The Movie: The Haunting (1963)
What Is It?: Robert Wise’s adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House proves that it’s what you don’t see that’s the scariest. However, what you do hear will make you crap your pants. This movie has everything: scares, laughs, likable yet deeply flawed characters acted by an expert cast, and brilliant camerawork. John Carpenter thinks it’s bullshit because you don’t see any ghosts. Too bad for him.
Why Today?: Today is Paranormal Day.
