The Subtle Beauty of The Legend of Hell House

Having recently re-watched John Hough's classic,  The Legend of Hell House, I was struck by what a gorgeous film it really is.  Putting the somewhat convoluted plot aside, the movie is filled with such subtle beauty and such outrageous (albeit brief) sexual shenanigans,  that I found myself rewinding just to watch certain scenes over again.  Here are few captures , and if you have not seen this movie from 1973, get on over to Netflix and do so now! 

Emeric Belasco commands it!

I was scared when I saw this as a kid when I saw this; must have been around 10 (had bad parents?). The ectoplasm was a nice touch. The book ain't bad either. Thanks for the screen shots!

Toda, I remember seeing this late at night many years ago and being surprised at how creepy it was. It seems to get better with every viewing.
