Movie Reviews

Empire - 10/10 by Ian Freer It's one of the most highly-wrought (indeed, overwrought) films ever made, with art direction, editing, sound effects, weird camera angles and lighting orchestrated to fill every frame with hints of the unsettling.
The Guardian - 9/10 by Stuart Heritage From a potentially creaky, cliche-filled premise (a gaggle of stereotypes are invited to a spooky old house where all is not as it seems), director Robert Wise leads us on a brilliantly unsettling journey.
The A.V. Club - 8/10 by Keith Phipps Sound effects, disorienting camera work, expert editing, and Humphrey Searle's discomfiting score all suggest, without showing, a horrible presence waiting in the wings. Though parts of The Haunting are talky, even that works in the film's favor, as Tamblyn's glib dismissals and Johnson's calm professorial tone are unable to clear up the mystery at its core. After all, the specters that can't be seen, classified, or otherwise contained are the scariest of all.
The New Yorker - 8/10 by Pauline Kael An undeniably effective adaptation of the Shirley Jackson novel and one of the best haunted-house movies.
Chicago Reader - 7/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum Robert Wise's 1963 black-and-white 'Scope translation of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House was pretty effective when it came out, aided by Wise's skill as an editor.
The New York Times - 6/10 by Bosley Crowther So it looks as though this film simply makes more goose pimples than sense, which is rather surprising and disappointing for a picture with two such actresses, who are very good all the way through it, and produced and directed by the able Robert Wise.
User Review - 7/10 by JLuis_001 I can believe that this was scary in its time, but now it pales in every way, the supernatural atmosphere is pretty good and that's what kept me going and kept me interested and above all is what ends up keeping this movie in good level. Nothing to do with what I expected but it was not bad either.
