Haunting of Winchester House

"I have seen scarier stuff in Goosebumps! this movie while yes based loosely on the REAL Winchester house which looks like nothing of the one in this film.(it looks Cgi'd In Bad or drawn in!). The movie is rarely scary,and there is even bad editing like a moment when it seems they are rewinding the film? also the End while a good twist if not Cliched and done so many times in so many movies still makes this low budget in a bad way movie still not worth watching."
Aw, C'mon, it Ain't that Bad

"Normally I would slam a cheesy movie like this, but I'm giving this three stars for some actually creepy moments and a pretty cool ending. It wasn't totally bad. You can't blame the actors, I mean, a script like this did not require Meryl Streep in the title role. It seemed like they were having fun, and I actually had fun watching this, and making fun of this, which was half the fun! Great ending, that's all I can say on that. Not really sure why they made any reference to Winchester House at all, I think they could have just left that out and they probably would have had a better movie. It seems most people felt ripped off because it had nothing to do with the actual Winchester House, except stealing the story of the legend of the house to make this movie. Really wasn't necessary though. The photo of the people in the 19th century had much better hair styles than the caretaker family did. And Harrison Dent looked like he just walked out of a Shaft movie. That's part of the "bad" charm of this little flick. And hey, did you know that squirrels will eat your nuts? Yeah, it's a joke, a bad joke, what else would you expect from this movie. I am not going to come right out and recommend this movie and get some folks mad at me for making them spend $5.00 on this after rummaging through the Wal-Mart DVD bargain bin. But I myself feel it was $5.00 well spent. It was either this or a Michael Jackson DVD. I prefer this."
Revisiting "One Step Beyond"

"This reminded me so much of an episode from the classic TV show "One Step Beyond" hosted by John Newland. Lira Kellerman is fantastic and holds the glue and the clue to this film. She was fantastic in "Junction" and is the principal in this chilling ghost story. While others gave so-so reviews, this is a great throw-back to what ghost tales are all about. I thoroughly enjoyed it."
