Shock Till You Drop
One of the greatest tales of terror ever told, Richard Matheson’s Hell House was turned into a movie entitled The Legend of Hell House back in 1973. If you haven’t see it… do yourselves a favor… track it down NOW and watch it before the remake comes. Speaking of which…
Shock Till You Drop is reporting that 20th Century Fox is getting set to revisit that hellish setting once again with a fresh remake. Fox has been trying to get this project off the ground since 2007, but apparently with the success of film’s like The Conjuring, their interest has been more than renewed. As of this writing there’s still no director or writer attached. Stay tuned.
In Hell House, 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.
Look for the original John Hough film to hit Blu-ray later this year from The Scream Factory.
