Haunting Done Right

The Haunting

Two guys and two chicks (one a psychically-tuned smart-mouth girl-preferer, the other so sexually repressed she’s actually scarier than the ghost) embark on a scientific study of a mega huge house haunted by an old sick broad who used to stink up the place with her oldness.

Door knobs turn by unseen hands. Pounding TV-interrupting noises emanate from the walls. Laughing voices trickle from nowhere. (Probably canned ghost laughter from a ghost TV.)

The Haunting

All this surprisingly effective spooky-ass stuff going on and the best line comes from one of the guys making a pitcher of cold booze. Holding a fresh batch of the good stuff, he walks into a room that just experienced a full-on spectral visitation, looks up and notices everybody staring in horror. “What – did I use too much Vermouth?” Classic.

Even though it came out in 1963, The Haunting remains as one of the greatest ghost flicks to ever make us fill, empty and re-fill our pants due to being spooked out ’n stuff.
