What do you think of reverse mortgages?

Let's say I am 65, and I get a reverse mortgage on my house. Do I get a monthly check from the mortgage holder? Will it be the same amount as a normal mortgage that I pay the bank? Or less? And how much less? And most important, what happens if I live to 75, or 85, or 95, or older?
Thanks for the help.
