For over twenty years, Belasco House has stood empty. Regarded as the Mt. 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. Hell House, which inspired the 1973 film The Legend of Hell House, is Mathesons most frightening and shocking book, and an acknowledged classic of the genre.
"Hell House is the scariest haunted house novel ever written. It looms over the rest the way the mountains loom over the foothills." --Stephen King
