365 Film Challenge - House On Haunted Hill
- it’s interesting to note that Vincent Price is the star power here, and although he is integral to the story he’s mostly the puppeteer and not really the main focus throughout - it’s mostly centered around everyone else in the house and he keeps the horror going. obviously, the effects and scare points are pretty dated to a horror-savvy audience but the practical effects are still really good and gruesome. i think the overall creepy tone and careful reveal of plot points are what make this really suspenseful and effectively tense. and also, Vincent Price is just kind of a kooky and scary dude.
