REVIEW: HELL HOUSE BY RICHARD MATHESON

HELL HOUSE
RICHARD MATHESON
GENRE: HORROR


SYNOPSIS (Goodreads):

Rolf Rudolph Deutsch is going die. But when Deutsch, a wealthy magazine and newpaper publisher, starts thinking seriously about his impending death, he offers to pay a physicist and two mediums, one physical and one mental, $100,000 each to establish the facts of life after death.

Dr. Lionel Barrett, the physicist, accompanied by the mediums, travel to the Belasco House in Maine, which has been abandoned and sealed since 1949 after a decade of drug addiction, alcoholism, and debauchery. For one night, Barrett and his colleagues investigate the Belasco House and learn exactly why the townfolks refer to it as the Hell House.



MY TAKE

4 STARS

Hell House is my first Matheson (author of I Am Legend) book, and I'm happy to say it won't be my last. I have a couple more Matheson books on my shelf waiting to be read and I will be looking forward to them.

Hell House is a classic (horror) tale of a haunted house. Of course, with every haunted house there is a mystery to be solved.

Hell House didn't scare me, but it definitely has a certain "creepy" factor to it. I really liked the book and would definitely recommend it.
