Un filme que tiene sus bondades. Sabe promover una atmósfera de terror. La introducción es genial. El previo pacto que juntará a expertos hasta la entrada al pórtico. La idea del pánico está más que clara. En su tránsito, la película calcula la emoción, no suelta la historia, el misterio se ajusta. La esposa siendo seducida por los deseos sexuales; buen punto. Lo más decepcionante es su resolución sobre un resentido.
During most of The Legend of Hell House, I was under the impression it was a remake of The Haunting. Not sure if I was happy or disappointed by the fact it wasn't, but I loved it regardless. Pamela Franklin was a doll and the direction was fantastic. The sound editing was impressive also. My only criticism was the explanation of the whole thing at the end which ultimately took away from the whole thing.
Extra credit for the title card to this one: 'Although the story of this film is fictitious, the events depicted involving psychic phenomena are not only very much within the bounds of possibility, but could well be true' -Tom Corbett, clairvoyant and psychic consultant to European royalty
One of my favorite horror films. Stays relatively close to his novel but wish it would have ended with the book's final line: "Merry Christmas". This is a wonderful double feature with Robert Wise's THE HAUNTING, both an adaptation of Shirley Jackson's classic novel. This is one of the great underrated 70s horror films along with MESSIAH OF EVIL.
