  1. Trash, but always just a little creepier than you expect.
  2. The kind of horror movie that's not a bit scary and quite a bit gross.
  3. 41
    Aims low and cheats on an ending, but meanwhile it's a bottom-shelf hoot.
  4. Fun for less than 30 of the 80-minute running time.
  5. 25
    Slow-moving, yawn-inducing remake.

    Everyone in the film is either annoying or unpleasant.

    Lucky for you, it won't cost a thing to get up and walk out at any point after the credits.

    A fairly good Popcorn horror flick. It's no masterpiece and nowhere near as good as the original. On its own, it is highly entertaining with some masterful & memorable performances by Geoffrey Rush & Famke Janssen. A shame about the the ending as the CG effects are unconvincing and kind of ruin the flow of the narrative up to that point. Practical effects would have been far better in this instance as it worked really well for the rest of the film. Overall: A great movie to watch with a bowl of popcorn at home on a dark and stormy night. Collapse

    The horrors of Haunted Hill might have worked for children, but sadly the true horror here is how ridiculous, rickety and perplexing the twist is, and despite the successful, seductive performance by Janssen, this gothic B-movie is a nauseating waste of time. Expand

    One of the dumbest movies ever, even the effects add nothing to the movie.

    This movie is the perfect example of why remakes should never be made.
