Not much is convincing about the slackly told Old Dark House story.
Cheesy and hilarious from begining to end. The most infamous begining from movie history, but also a surprising end.
The movie begins with the narrator warning the audience that the movie is so scary that they may actually die. It is cheesy and laughable as hell, which sets the tone for the rest of this super low-budget chiller. The movie has it's share of atmospheric shots, but if anybody is going to die from anything, it's laughter. This movie is a very good so-bad-it's-good experience. The film is full of laughable dialogue delivered with the utmost seriousness and the attempts at scares are hilarious. Scenes were the leading lady is screaming at a skull rolling down the stairs is something one would expect out of a parody, not a serious horror flick. The film is also filled with sloppy and choppy jump cuts that would give anybody whiplash. Sometimes the film shade changes at random points during the film. One minute it is normal black-in-white, and the next it is super white. The movie is only an hour long, so I recommend this if you are looking for some chilling atmosphere and great laughs.
I thought this movie was okay at first, but then they kept playing it on TV and I got sick of it. If you haven't seen it yet, I can tell you it's pretty predictable but it does have some scary scenes.
im sure that back then this movie was really scarry... there were some parts where "AHHH' but then i had to go 'AHH HAHAHHAHA! " some of its a bit cheesey but.......mickey is like the first ever EMO! Ahaha
