Dreck To DVD... Again

According to Joel Silver, speaking to The Wall Street Journal, the House on Haunted Hill sequel has a pretty interesting reason to be going direct to DVD: if it's going to offer viewers alternate plot options at various points, leading off to four different conclusions and countless different digressions along the way.

I hope it catches on. It's not a movie, really - having to press buttons and make arbitrations as you go will be quite distancing - but it sounds like a lot of fun. But will anybody play through enough times to see all options played out? Perhaps being able to select the 'diversion' footage from a menu would be a good thing.
