Eight years have elapsed since Eddie and Sara escaped from The House on Haunted Hill. Sara, as you would expect, has had a few issues dealing with what she saw on The Hill. However, I wouldn't worry too much about her. She is murdered within the first few minutes of the film. Enter her sister, Ariel, who wants to know why her sister died. Of course, discovering why Sara was murdered has to involve a trip back to Dr. Vannacutt's asylum. And then, the supernatural slaughter begins...
It has to be said that the film, Return to House on Haunted Hill, is not anywhere near the calibre of the 1999 version. However, I don't think you can fairly compare a horror movie that sported an Oscar winner to a straight-to-DVD shocker.
Obviously, the producers of this movie decided early on that they were not going to waste their budget on "big-name" stars. There are only a few recognizable faces. And the only person that reprises his role from the earlier film is Jeffrey (re-animator) Combs.
The movie itself is definitely worth a watch. It does not have any pretensions, and I doubt whether it will be on anyone's top-ten horror movie lists. But it has enough thrills and chills to keep viewers interested. The sense of eerie menace that radiated from the House on Haunted Hill in the first instalment is still there. The visual effects seem unbounded and without flaw. And, of course, the exceptional Combs is as spooky as ever. Also, there are more than a few glimpses of naked women (who, to me, seem to be only one carrot-stick away from anorexics), which is a bit annoying. But I am sure the boys, and maybe even some of the girls, in the audience will love that.
In short, Return to House on Haunted Hill is a cheap and tacky gore fest.

This 2nd installment has gruesome death scenes, girl on girl threesome, female nudity. What it lacks are the creepiness, the tension, the suspense, the special effect, the talent, & the budget of the previous movie. This is a straight to video flick & it is 81 mins too long. As a big fan of the House On Haunted Hill, this is a big let down. One word of advice: "Stay Away, Do Not Return To Haunted Hill"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(this comment refers to the unrated version of the film)i thought it
was still an entertaining movie.there are a few pretty creative kills
which are pretty gory.but overall i thought the gore factor was a lot
less in this one.so if you're a hard core gore hound,this movie might
not satisfy you.i didn't really care for the acting that much,but i've
seen worse.i also felt that most of the characters were stereotypical
for the genre.and for me,the storyline wasn't very good.it felt too
contrived to me.however,i did like the explanation they gave for the
root of the evil.i thought it was inventive.there is some nudity in
this movie,most of which i felt was not necessary and had nothing to do
with the story.it could have been used as filler,to pad the film's
short running time.this film also lacked the high tension of the first
one.in fact,i didn't really think the film had much atmosphere.the
ending to the movie was pretty typical,in my mind.but still,like i
said,i felt it was entertaining and had a bit of creativity.this is
just my opinion of course,but my vote for Return to House on Haunted
Hill is a 7/10
