The ultimate example of less-is-more in horror cinema. Eleanor "Nell" Vance (Julie Harris) has volunteered for a study on paranormal activity conducted by Dr. John Markway (Richard Johnson), with two other participants: Luke Sanderson (Russ Tamblyn), who stands to inherit Hill House, where the study's being held, and Theodora (Claire Bloom) a supposed psychic. Turns out the doctor's suspicions about the existence of ghosts are correct. There's something in the house with them. But what?

Made in 1963 and directed by Creator/RobertWise, it was based on the book ''Literature/TheHauntingOfHillHouse'' by Creator/ShirleyJackson.
