Robert Wise created this classic horror movie with some astonishing sound effects but without any flamboyant visual effects and even without that he realized one of the greatest horror movie ever made and he did of this movie one of the best thrilling classic horror movie of all time.
my rating :2.5=Remarquable - my pleasure meter : 4.0/5.0 Stars

Shirley Jackson’s seminal haunted house novel gets the film adaptation treatment deserving of its artistry and exemplary skill in Robert Wise’s 1963 feature, The Haunting.

Dr. John Markway, an anthropologist with an interest in psychic phenomena, takes two specially selected women to Hill House, a reportedly haunted mansion. Eleanor (Julie Harris), a lonely, eccentric woman with a supernatural event in her past, and the bold Theodora (Claire Bloom), who has ESP, join John and the mansion's heir, cynical Luke (Russ Tamblyn). They are immediately overwhelmed by strange sounds and events, and Eleanor comes to believe the house is alive and speaking directly to her.

The Haunting

“Shirley Jackson’s seminal haunted house novel gets the film adaptation treatment deserving of its artistry and exemplary skill in Robert Wise’s 1963 feature, The Haunting. He captures the emotional unease of the characters, most notably Eleanor, so well and all without displaying a ghostly vision. No matter, the atmosphere of sustained uncertainty and terror he creates makes you somehow convinced that there were spectral presences hidden away in the corners of the frame.   The film follows the novels various character studies and beats expertly. We’re gathered here for academic purposes, those of Professor John Markway to be exact, and the three others we meet are here as test subjects for detecting supernatural phenomena. We’ve got Luke, living heir to the mansion’s property,” read more

31 Days of Horror (Halloween) 2018 (31 movies items)

" Date: 10/28/2018 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-watch Note: One of my favorite ghost and haunted house movies since I was a kid. People these days love Insidious, The Conjuring and Paranormal Activity, but this movie is one of my favorite ghost film next to the original House on Haunted Hill and Poltergeist. I love the story, characters, and the cinematography in this movie. The movie being shot in black and white really help this movie feel more chilling. The camera angles and reflections in this movie"

My movie year 2018 (685 movies items)

"28.10. (Kovo) Ehkä vuoden suurin pettymys. Tätä oli mainostettu muutamissa painoarvoltaan kovissa lähdeteoksissa yhdeksi pelottavimmista kummitustaloelokuvista, itse lähinnä haukottelin draamaan ja henkilöhahmoihin rakentuvan leffan kahden tunnin keston ajan. Pari jännempää kohtausta ja yksi säpsäytys kera valtavan kartanon pahaenteisen silhuetin eivät nyt aivan ole sitä, mitä kauhuelokuvalta haen."

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Cacophonous knocking, inexplicable coldness, and doors that have a habit of opening and closing when no one’s looking—the horrors of Hill House are almost entirely unseen in Robert Wise’s adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s famous novel The Haunting of Hill House. But they’re nonetheless chillingly tangible, brought to life by The Haunting‘s supercharged production values: Elliot Scott’s dazzlingly florid interiors; Davis Boulton’s swooping, darting wide-angle cinematography; and, mo"

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 3 (50 movies items)

" This is often heralded as one of the scariest films of all time and lauded by filmmakers such as Spielberg and Scorsese. Needless to say I was prepared for an amazing film, but I wasn't really blown away by it. In fact, this may be one of the most overrated films in the genre. It's certainly not a bad film, but it had a lot of problems. The dreadful remake took the route of showing us absolutely everything and assaulting our senses with visual effects at every turn. This one is too far down th"

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" A rarity in a genre known for its over-the-top gore. It's as expertly handled as any Hitchcock film; the psychological tension is palpable and the frightening scenes are genuine, tapping into deep fears present in the universal human condition, rather than relying on cheap "Boo!" moments. Because of this, The Haunting has only become more famous since its release over forty years ago, and it's often considered the most successful haunted house story of all time. "
