VERDICT – 3/5

 

 

PROS –
1) A haunted house with a horrifying fire accident in 1931, invites descendants of the 5 survivors of the sadistic Dr. Vannacutt’s evil staff. The host assumes the guest as part adventure night offering $1 million to each guest who remains in the house until morning.
2) The amusement park prank at the beginning of the movie keeps audiences thinking the entire movie to be an elaborate prank.
3) Ignoring the fact that it’s a remake of House On Haunted Hill (1959), the movie is thoroughly entertaining from beginning to end.
