House on Haunted Hill is a 1959 American supernatural horror film directed by William Castle. The film was written by Robb White and stars Vincent Price and Carol Ohmart.
Vincent Price plays an eccentric millionaire, Frederick Loren, who, has invited five people to a house for a “haunted house” party. Whoever stays in the house for one night will earn $10,000.
As the night progresses, the guests are trapped within the house with all sorts of terrors. The film uses many props to generate fear and terror. Including a black scream introduction.
Exterior shots of the house were filmed at the historic Ennis House in Los Feliz California, designed in 1924 by Frank Lloyd Wright. And it still stands today.
The poster for the film included an illustration of a house in yet a third style, that of a fanciful four-story Romanesque structure. Click here to get the poster. The film is best known for a promotional gimmick used in the film’s original theatrical release called “Emergo.” In some theaters that showed the film, exhibitors rigged an elaborate pulley system near the theater screen which allowed a plastic skeleton to be flown over the audience during a corresponding scene late in the film. Thanks in part to Castle’s gimmickry, the film was a huge success. Alfred Hitchcock took notice of the low-budget film’s performance at the box office and made his own low-budget horror film, which became the critically acclaimed hit Psycho (1960).
