An average movie

First time I watched it, I thought it was really terrible, in fact, one of the worst movies I have seen but then I watched it again and I thought it was actually watchable after all. Of course, the story was preposterous but the special effects were actually pretty good. You have a good cast (Liam Neeson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lili Taylor, Owen Wilson) and they all do their best but the story was ... read more

The movie is about a study in fear. I was reading Leonard Maltin's review, and he seems to state there were "virtually no scares" in the movie. I was really scared. Perhaps people are getting desensitized because the movies are getting more and more graphic, more special effects, more deaths, more explosions.

The first half of this movie is pretty good, the set is really beautiful. I liked the unusual approach to the haunted house trope - the fear study. But the second half was ridiculous. Terrible dialog, really awful typecast characters (e.g. CZJ is the slut who wants to sleep with everyone...although she doesn't sleep with anyone at all). After the reveal of the plot twist I couldn't take it anymore... read more

Description: Hill House was built 130 years ago by a textile baron for his wife and children that they would never have. Instead it was filled with stories of tragedy and ominous tales of death that left the house uninhabited...or so it seemed. A century later, Dr. David Marrow discovers the house and, intrigued by its history, he invites three of ... (more)

Nostalgia Critic's closing thoughts (45 movies items)

"And that's the remake of The Haunting. (quivers in rage and raises his arms in the air; calms down) ...I don't particularly care for it. It's one of the worst remakes of all time, if not THE worst. I mean when you get down to it, what's The Haunting really about? Eleanor: It's about family! NC: NO IT'S NOT! (instantly calming down) No, it's not. It's about being scared, and I hate to break it to you, folks, but redemption isn't scary. The original is scary. There's no cartoon ghosts, dumbass su"

"- Worst Sequel or Remake While there was no Worst Remake or Sequel category at the time back in 1999. These are the picks that I think would most likely been nominated for worst sequel or remake. "
