The Legend of Hell House (1973)


Haunted house movies are by far my favourite within the horror genre. Even though I wouldn’t say that Hell House is my favourite haunted house movie, it has always seemed to stand apart from the others. I’m very glad it hasn’t been remade (at least, not to my knowledge), but I’m kind of surprised that it hasn’t been. I haven’t read the book that the film is based on, but from what I understand it seems like people would have appreciated a more accurate adaptation, so I can see that being a factor in the remake if anyone ever does it. If The Legend of Hell House were to be remade, this is my fantasy recast:

"Dr. Barret" … Kenneth Branagh (originally Clive Revill)

"Florence Tanner" … Kacey Rohl (originally Pamela Franklin)

"Benjamin Franklin Fischer" … Jim Carrey (originally Roddy McDowall)

"Ann Barrett" … Julianne Moore (originally Gayle Hunnicutt)
