Robert Wise, The Haunting (film still), 1963. 112 min., black & white, sound.
Directed by Robert Wise
In this adaptation of Shirley Jackson's novel The Haunting of Hill House —- a group of people gather in a large old house to determine whether or not a poltergeist is the source of rumours that it is haunted. Wise makes the house itself the central character, a beautifully designed and highly atmospheric entity which becomes genuinely frightening.
