HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL presented by Count Gore
Local TV legend Count Gore De Vol (Dick Dyszel) returns to present another terrifying film with interactive games, prizes and more! Eccentric millionaire Vincent Price hosts a "haunted house" party, offering $10,000 to any guest who can make it through the night in this spooky old manse, where seven murders have taken place over the years. Now celebrating its 60th anniversary, the film is famous for introducing William Castle's "Emergo" technical innovation — a plastic skeleton that popped out of a cabinet near the screen — and was a huge hit at the box office. DIR/PROD William Castle; SCR Robb White. U.S., 1959, b&w, 75 min. NOT RATED
