  1. William's rating of the film The Haunting

    The neuroticism of the human angle gets a little tiresome by the end, but the vigorous filmmaking is first rate.

  2. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Haunting

    The scientist and the playboy are stock characters from ages past, but The Haunting does have one foot towards the warped, wide-angle terrors of the future. There are moments here of creepy atmosphere, shots composed for both beauty and shocks, and some impressive FX. But what remains most fresh, as the film turns into its second half, is the psychology of repression, with a lesbian subtext that's barely sub.

  3. Nick's rating of the film The Haunting

    This has aged really well. Black and white's atmospheric potential is used to its fullest effect. Be warned: very, very scary.

  4. jewelsofglory's rating of the film The Haunting

  5. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Haunting

    A rollicking revisit to the old dark house with all the expected levers pulled with polished panache, despite some occasional playing to the rear gallery. As with the contemporariness The Innocents, it utilises widescreen well with tangy setups in crisp cinematography. Wise is a somewhat overlooked everyman of a Director competently helmimg most things with integrity and confidence. Next stop: Austria...

  6. chanandre's rating of the film The Haunting

    [Cinémathèque PT - 35mm] I think de Bont's adaptation might be better (more Shyamalan-ish). Still mulling over the rating and feelings on this one...after having seen 'Carnival of Souls' a couple of days ago, everything horror-related is a let down, I reckon...

  7. José Neves's rating of the film The Haunting

    35mm, rewatched. A treaty of composition and editing and and if it wasn't for Julie Harris actor studio' style on excess, literally hysterical, and more concentration in the middle of the film, somehow adrift, and it would be a masterpiece. Nevertheless, is one of the great thriller films of suspense and fantastic.

  8. msmichel's rating of the film The Haunting

    Atmospheric and suspenseful classic horror from director Robert Wise based on the story by Shirley Jackson. The initial setup is very much of the 'old dark house' variety but by concentrating more on the psychological elements the film's novelty works in its favour. Julie Harris and Claire Bloom are very well cast but the films direction, editing and cinematography make this quite memorable.

  9. Aardsy's rating of the film The Haunting

  10. FISCHER's rating of the film The Haunting

    Entre l'explication psychanalytique et la reconnaissance de ces phénomènes occultes, le film laisse la porte ouverte aux interprétations. Envoûtant, étonnant et d'un troublant charme vénéneux... www.cinefiches.com

  11. Fabiha's rating of the film The Haunting

    "An evil old house, the kind some people call haunted, is like an undiscovered country waiting to be explored."

  12. petit astronaute's rating of the film The Haunting

  13. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film The Haunting

    This movie has a lot to love, and a loooooooot to hate. The photography, camera angles, lighting, mise-en-scene-, and compositions are flawless throughout the film. The plot misses the mark entirely though, especially the character of Eleanor... Damn she's annoying.

  14. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film The Haunting

    Wonderful actresses. Skillful direction. Terrific story. Nice camerawork. Lots of pleasure.

  15. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film The Haunting

  16. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film The Haunting

    Re-watched this after at least twenty years. I feel like this film is to horror what ’The Third Man' is to film noir: It's old-fashioned and silly but at the same time very modern and intriguing. It has also aged really well. No school like the old school.

  17. samuele90's rating of the film The Haunting

    Nella solitudine, quella vera, anche qualcuno che bussa alla porte è Orrore.

  18. ceknklsn's rating of the film The Haunting

  19. DarleenisHOME!'s rating of the film The Haunting

    Malgré une photographie sublime,ce film m'a fait chier,je ne souhaitais qu'une chose: que tous ces protagonistes très creusés et horripilants(dont le jeu soulève néanmoins la réussite)meurent dans d'atroces souffrances.Ce qui ne pouvait pas arriver puisqu'il ne s'agit pas d'un film d'horreur,mais d'épouvante,celle que génère l'esprit,celle qui trouble les rapports et la psychologie des personnages,engendrant la folie

  20. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film The Haunting

  21. camille's rating of the film The Haunting

  22. Ulrich JARLØV's rating of the film The Haunting

    did absolutely nothing for me - it's no The Innocents, that's for sure.

  23. Marcus Killerby's rating of the film The Haunting

    Not only does the emperor have no clothes, but he has been skinned alive

  24. AALC's rating of the film The Haunting
