Brothers against Evil: The Legend of Hype House
25 February 2009 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Even with TV-show formats that you glorify unconditionally in general, there are always some episodes that you look forward to seeing more than the other ones. I loved practically all episodes of "Supernatural" thus far, but based on my own personal favorite horror movie themes, I mostly anticipated the ones featuring abandoned asylums, driverless vehicles and – like the case here – haunted houses. I'm a huge sucker for "House" movies, particularly the oldies like "The Old Dark House", "The Legend of Hell House" and William Castle's "House on Haunted Hill". And even though this episode of "Supernatural" didn't fully live up to my expectations, it is yet another vivid and imaginative installment with a solid script, good scenery and a wicked sense of humor. Wandering around in Richardson, Texas, Sam & Dean Winchester decide to investigate the local legend of a haunted farmhouse. They're not the only ones, however, as a duo of geeky amateur paranormal investigators (hosting their very own website and everything) continuously get in their way. But there's something strange about the house itself as well. According to the legend the house is inhabited by a the ghost of a farmer who hung his six daughters in the 1930's and now still strings up any woman daring to enter, but by the time of their second visit, the ghost suddenly transformed into an axe-wielding psychopath with slit wrists. There's a fairly unpredictable twist halfway through the episode that doesn't fit into any traditional horror pattern, but it's definitely innovating. Apart from original, "Hell House" is one of the – if not – THE funniest episode of series 1, with Sam and Dean constantly playing pranks on each other and the stereotypically goofy Ghostbusters duo Harry Spangler and Ed Zeddmore.
