    House on Haunted Hill

    ★★★★

    You can't beat watching Vincent Price on Halloween. The thrills and chills of House on Haunted Hill are just icing on the cake.

    In this 1959 classic—the premise for which would lead Price to work on The Tingler with director William Castle—wealthy man Frederick Loren (Vincent Price) invites five guests to see if they can survive the night in his sprawling home.

    ★★★★★

    Let me start be saying I have not seen the original 1958 version with Vincent Price. I know, I know, I know!! How can you have only seen a remake? Well I will rectify that one day, but I think thats what make the 1986 version so special and so unique, in that it can really hold its own as a movie. With a plethora of remakes and reboots and reimaginings (Whatever they are) not making the grade, The Fly…
