Did You Know?


The last names of the amateur ghost hunters Dean and Sam run into, Zeddemore and Spengler, are references to two of the main characters, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore, in Ghostbusters (1984). See more »


When Sam and Dean are investigating a sound in the basement at 19:30, you can see that the doors to the cabinet change position between scene changes. When Sam reaches out to open the cabinet, the door closest to him in the close-up is open more. But in the zoomed out shot, it's the opposite door that is more ajar. See more »


Sam Winchester: Man, we're not kids anymore, Dean! We're not gonna start that crap up again.
Dean Winchester: Start what up?
Sam Winchester: That... prank stuff. It's stupid, and it always escalates!
Dean Winchester: Oh what's the matter Sammy, afraid you're gonna get a little Nair in your shampoo again, huh?
Sam Winchester: All right. Just remember you started it.
Dean Winchester: Oh ho, bring it on baldy.

One of the Silliest Episodes
24 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Sam reads about a haunted house in Richardson, Texas, in a website, he convinces the reluctant Dean to drive to the place. They investigate the controversial witnesses of the spirit of Mordechai Murdoch, a man who hanged his six daughters and himself in the cellar of his farm in the Great Depression, but they do not find any evidence of truth in the story. Later, they disclose that it was a prank of two teenagers, but the legend of the fiend became real due to the belief of the readers of the site.

"Hell House" is probably the silliest episode of "Supernatural" so far. The story is a joke with the weird friends of Mulder in "X-Files" and is practically a comedy, totally different from the last episodes. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Casa do Inferno" ("Hell House")
