THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE (PG) 20TH CENTURY FOX FILM CORPORATION (1973)
Starring: Pamela Franklin, Roddy McDowall, Clive Revill, Gayle Hunnicutt, Roland Culver & more.
A team of paranormal investigators spends a week in a haunted house to find out if there are evil spirits there. Some of the investigators believe that the house is haunted with spirits and some of them don't believe that there are any spirits involved. This film kind of has a Gothic type feel to it and reminds me of a lot of the old HAMMER FILMS of the late '60's and early '70's. The movie is a bit campy for todays standards of haunted house and evil spirits type films. There are some parts where stuff is flying around the room, the table starts levitating and shaking all over the place and it becomes a little cheesy. The story was a bit decent for the time being and the acting was also good even though some of the lines where kind of funny in a cheesy way. The story is a bit slow at first, but keeps building with intensity and creepiness as the film moves forward. The run of the mile Horror fan of today would probably not like this film, but the true die hard Horror fan can see the gem that this classic film is. Check it out and keep and open mind and remember when the film was made!!!
