The Legend of Hell House

I finally watched this fantastic 1973 horror a couple of days ago, and wanted to share some of my favourite shots with you. It was directed by John Hough, and stars former child actress Pamela Franklin as well as a nicely understated Roddy McDowell.  There’s a real sexual intensity to the film – highlights include the fondling of a statue (pictured below) and consensual sex with a manipulative ghost.

The film’s excellent score was created by Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson, so if you haven’t seen it you could play a Radiophonic Workshop drone track of your choice while you look at the following images. Much to my disappointment, the soundtrack is commercially unavailable.
