THE HAUNTING  is an undeniably classic horror film.  Even to this day, the black and white film can still scare audiences without the crutch of over-the-top special effects or gore. Based on Shirley Jackson’s novel, The Haunting of Hill House (a beautifully written, and equally terrifying haunted house story), the film sets itself apart from its source material. It is, instead, an exploration of a woman’s descent into hysteria, and the consequences of taking her far out of her regular surroundings.
