    Sequel to the remake that wasn't that great anyway. When the one survivor from the first movie dies randomly her sister decides she has to return to the haunted mansion and find out whats going on. Thats before she's actually forced into it by a rival who's after some baphomet statue thing thats worth 5 million pounds but theres a writer/archiologist involved who also wants it put in a museum. Problem is, the ghosts at the mansion have something to say about that. Its all very predictable meaning the scares aren't scary and the attempts at humour don't work. So, a couple of cool deaths and a couple of hot women aside, this is pretty shit really.

    Utter gorefest, no clear plot what so ever, brainless.

    Just as good as the first.

    The sister of the survivor from the first film must go to the house on haunted hill... (technically, the only people returning are the viewers, since all the characters are new). She has a connection to the house (much like her sister did) and the inmates there. Also, a professor and a bounty hunter are in search of an ancient relic. I will say that the plot was good. There was an actual reason to go in the house, and I found it plausible -- well worth waiting nearly a decade for a sequel. The working in of the Knights Templar and the Baphomet statue was very nice, and will appeal to those who like the occult. I imagine a lot of horror fans also enjoy the works of Eliphas Levi and Aleister Crowley and will feel at home with the references -- it was certainly nothing new to me. (Although, historically, the Knights did not really worship Baphomet as the myth goes.) Jeffrey Combs returns, and has a sizable role here. Not a large role, no real dialogue, but more than the five minutes he's had in other films the past few years. So his fans will appreciate that. And if you're a horror fan, you're probably a Combs fan. This film's strength is in the plot, and somewhat so in the acting. The characters are nothing special (they all have very one-dimensional motives) but they are acted well. Many will also enjoy the high blood content -- a man gets quartered, for example. And that's not the worst of it. There's even a death by refrigerator! Not quite creative on the level of, say "2001 Maniacs", but not bad. All you really need to know is if you liked the first film, you'll love this. Many reviewers have commented this is the better of the two, and I'm inclined to agree (although I'll still watch the original Vincent Price version over either of them). Solid story, good acting, blood... this is a horror film that goes above and beyond the typical straight-to-video schlock. Worth a look
