Whoever stays in the house for one night will earn $10,000. As the night progresses, the guests are trapped within the house with an assortment of terrors.

The film is in the public domain.


House on Haunted Hill is the tale of five people invited to saty the night in a haunted house, with the stipulation that all doors will be locked at midnight, allowing no accessible escape. Anyone who stays in the house for the entire night given that they are still alive, will each receive $10,000. It seems like a piece of cake, at least, until the ghosts arrive.
