Cult Films- The House on Haunted Hill

This movie is on the verge of being a cult film I's had I think 3 remakes....but I was really compelled to do a 'cult films' post on this movie since Vincent Price is in it. Price has a pretty devoted cult following (now including me!) for his performances in the horror films during the latter part of his career. He was a theatrical actor who brought an air of seriousness to macabre and horror films that was really unique and one of a kind. You kind of just have to watch a film with him in it....preferably Witchfinder General.

I thought this movie was good though in a 'it's so bad you can see the wires' kind of way. You'll have to keep in mind that I hate horror films since I get scared so easily...I tend to prefer older movies since it's not people being tortured the whole time. The movie is basically about ?6 or 7? who lock themselves in a haunted house for the night at the bidding of an eccentric millionaire (played by Price) to see who can stay there the whole night. I didn't expect the ending at all so that was good lol. It was also fairly short....overall I would give it about 4 1\2 stars. I quite liked it :) Here's the trailer for the movie:

Also- I searched Vincent Price on youtube and this was one of the things that came up :/ Apparently Price had his own cooking show at one point, someone took sound bites from it, and turned it into a little song, which someone then played over them mouthing the words to the song. I guess that shows you how much people are obsessed with this guy lol!

This also happens to be made by that paperlilies person I told you guys about before....I did not do this on purpose lol, I didn't know this existed!

P.S. Sorry if I don't comment on your blogs in response to you commenting here....I've been really busy recently and please don't think I don't appreciate your comments b\c I really do! I try to get back to everyone!
