See below for the exact times and descriptions of the 8 jump scares in The Legend of Hell House, which has a jump scare rating of 1.5.
Jump Scare Rating: The movie prefers to rely heavily on atmosphere and clever camera angles as the vehicle to convey its horror, however there are several minor jump scares, particularly towards the end. None of which should be especially frightful.
Synopsis: Twenty years ago, an operation that was meant to exorcize a haunted mansion ended in failure, with only one out of the four team members surviving the ordeal sane and alive. Now, an eccentric millionaire seeks to finish the mission, hiring on a physicist, with his wife accompanying him, and two mediums; one of whom is the survivor of Hell House.
