Ep. 136 — HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959/1999) with Jennifer Horne
Our Class of 99 series continue this week with a special double feature!
We're joined this week by a special first time guest, Jennifer Horne (yep, the wife of our very own co-host Gary Horne)! Jennifer wanted to come on the show to discuss a film from 1999 and she made a very bold choice in her pick: the William Malone-directed remake of HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL.
While thinking about discussing this film, we also realized that William Castle's original film from 1959 was celebrating its 60th anniversary this year so we thought, "Ya know what? Let's just make this a HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILLdouble feature!"
So in this episode, we'll discuss William Castle, his film and his legacy and how that legacy lead to a series of remakes from his films in the late 90s/early 2000s, starting with HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL. How did it all happen? Listen to find out, and to hear our takes on both films, including how they compare and relate to one another.
And hey, one version got nominated for the Psychotronic Hall of Fame! You'll have to click the link below to find out which (or just listen to the episode).
