Tedious haunted house movie.
What makes a great ghost story? Its ability to send shivers down your spine and make you want to sleep with the lights on. The Haunting (1963) is a great ghost story. The Haunted is a good ghost story. The story itself is interesting, despite having some flaws. The frights are too few and manages to elicit only a few goosebumps. Quinn plays a guy who has lost his twin sister in a horrible accident at such a young age. Fast forward many years, and he is now a psych. professor who is a skeptic of all things supernatural and goes around debunking frauds. He finally learns that ghosts may really exist, and he is in jeopardy. There are a few special effects that appear quite cheesy, especially toward the end. Overall, a relatively unknown (at least, I've never heard of it prior to catching it on Encore) film worth seeing if you enjoy ghost stories, but you will be able to sleep well afterwards.
At no point was I un-entertained, so I guess that's good. Nothing scary, in fact I found it in the Drama section (even though it has everything to do with ghosts). I was surprised to see Kate Beckinsale show skin...must have been one of her first movies or something.
Who can't resist a good haunting? Excellent in the way they did it.
