House On Haunted Hill Movie Review

House On Haunted Hill Movie Review

House on Haunted Hill, the original horror movie which was released in 1959. Let’s talk about the ghosts in this movie. First of all, there is that old ghost lady who was actually pretty scary.

Her first appearance was great, scary and mysterious but I really didn’t like how she got reduced to a jumpscare in her second appearance. Her first appearance was much more effective and creepy.

There’s also the Anabelle Ghost which was REALLY terrifying. That was just so creepy! That ghost being so terrifying is what made this moment my favorite moment in this entire movie.

How can people say that this is NOT scary? Because, it is! It is really, really scary! Anyways, the Skeleton Ghost at the end was pretty nice, actually! I really loved how it rose up from the acid pool. Whoever directed this really knows how to do visual horror since some of the visuals in this movie are pretty terrifying.

The Characters- Okay so let’s talk about the characters and surprisingly, most of them are really bad characters. Anyone can summarize their character with just a few words because of how one dimensional they are and that’s not a good thing! And also, the screams in this movie are so annoying.

Like yeah, I get it, you are scared of seeing a ghost and all but stop screaming so loudly. Like in the final scene, Anabelle just doesn’t stop her screaming! That’s so annoying! Rating- 7.5/10
