Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel From Beginning to Bookend Hell House is the sexually awkward tale of a haunted house that can't even bother to be haunted until the book is nearly over Dr Barrett has been hired by a wealthy dying man to investigate one of the most haunted houses known to man Hell House Along with his wife and two professional mediums Dr Barrett packs up his scientific gear and embarks to the long abandoned house to settle the uestion once and for all Do ghosts actually exist Perhaps the most physically chilling aspect of the house is that all of its windows have been bricked up so the interior is cast in eternal gloom It's reputation however is the most terrifying aspect of all It's the Mount Everest of haunted houses you might say There were two attempts to investigate it one in 1931 the other in 1940 Both were disasters Eight people involved in those attempts were killed committed suicide or went insane Only one survived and I have no idea how sound he is There's nothing fancy about the prose in this book which is fine It's a uick and easy read driven forward by the author's keen use of dialogue Even when very little is happening the natural flow of conversation keeps the story moving at a steady pace The book does however have what is perhaps the most poorly constructed sentence yet encountered Tongues of flame leaped upward crackingly Hell House may have been suitable under the category of mystery rather than horror because so much of the book has to do with the uestion of whether or not Dr Barrett can solve the mystery of the house Unfortunately Dr Barrett's scientific approach to hauntings and his pragmatic thinking is often invoked to downplay the paranormal events at Hell House which actively dilutes any chilling moments Over two hundred pages in Horny House Hell House finally shifts from reading like a mystery to proclaiming itself a horror novel Strangely the author relies heavily on rape to drive his plot And he regularly invokes a fear of sexual orientation suggesting that to one character in particular there's nothing horrific than the mere notion of being gay After waiting so long to be spooked or feel a burning need to turn on all the lights the notion that a character might falter in sexual orientation was hardly a terrifying payoff On that note the book often reads like a male sexual fantasy There are several crude salacious hyper sexualized incidences in this book and they always involve women It gives the reader a very uncomfortable sense that the author was penning his own sexual fantasies while writing this book Whether or not that's true doesn't change the fact that the depictions of female characters are enough to invoke an excess of eye rolling and bodily cringes Speaking of which the book includes this bizarre gem Let his God cock sink into my mouth she said Let me drink his holy burning jismAwkward sex scenes aside the book's conclusion leaves something to be desired After such a long wait for noteworthy paranormal events to transpire the story suddenly moves at a clipped pace with a mediocre reveal provided at its conclusion

Hell HouseE parapsychologue s'empresse d'accepter espérant bien ainsi triompher des maléfices et vérifier ses théories scientifiues sur l'existence d'une vie après la mort Arrivés sur place les investigateurs se rendent vite com. Isn't it just another so called haunted house I'm afraid it isn't It's the Mount Everest of haunted housesThisisonecreepybookThe excesses depicted in the history of the Belasco House and here you can list any blasphemy and perversion you can think of make for morbidly fascinating reading in itself and sets the stage for this 1970s horror novel I was actually surprised at how grim this book gets It’s much explicit than contemporaries like Rosemary's Baby which was published only a few years earlier I’m guessing it probably caused a bit of a stir back in the day “a latter day Satan observing his rabble Always dressed in black A giant terrifying figure looking at the hell incarnate he'd createdThis novel seems to enjoy a bit of a cult status I’m saying cult as opposed to classic since it doesn’t receive the same amount of love than say The Haunting of Hill House Here’s the thing though Hell House doesn’t muck around It’s dirty and shameless and unapologetic and deals with some themes that people will still find offensive today If it’s horror you’re after you’ve come to the right place How did it endIf it had ended would we be hereI enjoyed the detail Matheson brings to the table especially pertaining to spiritism spiritualism parapsychology and the occult I actually had to go read up about Spirit Guides and mediumship notably the difference between a mental medium and a physical medium to better understand the sittings séances described It’s old school stuff and pretty much a product of its time but fascinating all the same They'd found him lying on the front porch of the house that morning in September 1940 naked curled up like a fetus shivering and staring into spaceWhile I don’t necessarily approve of some of the nastier elements of books like these I can certainly understand why they’re present These are the things that impinge on the reader’s comfort zone and isn’t that why we read horror stories in the first place As he crossed the entry hall he had the feeling that the house was swallowing him aliveHell House does a terrific job of building tension The first half is fairly slow and sets the mood lights the candles and all that The second half of course is when all hell breaks loose I couldn’t resistIt is easily one of the scariest “haunted house” stories I have read Even so I probably wouldn’t recommend it to casual horror readers It will mess with you It knows we're here

I've been a Richard Matheson fan for a few years now and he rarely disappoints Hell House is no different A dying millionaire offers a physicist and two psychics a hundred thousand dollars apiece to spend a week in a haunted house to prove or disprove the existence of an afterlife Sounds simple enough rightTensions run high between the investigators Barrett thinks Florence's beliefs are crap and his scientific explanation is the only one Fischer doesn't seem to be doing much which also irks Barrett Barret's wife Edith has odd feelings for Florence What's caused by the spirits inhabiting the house and what isn'tThe first third of the book is mostly exposition Things don't really start picking up until halfway though but when they do Hell House is really hard to put down Matheson knows all about suspense and tension Just watch that episode of the Twilight Zone he wrote with the gremlin on the wing of the plane The attacks on the investigators by the spirit of inhabiting the Belasco house were fairly brutalThe ending was a tad on the anti climactic side once all was said and done Be that as it may I should have read this book much earlier Highly recommended for fans of the haunted house sub genre of horror
