Episode 083 - House on Haunted Hill (1959)
About this episode
Jeff Bezos collated his wealth and used it to blast himself into space while people who work for his company continue to suffer poor working conditions and incredible levels of job dissatisfaction. Richard Branson collated his wealth and used it to quietly buy up vast swathes of the NHS pushing the British public ever closer to the reality of either having health insurance or dying from easily curable illnesses. The millionaire in William Castle's House on Haunted Hill spends his money to carry out an elaborate scheme that ultimately sees two people murdered, and yet he seems significantly less sinister than the two aforementioned people. Put together on a shoestring budget, House on Haunted Hill is a bona fide classic starring the incredible Vincent Price. Naturally one of us dislikes it. No prizes for guessing which one of us dislikes the old film with the questionable special effects...
