One Favorite Classic, One Bunch of Favorite Nitwits 24 July 2009
By Petite Fleur - Published on Amazon.com
As a fan of old black and white "B" horror movies, I've always loved "House on Haunted Hill." It's pretty lame by today's blood & gore standards, but I saw it as a kid and found it scarey. I have quite a few DVD's of this movie, bought for a mere $1 during Halloween. That said, I'm also a fan of the good-ole MST3K nitwits, and this was my first Rifftrax rental. Don't expect the MST3K stuff like skits, shadows of the guys watching the movie, or even an introduction! The movie starts and the guys immediately riff in the background. You simply just HEAR, but never see them! When the movie ends, they sign off. I thought the riffing was good, especially for the two lame-brained leads who (of course) always place themselves in danger. "Lance", the clumsy hero, is always just one step away from the next concussion. "Nora", the terrorized woman, runs away from the horror by going into empty dark rooms. They barely touch Vincent Price, but he's such a good actor and one of my favorites, so that's okay with me. I'm happy to hear the guys, even if I can't see them. That's probably why the Rifftrax DVD's are more affordable.

A workable, if spartan, package 1 July 2009
By David Starner - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a nice high-quality DVD of House on Haunted Hill. It was touch spartan; there's no subtitles of either the movie or the riffing, there's no MST3K-style video introduction (which would have been nice; would it have been hard to put a five minute pre-movie warmup, using whatever set came to hand), there's no shadows on the screen (which I've seen done with just subtitles, on the Ghostbusters DVD, IIRC), and there's not even a coming/available advertisement. There's just the movie, and two soundtracks, one with and one without riffing.

As for the meat of the material, House on Haunted Hill is a fairly classic old movie and moderately riffable. I'd place the riffs here about average for an MST3K and there was enough classic horror movie shtics and movie-specific jokes to make it worth my while.

But it is a good classic horror movie, and well worth your time watching it unMST3Ked before ruining all the surprises in the comedic mode. If you've got the DVD and haven't seen the movie, take the time to watch the original first.

One of RiffTrax's Funniest 9 Mar. 2012
By Wes Saylors Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Firstly, The House on Haunted Hill is actually a pretty good movie and generally delivers some solid thrills. To have Mike Nelson and Co. providing laughs is almost an embarrassment of riches. You get a terrific little Vincent Price movie about a handful of invited guests who must survive a night in a huge haunted house to collect some serious money AND you get some of the funniest riffing that the crew at RiffTrax can provide. It's like watching the Saturday Night Creature Feature with three of your best invisible friends. For a night's entertainment, you can't do better than the price of this disc.

Vincent Price is Right 7 Nov. 2009
By Jorge A. Zarco - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My siblings and I grew up watching Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes on VHS tapes and on cable/satellite TV. We were disillusioned and upset when the Sci-Fi/Syfy Channel canceled it in 1999. Thank goodness for these Rifftrax DVD's. It feels like we're reunited with old friends. One can watch House on Haunted Hill(1959) with or without the audio commentary. Other than that, there are no other extra features. MST3K's Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett poke fun of the decent, albeit gimmicky horror film House on Haunted Hill(1959) starring Vincent Price. Price plays an eccentric rich guy who offers people a million dollars to spend the night in a haunted house. This film was remade in 1999, I think.

Screaming woman: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Kevin Murphy: Someone found John Goodman on the toilet!

(A woman shoots Vincent Price with a gun)
Bill Corbett: That was for Thriller! Do you know how many people in this country were traumatized by it?

(Commenting on actress Carol Ohmart)
Mike Nelson: She's nude and she looks like Hayden Panettiere!

I hope Legend Films keeps pumping out low priced Rifftrax DVD's. Mystery Science Theater 3000 lives on...more or less.

"House on Haunted Hill" had it coming! 28 Oct. 2013
By Terrance Aldon Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The original 1958 version of "House on Haunted Hill" may not exactly cry out for the RiffTrax treatment, but, I have to say, after watching Nelson, Murphy and Corbett do their thing, it probably had it coming. The William Castle-directed Vincent Price vehicle has lost a good deal of its original shock-value over the decades--let's face it, we're just not as easily scared as we used to be--but it does have its potentially funny moments, mainly because it tends to take itself just a wee bit too seriously. None of the actors are outstamdingly bad; they're just stuck with a stilted and rather cheesy script, and are doing what they can to make the best of a thankless gig. Vincent Price is watchable in whatever he's in, and while I wouldn't go so far as to say that he brings "dignity" to his role, he nonetheless plays it with such oily charm and schmaltzy menace that we can almost imagine him winking at us, letting us know he really does get how silly this stuff is. (Heck! Given Price's legendary sense of humor, you can almost imagine his ghost joining in on the riffing.) Elisha Cook, Richard Long, and Carol Ohmart aren't too terrible either, but, like the characters they portray, are simply trapped for the duration.

"House on Haunted Hill" has been a perennial Halloween favorite of mine, so I was delighted to find out about this RiffTrax send-up. I've been a huge MST3K fan since its early Comedy Central days; so much of a fan, in fact, that I've actually caught myself riffing on Shakespeare. (Help! Is there a twelve-step program for this???) This 2009 riff was done in a studio, and isn't quite as sharp or manically off-the-wall as the 2010 live version, filmed before a theater full of roaring fans. It seems as if the guys had time to tweak the jokes a bit in the interim between the two versions. The stuido session certainly has its moments, but no real belly laughs or coffee-up-the-nose situations.

I ended up getting both DVDs. This, the original 2009 studio production, has no special features or extras, but it does have a complete, un-cut and un-riffed black-and-white copy of "House on Haunted Hill", which looks like a fairly decent print. The live 2010 production features a colorized version of the film. That disc has a few bare-bones extras, additional material including two typically weird short films, and the added spontaneity of a live performance; it does not, however, include a separate, un-riffed version of the movie. If I was forced to choose only one DVD, I'd probably go with the live version. But if you want a decent print of the original movie, and can afford both discs, by all means, go for it.
