The Haunting (1963)

There are ghost stories and haunted house films aplenty in horror cinema, but only a few over the decades have really stood out as head and shoulders above the crowd. Fewer still set the bar at a higher level than what came before them. 1963’s The Haunting sits somewhere near the top (or, in my opinion, at the top) of that list.

    Jerry,

    Excellent post (I tried commenting at the Needless Things site, but I’m not sure if it went through). By an interesting coincidence, I watched “The Haunting” this past weekend.

    I also wrote about it (though not in as much detail) last Halloween:

    Like you, I agree that the 1999 version is nowhere near as good.

    Rick.
