Description Dr. Markway, doing research to prove the existence of ghosts, investigates Hill House, a large, eerie mansion with a lurid history of violent death and insanity. With him are the skeptical young Luke, who stands to inherit the house, the mysterious and clairvoyant Theodora and the insecure Eleanor, whose psychic abilities make her feel somehow attuned to whatever spirits inhabit the old mansion. As time goes by it becomes obvious that they have gotten more than they bargained for as the ghostly presence in the house manifests itself in horrific and deadly ways.

    I saw this in TV in the late 1960's, I still think its very scarey without the white figures! I think its one of the best of this type of movie. I also read the book, back then, but it was one of those old "Readersdigest Books" so it was a bit edited, still it was good!

    Try Evil Dead 1 and 2 before the remake gets here.

    9 people love the 1999 version more than this version.

    Like this one... ,"The Innocents",or probably,the worst remake of them all: "The Wicker Man"(It's original is a PAGAN DELIGHT!!!) is that I do not understand why they do it after all? No creativity anymore? Is that it?

    I think it would do to throw The Innocents (1961) and The Changeling (1980) into that mix. Modern haunted house films, well, for me I thought The Orphanage was brilliant, frightening, and...touching, as well.

    It's still very much like watching Frankie from The Member of the Wedding
