Unspeakable things happened at the Vannacutt Psychiatric Institute for the Criminally Insane-experiments that brought human torture to new depths of depravity ... secrets that died with their victims and the practitioners of the demonic acts that masqueraded as medicine. Now there are no living witnesses. Nothing survived Dr. Vannacutt's excesses; nothing endures except the building in which they occurred.
But that building holds all the secrets of its terrible past.
Decades after the Vannacutt Insititute...
Full synopsis »
The original House on Haunted Hill
, starring Vincent Price, sucked. It wasn't scary, it had bad acting, and there were no ghosts. Luckily, The House on Haunted Hill
of 1999 doesn't retain much of the original. The basic plot is there - a rich guy offers several persons a large sum of money to stay in a "haunted" house," all the while plotting to kill his wife, and she the same towards him - but this one actually has ghosts! Full movie review »
