Rating: 8/10 -- ...one of the most fascinating aspects of The Haunting is the multiple interpretations available for many events, which might be supernatural, or might be the product of a disturbed mind or distorted perceptions. Full Review

...Directed with remarkable visual flair by Robert Wise…...THE HAUNTING is a truly terrifying ghost story...
Los Angeles Times
Aug 15, 2003
What makes the film so effective is not so much the slightly sinister characterisation of the generally neurotic group, but the fact that [director] Wise makes the house itself the central character, a beautifully designed and highly atmospheric entity. Full Review

People stare about in terror and squeak: 'The house, it's alive!' The picture, it's dead. Full Review

Rating: 8/10 -- For the possible overuse of internal monologues and Julie Harris' overwrought but riveting performance as Eleanor, The Haunting still stands up as a relevant and effective study of both the psychology and parapsychology of its themes. Full Review

Frightfests come no better than old dark-house chiller THE HAUNTING...
Variety

Rating: 10/10 -- Borderline perfect... Strip away all of its frightening elements, and the film remains a sophisticated, complex, and tremendously subtle character study. Full Review

Product Description:

A paranormal investigator invites a trio of people to help him examine Hill House, a sinister family estate haunted by the angry souls from its troubled past. While Eleanor (Julie Harris) looks for an escape from the memory of her recently-deceased mother, she becomes increasingly obsessed with the history of the huge, ominous house. Based on Shirley Jackson's lyrical novel, THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, and one of the most frightening psychological horror films ever made, featuring virtually no blood, gore, or monsters for its effective scares.
