The Best and Worst Movie Taglines of All Time, #96

Very nearly late and not all that great, it's the lists of the best and worst movie taglines of all time! Here be the preamble: http://www.mistercinecal.com/2015/06/the-best-and-worst-movie-taglines-of.html

Best #96
Which: "Oh yes. There will be blood."
Where: Saw II
What: Succinct Summary
When: 2005
Why: Well, it's very brief, but it's also accurate. Also wins points for beating the actual film There Will Be Blood to the punch by two years. Who knows what the tagline for that film was, "Oh yes. There will be milkshake"?

Worst #96
Which: "Some houses are born bad."
Where: The Haunting
What: ???
When: 1999
Why: We're still in the nitpicking region of the list, but look: no houses are born anything. You build houses people! As far as I know The Haunting was about an insomnia study, not about a house without a cause, wearing sunglasses over the windows, spoking a cigarette out of the letter box. This house was born bad, are there other houses that became bad due to circumstances? Did those houses come from broken homes?
