I just saw this--I remember that I loved it when I read it....time for a re-read (as long as I can find it....) ;)

I would totally read this again someday. A horror classic.

I'm at page 108 or December 22, 1970 at 10:18 pm.

Okay, (view spoiler)

This is fun. :)

Thanks Charlene :)

wow, I didn't realize this before but you notice how Richard Matheson is using a lot of sexy words? I did this time around. but anyways, I'm only doing to do this once so here goes. i like the book and the movie but as separate things. although it's different, i like the casting in the movie a lot. but it sure could've been better. ok, that's that.

yes that was!

I'm about half way through (view spoiler)

I'm done! whew! I'm not sure this is a book I'd recommend listening to at work. even with ear buds. it's intense and I just wanted to stand there dumbfounded and scared for these poor souls. I loved it this time around just as much as I did the first time. Ray Porter is the narrator and I think he does an outstanding job. looking at some other books he narrates is: 14 by peter clines- awesome! lots of jonathan mayberry books, ah! the Amityville book, They Thrist- awesome book!

wow, there is a part 2? Return To Hell House Return To Hell House by Nancy A. Collins hmm.. I don't know...


Char  | 16707 comments Mod
Yeah, I don't know about a sequel written by someone else. ??

Overall, I thought Hell House was a blast! I sort of flew through it, because I found it rather difficult to put down.

Kimberly ended up not being able to find her copy and Obsidian ended up having some computer problems, I guess. Anyway, I'm VERY glad that I finally read this one!


Matthew (mpontiff) | 127 comments It's a bit confusing (blame the "return" in the name) but it's actually a prequel to Hell House. The "return" part is about the original team (including 15 year old Fischer) to investigate after Belasco's death.

Now I'm confused and I looked it up. :/

Yeah...I think I'll be avoiding that one.


Latasha (latasha513) | 11129 comments Mod
I think I will too.
