House On Haunted Hill features Oscar and Golden Globe-winner Geoffrey Rush ("Quills," "Shakespeare in Love") in a chilling remake of William Castle's cult classic. Five strangers are each offered a chance to earn one million dollars if they can survive a night in a house that was once an insane asylum run by a deranged and sadistic doctor. But what starts out as a harmless birthday prank soon turns into a night of horrific terror. Co-stars Bridgette Wilson ("The Wedding Planner," "Love Stinks"), Taye Diggs ("How Stella Got Her Groove Back," "Go"), Peter Gallagher ("Mr. Deeds," "American Beauty"), Ali Larter ("American Outlaws," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back"), Chris Kattan ("Undercover Brother," TV's "Saturday Night Live"). Famke Janssen ("X-Men," "GoldenEye") and singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb. Produced by Joel Silver ("The Matrix" trilogy, the "Lethal Weapon" franchise) and Robert Zemeckis ("Thir13en Ghosts," "What Lies Beneath").

Metacritic Score

  • 40

    Variety Joe Leydon

    Still nothing but a gussied-up B movie.

  • 20

    Los Angeles Times

    Soon enough, it becomes clear how much this movie disrespects both the audience and the genre.

  • 10

    The New York Times Lawrence Van Gelder

    All the special effects in the world cannot compensate for an inability to generate tension, establish and sustain pace or create any character whose survival is worth rooting for.
