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.Read more ›
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

It's direct to video, so what do you expect? I'm a big fan of the original, it's one of my favourite horror movies. The script was bad and the acting worse. Read morePublished on March 3 2013 by koolz03
Commandos looking for a magic statue in a haunted house... Like another reviewer said, it lacks tension. There's zero scares, it's all about the action.Published on May 10 2008 by Summer_Nights
