According to the Wall Street Journal and Return to House on Haunted Hill producer Joel Silver, the DTV sequel "will give viewers the option to pick different story lines and four alternative endings." (Thanks to Bloody-Disgusting.com for sharing the news, because WSJ.com is a subscription-only website.) This would represent a big step forward from New Line's Final Destination 3 DVD, which took only a few baby steps in the "choose your own plot" direction. And frankly I think it's a very cool little gimmick. Let's face it: Something called "Return to House on Haunted Hill" was, fun flick or awful trash, destined to hit video stacks as yet-another-DTV sequel, but now with this potentially amusing little interactive twist, it could make for a really entertaining novelty flick.
Directed by Victor Garcia, RTHOHH doesn't have a definite release date yet, but the movie just went from a "mild curiosity" to something I hope to review on this very website. Here's hoping the producers have opted to present an "official version" along with all the branching options. It would make the reviewers' job so much easier.
