The Haunting 1 hr. 53 min 

One of the most highly regarded haunted house films ever produced, Robert Wise's The Haunting (based on Shirley Jackson's novel The Haunting of Hill House) weaves the dark tale of a questionably sane young woman and a sinister house which holds a terrifying past. Invited to join anthropologist Dr. Markway (Richard Johnson), ESP expert Theodora (Claire Bloom), and probable heir to the estate Luke Sanderson (Russ Tamblyn) in order to dispel the near mythical tales that surround the house, unstable Eleanor Vance (Julie Harris) agrees to spend a few nights in the house following the death of her mother. As they slowly begin to discover, the horrific and seemingly unbelievable tales may hold more truth than the skeptical guests might have previously expected. With a seemingly unstoppable supernatural force lurking in every shadow, the probability of anyone escaping the evil clutch of the cursed mansion seems increasingly remote.

Meet us in the lobby ahead of time, look for us in the theater, or catch up with us near the outer doors after the film.

REVIEWS:

THE HAUNTING: What makes the film so effective is not so much the slightly sinister characterization of the generally neurotic group, but the fact that [director] Wise makes the house itself the central character, a beautifully designed and highly atmospheric entity.

This is one of the best supernatural chillers ever made.

...easily ranks among the finest supernatural suspense films ever made.

THE BIRDS: Few films depict so eerily yet so meticulously the metaphysical and historical sense of a world out of joint.

The Birds represents better than any other Hitchcock film the extreme polarities of his universe: vicious unpredictability and moral and emotional disorder on the one hand, and rigorous stylistic control and formal organization, on the other.

    A fun evening - Thanks, Susan! The Birds actually amused more than scared me the second time around (I had to stifle laughter so I wouldn't annoy other moviegoers!). The Haunting was a cool classic; better than I had expected.

    I remember as a kid watching The Haunting and was scared crazy. No blood and guts needed. Even the book scared me.
