The Haunting (1963)

the haunting

The Haunting is a wonderfully done movie directed by the legendary Robert Wise. The movie is about a group of people who have been brought into haunted house as part of a fear study, but things start happening and you wonder what is really going on in the house. The movie is based on the classic spook-fest Shirley Jackson’s novel “The Haunting of Hill House” and the script is just as tight as the book. Which is rare in the horror world. Make sure you see the film in its full aspect ratio, so that you can see the wonderful art direction that was done on the house (one of the real stars of the movie).
