Critic Reviews for House of the Long Shadows
Too bad the update doesn't come off as good as it should have been, though it comes through as a campy romp and has a few wonderful moments.
Desi Arnaz Jr. is deadly in the largest role -- and the two twist endings (present in the source material) are strictly take-it-or-leave-it -- but the presence of Vincent Price, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee allow all the shenanigans to go down easy.
Audience Reviews for House of the Long Shadows
A film featuring the dream casting of Vincent Price, Peter Cushing, and Christopher Lee, House of the Long Shadows is an entertaining throw back to the classic films for which all three actors are known. Some issues with the story and the acting of Desi Arenas Jr hold it back from becoming a true classic.
With unique and historically important casting, "House of the Long Shadows" wasn't a film trying to be hip and failing dismally, it was a film knowingly 'out of time' and thus became an exception to the common rule of 80's Horror, and should be viewed as such.
Vincent Price was one of the only reason why I enjoyed this film. I don't think it was a horrible movie, it had some good parts. Desi Arnaz Jr. (The son of the late Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.) is in this film. Peter Cushing also stars in this film. Many people will remember him as Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
