    I actually didn’t mid the remake from some years back. It shouldn’t be in teh same room with castle’s original but it worked as a moody popcorn thriller. As for the plot of this one you got a couple things wrong. The main charectar wasn’t duped into going to hell house. She was kidnapped and dragged there by merc treasure hunters who were looking for her sister because she was the only survivor of hell house(why they never mention the taye diggs charectar I don’t know). and Combs is littered throughout the movie appearing in every kill scene as well as the climax(and your right he’s the only person actually acting in this movie). With all that said yes the movie is pretty bad and only a couple kills were even worth seeing.

    Thanks for the input Andrew.
    I thought I remembered she went there on her own and her assistant sold her out to the bad guys. Then the house went into lock down. Shows how non memorable the whole thing was.
    Happy Holidays,
    Gino
