A millionaire offers $10,000 to five people who agree to be locked in a large, spooky, rented house overnight with him and his wife.
Filmed September 3-16 1958, for December release (copyright 1958).
Wasn't there a man who threw his wife into a wine vat or something?
Watson Pritchard: That was in the cellar. There's been a murder almost everywhere in this house.
Frederick Loren announces at the start of the challenge that if any of the contestants dies, the deceased's heirs will get his/her $10,000. Later, he says that if any of the five contestants dies, the total $50,000 will be split evenly among the survivors. However, the initial statement is spoken directly to the film's audience, is not part of the actual plot line, and therefore, does not really contradict the terms subsequently described to the genuine characters.
