Hill House (!) is a haunted house attraction by way of historic home landmark. 2 kids experience all the bumps in the night the house has to offer while searching for the 100 y/o head (skull?) of a decapitated boy (that cutie on the cover!). It‘s a silly romp that mixed in some decent ghost stories (charred hands on the mantelpiece; hungry dumbwaiter) w/nonsensical “scares” like a roomful of cats (??). Sure, it‘s fine. Not one of his best.
This book plays out in a disturbing fashion, but then loses its nerve at the end. Everything turns out to be okay and I would have liked it better if it hadn't. However, it is the rare Goosebumps book where I felt like the main character had a good relationship with his sister. Often in these books, the sister is just a nuisance or comedy relief. She is snarky in this book too, but there was a mutual respect I could appreciate.
