The Ole Double Feature: “HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL” (1959 and 1999)

So…

…What Can I Tell You About This Double Feature?

Hmm.

Well…

…I Can Tell You The Best Part Of BOTH Flicks.

The Best Part About…

HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL

(The 1959 Version)

…Is…

VINCENT PRICE

…Being…

VINCENT PRICE

!!! !!! !!!

The Best Part About…

HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL

(The 1999 Version)

…Is…

GEOFFREY RUSH

…Doing His Best At Being…

VINCENT PRICE

!!! !!! !!!

Honestly, That’s It, My Peeps.

They’re Both Cheesy-Fun Flicks.

Neither Of Them Are What I Would Call A True-Blue-Classics…

…But They’re Cheesy-Fun, Nevertheless.

*** *** ***

The Plot To Both Films Is Basically The Same.

An Eccentric Millionaire Invites People To Spend The Night In A So-Called “Haunted Place” With The Promise Of A Payday For All Whom Can Stay The Entire Night AND Survive.

The Only Real Difference Is The Monetary Value.

In 1959, They Get $10,000.00

In 1999, They Get $1,000,000.00

Okay Okay, And There’s One More HUGE Difference…

…The SPECIAL EFFECTS.

In 1959…

…Well…

…Sheesh People, It Was 1959.

In 1999, However, They Go Balls-In To Make It As Graphic As Possible.

Needless To Say, It’s The Effects That Sell The 1999 Version.

For The 1959 Version, It’s The Suspense AND The Mood.

Well…

…And 1959 Had…

VINCENT PRICE

…While 1999 Had…

GEOFFREY RUSH

…Both Of Whom Have So Much Fun Playing Their Parts.

*** *** ***

Since I Didn’t Own Either Of Them At The Time…

…Though I’d Seen Them Both Many Times…

…I Decided To Drop My $5 On This Little Double Feature DVD.

Honestly…

…I Consider It $5 VERY WELL SPENT, My Peeps.

Cheesy-Fun Can Be Almost Priceless, Itself.

Wouldn’t You Agree???

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

So, Please, Trust Me When I Say…

HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL

…Both The 1959 AND 1999 Versions…

…Are At Least Worth A Look If Cheesy-Fun Horror Is Your Thing.

You Already KNOW It’s MY Thing!

πŸ˜‰

Keep Your Friday Rollin’, My Peeps.

Here’s To Hoping The Day Treats Y’all Well.

If It Doesn’t???

Well…

…Hmm…

…At Least Tomorrow Is SATURDAY!
