Summary: You ever wanted to see a haunted house that pulled all the stops in terms of mad monster mayhem? Well, it's all here. Here in the house of the Spookies.

History: Somewhere in an abandoned house, there lies Kreon, an old Warlock who has lived there for over half a decade. He needs human sacrifices to both satiate his own immortality and that of his deceased wife. And he has the means to do so. For anyone unfortunate enough to enter his domain can look forward to an array of demons at his beck and call.

Notable Kills: The decomposing method of the octopus demon, and the spider demon sucking out the life essence of a webbed victim.

Final Fate: The only demon we see defeated is the Stone Reaper, who gets knocked off a ledge, as well as the Sewage Zombies getting reduced to nothing. But the other monsters make short work of the group, and even after Kreon's wife betrays him, he lives on to await the next batch of intruders.

Powers/Abilities: The Octopus Demon has electric tentacles, while the hag has standard killing magic. The Spider Demon can shapeshift. Kreon of course has the ability to summon them all.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-Kreon's demonic pockets must be bottomless, because this is one Hell of a variety pack. Every beast here looks like something that deserves its own movie. Special mention goes to the octopus-like demon and the Stone Reaper (even if he goes out like a chump).

Trivia: -This film was originally conceived as "Twisted Souls", but then one thing led to another, and additional footage led to "Spookies".

-You can blame the executive producer for the zombies making those farting noises.

A wild Chupacabra appears!

Thought you were afraid of spiders before?
Of all people to take center stage, these guys?!

"How are my contacts?"

"Where's the meth?!"

Or just to turn you into one of their one. Welcome to the madhouse.

Toilet humor in a film like this? C'mon, people.
