House on Haunted Hill ★★★

i will defend this period of horror for sure but the aesthetics here are a few degrees beyond my taste, a little too gross and grimy steampunky tool video-ish, and i swear to god if i hear the marilyn manson cover of sweet dreams in another movie i will scream and not in a good way. otherwise i liked the cast and the creepy house, it's a good time!
