For over twenty years, Belasco House has stood empty. Regarded as the Mount Everest of haunted houses, its shadowed walls have witnessed scenes of unimaginable horror and depravity. All previous attempts to probe its mysteries have ended in murder, suicide, or insanity. But now, a new investigation has been launched, bringing four strangers to Belasco House in search of the ultimate secrets of life and death. A wealthy publisher, brooding over his impending death, has paid a physicist and two mediums to establish the facts of life after death once and for all. For one night, they will investigate the Belasco House and learn exactly why the townsfolk refer to it as the Hell House.

Hell House, which inspired the 1973 film The Legend of Hell House, is Matheson’s most frightening and shocking book and an acknowledged classic of the genre.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lenny | 2/17/2014

    " Wonderful spooky book that I have read more then once now. The haunting from Balasco gave me a few chills up my spine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jorge Garcia | 1/29/2014

    " Much can be said about Richard Matheson, one of the most respected horror writers in my particular niche of friends and fans. From the very beginning, Matheson gripped me with this story. It's a very typical ghost story, including a cookie-cutter haunted mansion. What's brilliant about Matheson's creation is that his detailing of the massive property makes the reader feel as if they are actually there watching the horrific events unfold. His writing style is also spectacular and lends itself to both flow and literary depth. The complexity of the story and characters is what made me read through this whole book in a matter of two days (something I only do with excellent books). This book taught me that world-building and atmosphere are extremely important in establishing a sense of realism. "

    " A lot of twisted stuff without even the decency of a good plot twist to make it worth it. I've greatly enjoyed Matheson's other work, but this is one I kind of wish I had passed over. "

    " **CONTAINS SPOILERS** I thought there was going to be a lot more scary stuff in it and seeing that its a haunted house i would think that once yer in the house, the ghosts aint gonna let you leave alive. characters came and went freely. "
