!!''Return to House on Haunted Hill'' has examples of:

* ArtifactOfDoom: The cursed statue of Baphomet, which is the reason why Dr. Vannacutt's mental asylum is haunted by its previous inhabitants.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Played with Warren, who is first of Desmond's crew to be killed by the ghosts.
* BuryYourGays: Harue is a lesbian, and gets killed by Dr. Vannacutt.
** However [[spoiler: in an inversion of the trope, she is also the only villain that can live, depending on the choices you make. In an even harder inversion, having her not resist the lesbian ghosts advances is what saves her life]].
* ChooseYourOwnAdventure: The unrated DVD features technology which allows you to change the decision made by a character, and thereby radically alter outcome of the movie. There are 96 total ways the movie can play out.
* CureYourGays: Two of the ghosts are lesbians, presumably assigned to the asylum for this reason.
* DeathByPragmatism: One of the possible choices viewers can make, amusingly enough. The pragmatic choice [[spoiler: gets everyone slaughtered in seconds]]. GenreSavvy viewers should know better.
* ExactWords: "You'll never have to work another day in your life" [[spoiler:because I'm going to ''rip your brain out.'']]
* {{Fanservice}}: A pair of female ghosts strip and [[GirlOnGirlIsHot start getting it on with Harue]].
** {{Fandisservice}}:...Until they become naked rotting corpses.
* FinalGirl: [[spoiler: Averted again, both Ariel and Paul survive.]]
** In the ChooseYourOwnAdventure version, viewers can play this trope straight, invert it, or give it a KillEmAll ending.
* GenreSavvy:
-->'''Kyle:''' "Wait. Did you ''really'' just suggest that we ''[[LetsSplitUpGang split up?]]'' In a ''Haunted House?''"
* GuttedLikeAFish: A henchman tries to break down a wall with a pickaxe, only to have a ghost's arm break out and tear open his stomach before pulling the victim into the hole.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Kyle jumps (or swims) in front of Ariel to save her from a ghost, but is then drowned himself.]]
* LetsSplitUpGang: Desmond suggests it in the beginning of the film. Kyle ''[[GenreSavvy immediately]]'' points out what a bad idea it is, but is ignored.
* MacGuffin: The statue of Baphomet, a valuable artifact which is sought out by Desmond and his crew.
* ShoutOut: Within the second film, the director works in two different allusions to Lucas films from Hammer with him commenting that Desmond "[[Film/ANewHope was once a pupil of his]]" and then later proclaiming that the Baphomet idol "[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade belongs in a museum]]" in rapid succession.
* TheStinger: After the end credits, [[spoiler:an additional scene shows a hapless couple finding the statue of Baphomet washed on a beach. If Harue survived, she then shows up, kills them both, and takes Baphomet herself]].
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: Sara is found to be dead at the beginning of the film. [[spoiler:As her sister Ariel discovers, Desmond killed her.]]
* TearOffYourFace: The sole female member of Desmond's crew has her face cut off by the ghost of Dr. Vannacutt.
* YourHeadAsplode: A victim demonstrates what happens to a head when it's crushed by a safe.
