Synopsis:
It was an evil house from the beginning, a house that was born bad. The place is the 90-year-old mansion called Hill House. No one lives there. Or so it seems. But please do come in. Because even if you don't believe in ghosts, there's no denying the terror of 'The Haunting'. Robert Wise returned to psychological horror for this much admired, first screen adaptation of Shirley Jackson's 'The Haunting of Hill House'. Four people come to the house to study its supernatural phenomena. Or has the house drawn at least one of them to it?

A clever and scary film - The Haunting review by LD

Spoiler Alert
24/09/2019

Reminded in many ways of Psycho with this film, which I think preceded it, but would say I got much more satisfaction with The Haunting.

Genuinely quite scary with long moments (in a similar way to Susan Hill's The Woman In Black) that build the tension.

The clever thing though is the story running in parallel about the main character battling with their own inner demons and trying to stay strong, which is unwittingly playing into the hands of the demons living inside the house
