| Classic Vincent Price Frightfest...
I personally think that 1958's "House on Haunted Hill" is one of Vincent Price's best scary movies that he made over his long and storied career. Directed by the incomparable shock master, William Castle, it has all the elements for a good scary movie.

Vincent Price portrays Frederick Loren, a wealthy businessman who has rented out a haunted house that has been the scene of several murders for an all night party for several people. He offers $10,000.00 to anyone who stays in the house overnight.

Without giving too much away, there are several chilling moments in the film. Ghosts, an old woman who looks like a wicked witch, a walking skeleton, an acid pit in the dark and creepy basement and a suicide by Loren's beautiful wife Annabelle (played with frosty efficiency by Carol Ohmart) or is her death really a murder? There are several good supporting actors such as Richard Long and Carolyn Craig who help keep the movie entertaining.

The 1999 remake of this classic film simply cannot hold a candle to the original. This is a great movie to watch while snuggled under the covers on a stormy night.
