IMAX, I'd be more concerned with the film's overall failure degrading the brand than anything else.
Thrilling special effect gimmicks lose their luster, and Haunted Castle makes no real effort at suspenseful or artful storytelling.
"Haunted Castle" is a virtual "Haunted House." Something you might pay three to ten bucks to check out in the neighborhood, but with less creepy ghouls.
Audience Reviews for Haunted Castle
The movie is supposed to be shown in 3-D. But, they mad it so you can watch it in 2-D too. Bu, I recommend the 3-D version of the movie. Besides that, it's a great little film, I love the music in it the whole time.
I had seen it years ago and barely remembered it. The story is corny as hell, albeit not entirely unbelievable for the genre, the music ranged between mediocre and decent, and the acting, dialogue, as well as the character development, are so stupid that they are actually laughable! I was almost surprised that they didn't have that washed up wench Cher play the mother role... The graphics are good by todays standards but that is the best thing about this cartoon; any film where the graphics/special effects are better than everything else, including and especially the actors, is never a good sign!! I'm sure that this was spectacular in an IMAX theater but, that doesn't really help the film here. Whether this was intentional or not, there is also a "thrill ride" feel to the film, especially what with the roller coaster gimmick towards the end. This is a film that is good for its visuals, best to be seen, and appreciated, in a theater setting. At home it is stupid and barely worth it...
Do not see this movie. Great animation in the I-Max with a poor story line. You would be better seeing a good I-max documentary.
