House on Haunted Hill (1959)
Movie Review by Professor Corpse Rot
06.28.11

House on Haunted Hill (1959) This film was actually released before The Tingler, but I wanted to mention this one second. Despite Castle's use of a low budget, The House on Haunted Hill enjoyed a fair amount of popularity. It is rumored that Alfred Hitchcock took notice of this phenomenon and later inspired him to make 1960's Psycho. Price signed onto The House on Haunted Hill as part of a two-film collaboration between himself and Castle. The premise of this movie is as follows: Millionaire Frederick Loren and his 4th wife Annabelle, invite 5 people to stay in The House on Haunted Hill. A site that has served as a scene for several murders, they are offered $10,000 each to stay throughout the night. This was Castle's first attempt at creating theatre gimmicks. Although the idea was clever, patrons who frequented the theatre came to expect these devices and were no longer frightened by it. Similar to The Tingler, scenes from this film are fun and shouldn't be taken too seriously. As some of you are probably aware, this film was remade in 1999. In conclusion, this was a great atmosphere for Price to be a part of.
