#21 – Hell House – Richard Mateson
The House Belasco is presumably the most haunted house in the world. The house itself earned the nickname “Hell House” after the terrible, depraved acts which were committed there under the guidance of Emeric Belasco, house’s previous owner.
Despite two failed expeditions to find life after death, dying and wealthy William Reinhardt Deutsch hires four people – two mediums physicist, and his wife to investigate the house in order to find life after death. The four people people stay one night at the House Belasco and they find out why the house has been closed for years.
