Two Vincent Price Chillers For The Price Of One! 25 May 2004
By David Von Pein - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD produced by "The Roan Group" features two of my favorite Vincent Price horror/suspense films: "The Bat" and "House On Haunted Hill", both of which were released in movie theaters the same year (1959).

"The Bat" is a creaky old-dark-house kind of tale, and stars Price along with the great Agnes Moorehead. Although not exactly nail-bitingly intense, it still emits a great deal of entertainment (including several unintentionally funny moments -- or at least I *think* they're unintentional). But, no matter. This movie is still very fun all the way around. And Miss Moorehead is always a treat on screen.

"House On Haunted Hill" is a William Castle-directed feature, which automatically means a fun outing at the movies! Castle's "gimmick" in movie theaters for this film was called "Emergo", which entailed a "flying skeleton" jumping out at the audience at just the proper moment in the film. Must have been pretty cool for kids back in '59!

Each film on this disc is shown in Widescreen format, with the original Mono soundtrack. And the picture quality looks A-OK. Very pleasing indeed (especially considering the fact neither film has been enhanced for 16x9 televisions). Aspect Ratio for each of these black-and-white films on this DVD is 1.66:1. The audio for each movie is 1.0 Dolby Digital (Mono).

The DVD is double-sided (therefore no disc art), with one movie residing on each side. There are no extra bonus features at all. But each movie does include several chapter breaks. There's a Chapter List included on a paper insert inside the DVD's Keep Case.

These two late-'50s flicks are essential viewing for any serious (or even casual) Vincent Price buff.

Creepy, nostalgic fun,fun, fun! 15 Dec. 2000
By Ilona Novotny - Published on
Format: DVD
Two fun "Creepy old house" flicks, from that old paragon of cheaply produced films, Allied Artists, (formerly Monogram),have been released on one DVD. "House on Haunted Hill", the better-known of the two, is a now-legendary William Castle opus, full of cheap shocks, including the infamous vat of acid in a wine cellar, an unsuccessful murder plot (with a twist), campy performances, little credibility, and is a real "party" film. "The Bat", while a little on the slow side, does have Vincent Price and the wonderful Agnes Moorehead. The woman did EVERYTHING well! The story line creaks, and is a little slow-going, but I always enjoyed it-mainly due to Agnes' performance. This was another childhood favorite of mine, along with "Haunted Hill", which used to run on "Million Dollar Movie" about 100 times in one week! The picture quality is excellent on both films (you can REALLY see how cheap the sets are), and if you're 40-something like myself, it will bring back memories of a mug of hot cocoa, "Melody" cookies, and an old black-and-white TV set with rabbit ears. My favorite part in "Haunted Hill"-Carolyn Craig runs shrieking through the house (her screams could wake the dead)-Alan Marshal knocks on Vincent Price's door, and asks, "Did you hear anything?" to which Vincent replies, "Organ music?"

Classic fun! 4 Dec. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
Roan Archival Entertainment has presented a series of consistently high-quality double featured DVDs. This one in particular is just one of those. THE BAT and HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL are presented on opposite sides of the disc. Contrary to the description on this site, neither are (or ever were) in color. The sound qulaity for both pictures are exceptional. The widescreen framing is well rendered. The film elements for both are good, except for quite a bit of flecks on HOUSE and some film jumps on BAT. These flaws are not distracting, however. THE BAT has an exceptionally clear picture quality, with pleasant contrasts.
As for the quality of the films, they both are enjoyable for what they have to offer. THE BAT is a remake of the classic 1930 film THE BAT WHISPERS. This version stars Vincent Price and Agnes Moorehead (who 6 years later would get an Oscar nomination for HUSH..HUSH SWEET CHARLOTTE). The film also has the final film performance of Darla Hood ("Darla" of the OUR GANG comedies of the 1930s). Contrary to the cover art, this is not a horror film. its actually more likened to an episode of "Murder, She Wrote" with Moorhead p[laying a mystery writer involved in a little murder mystery of her own. Vincent Price is pretty much wasted in this film. His role ends up being a thankless one, as one will observe. This film is nothing like the spook fest on the other side HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL. This minor film has developed quite a following. Its not difficult to see why with its cooky special effects and equally cooky script. This is full of surprises and unintentional dated laughs as the visitors to the house become pawns to Vincent Price's wicked games. William Castle directs in his usually manipulative style. This film will not be forgotton!
Please note: These films are available for purchase separately through Warner and Anchor Bay. If you are willing to give up extras, this edition will suit you just fine.

Good Double Feature Films. 1 May 2000
By LUCIEN LESSARD - Published on
Format: DVD
I never saw Vincent Price Film, Expect for His Supporting Role in Dead Heat(1988). I did like House On Haunted Hill, I enjoy More Than The Bat. Good Film with Some Scares, The Film is a Bit Chessy at Times but Well directed By William Castle, He Produced 1968 Shocker-Rosemary`s Baby.
The Bat was Remade Three Times Before Vincent Price, Star or We can say in a Supporting Role. This Version was Made in 1959. The Lead was Agnes Moorehead(The Hit T.V. series-bewitched) as Novelist write about Suspenseful Horror Book. The Bat is More Suspense Film Than A Horror Film, Also a Mystery One, Who Is The Bat?. The House On Haunted Hill is More Of An Film With Surprises.
Technical Information is a Mistake Is Not Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono is Actually Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono.
The House On Haunted Hill Real Widescreen Aspect Ratio is 1.85:1 not 1.66:1. Maybe for The Bat but Not The House On Haunted Hill.
Roan Group did a Good Job with the Double Feature Films. The Only Thing is Missing the Usual Traliers on Every DVD Films. For The Bat and House On Haunted Hill. No Production Notes Also. Actually The Picture is More Clearer With The Bat Than The House On Haunted Hill.
Warner DVD Video Relase-The House On Haunted Hill in Pan&Scan And Original Widescreen Format 1.85:1, Original Theatrical Tralier and Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono. The Picture is Much Clearer and We Actually See The String On The Skeleton, When Vincent Character is Scarying His Double Crossing Wife To Death.
Still For Vincent Price Fans, Will Enjoy Double Feature of These Classics Films.

ONE OF ROAN'S BEST!!!!! 20 Feb. 2011
By larryj1 - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This double feature from Roan is great. You get both features in widescreen with great quality. House on Haunted Hill only looks better in the Warner release. The Bat also has an Anchor Bay edition with a trailer, but it is in full screen only.
