The Haunting
Anyone seen the original Haunting? I might check it out on TCM.

One of the best freakin' horror movies I ever did see. A real classic!

just watched my laserdisc of it a couple of weeks ago.
Wouldnt say it's one of my faves ... as i said after i saw it i found the characters a bit to simplistic (except for the dark haired gal)

I appreciate the way the fear was created by things implied .. and noises .. as opposed to FX ... but it really didnt grab me too much.

still glad i saw it though ..

One of the greatest Ghost stories ever. Skip the remake and go right to the original.

The remake is horrible. But the original is one of the best horror movies ever made, in my opinion. I like how faithful it stayed to the original story and I like that the scares were really subtle and creepy. It is a very psychological film, so much of it relies on what we don't see.

I have this dvd.....I don't know if I'd say it's one of the best of all time but it's damn good that's for sure.

Alright sweet, thanks guys. I'll check it out, then.

I have to admit that there is two few horror movies out there that has the ability to scare me, but at this The Haunting succeded. a real classic and a scary and unsettling movie. And you can't help but feel satisfied with the ending.
A movie that really does do justice to Shirley Jackson's novel.

absolutely brilliant
this is without a doubt one of the greats in horror.
just the simple techniques,the way they toy with you.like letting there be a long suspended silence with the woman coming straight in front of the camera,and the woman runninng from behind the tree at the end,its just perfect.
