Review: Hell House

To be perfectly honest, I picked up Hell House because I was in desperate need of an audiobook for a long car ride and it happened to have just come in at my library.  It’s not at all what I expected, coming to it only knowing Matheson from his Twilight Zone episodes.  This is pretty much what haunted house movies would be like if directors didn’t have to worry about the MPAA’s ratings board.

Yet despite its attempts to be progressive the story is at its heart a simple retelling of the Haunting of Hill House, which was fine without the Marquis De Sade tribute.  Still Hell House is a fine piece of horror with some honest scares and is well worth a read for fans of the genre.
