House On Haunted Hill (1999)

Didn't age perfectly, but damn it did age well!

I'll maybe leave a proper review next time I see this, but if you like theme parks, and asylums, and a good horror movie that's not just a slasher but does keep the pace: you might like this. Never mind the occasional; somewhat outdated effects. Though they really were elaborate...

I love the cast too - Famke Janssen in her prime and Geoffrey Rush as an impeccable Price. The dress scene was nice. I love the Sweet Dreams drive. I love the intro. I love the play on relations and what keeps them alive. I love the outro too - disturbing as it may be. They capture the madness; the atmosphere; take their time to build things up in the beginning and go full circle when it's over.

Would've been a high five if the ending managed to consistently keep the scare, but when it's there it's really there.

 rated 4.5/5: almost awesome
