Return to House on Haunted Hill brings a new crop of victims to the old Vannacutt Psychiatric Institute for the Criminally Insane. In this 2007 sequel to the 1999 horror film House on Haunted Hill, Ariel Wolfe (Amanda Righetti) comes looking for answers to why her sister Sara (Ali Larter) killed herself after being the lone survivor of a previous excursion to the haunted asylum. She's joined by art dealer Desmond Niles (Erik Palladino) who is hoping to find a supernatural idol hidden inside, and his associates Norris (Gil Kolirin), Warren (Chucky Venice) and Harue (Kalita Rainford). Dr. Richard Hammer (Steven Pacey) is also inside the building, having been lured there by his assistants Kyle (Andrew-Lee Potts) and Michelle (Cerina Vincent). Once inside, the house closes its exits and windows, trapping them all for the next 12 hours. They split up to search for the idol and the house's evil spirits begin to pick them off one by one.
