1. "The Haunting" is great!

Tremendous adaptation of Shirley Jackson's psychological novel, The Haunting of Hill House.

No organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.

The Haunting of Hill House, opening paragraph. Shirley Jackson

A hearty recommendation. Catch Miss Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell) in a supporting role. Julie Hartis and Claire Bloom are outstanding.
