7. Evelyn’s party in House On Haunted Hill

Obviously it would be better to go with the original film than the remake almost every time – but you know what’s interesting? In the original film, it’s not a birthday party. At least they never say it is.

Also – to be honest, the remake really isn’t half bad. The beginning sequence is awesome, Geoffrey Rush – a man way too talented to be in this film – makes an amazing Vincent Price tribute, and even Chris Kattan is convincing enough for this film to actually be scary at times. The ending needed a great deal or work though – however the build up was pretty darn good.

Terrible birthday party though – any party with guns can only be really awesome or really terrible – and this one isn’t the former.
