Audio 2: Commentary with Film Historian Steve Haberman

Eccentric millionaire Fredrick Loren and his 4th wife, Annabelle, have invited 5 people to the house on Haunted Hill for a “haunted House” party. Whoever will stay in the house for one night will earn ten thousand dollars each. As the night progresses, all the guests are trapped inside the house with ghosts, murderers, and other terrors.

Forget the awful, senseless remake, the original ‘The House On Haunted Hill’ is one of the most entertaining and enjoyable chillers of all time. William Castle’s over the top camp style is an acquired taste for many, but once you enter into the spirit of things you’re in for a wild, fun ride. The legendary Vincent Price is in his element here as the cynical millionaire trapped in a loveless sham of a marriage, and Carol Ohmart, who I have only ever seen in the cult classic ‘Spiderbaby’, is a knockout as his tough as nails “better half”. Their haunted house party guests, led by the much loved character actor Elisha Cook, Jr (‘The Maltese Falcon’ ,The Killing’,etc.etc.), are well cast and amusing, and the whole thing is a hoot! I recommend this movie to all horror fans. It is quite possibly the single most entertaining horror thriller of the 50s. Supremely silly but still scary at the same time. Great stuff!
