House On Haunted Hill (Black & White 1959)

house-on-haunted-hill-posterHOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959) A classic, director William Castle’s House On Haunted Hill, featuring the great Vincent Price and a workhorse plot that has durably stood the test of time. A cast of characters are chosen to spend the night in a death house for $10,000, hosted by Price, at his pinnacle of pithiness. Carol Ohmart – his slut wife Annabelle – is note perfect, and their screen time together is rich indeed. The spooky music is composed and conducted by Von Dexter, who scored four films for director Castle, including The Tingler and 13 Ghosts. DIALOG ALERT: “Remember the fun we had when you poisoned me? Yes… arsenic on the rocks.” Find House On Haunted Hill at Amazon, HERE. New Movies, Fridays ‘Round Midnight.
