Movie Info

Inspired by actual documents from the archives of the Catholic Church, writer/director Elio Quiroga's The Haunting tells the tale of a respected pediatrician who falls prey to a supernatural force while grieving the death of her infant child. Shortly after losing her child to SIDS, Francesca (Ana Torrent) moves with her family to a sprawling mansion in the Spanish countryside and attempts to take the first slow steps toward emotional recovery. But despite the best efforts of her husband Pedro and their psychiatrist friend Jean, Francesco cannot break free from the suffocating grip of grief. Later, a series of shocking and horrific visions drive the mourning mother to the edge of madness: is Francesco's new house really haunted, or is it all just in her head. As the visitations become more intense, Francesco realizes that they seem to be emanating from the attic and the basement, two rooms that have been declared off-limits to the family, and have been locked up tight for reassurance. Her crumbling psyche on the verge of total collapse, Francesco grows compelled to solve the mystery before she's consumed by it.

Audience Reviews for The Haunting (No-Do) (Nodo)(The Beckoning)

Tremendously boring and unimaginative. The effects are so mild and reserved it was just like there were no effects to speak of. The reveals have no shock value as they were telegraphed from the beginning. The acting is low-professional; actually for all I know these are amateurs. This is a steaming pile of dung.

A decent haunted house film, No-Do failed to truly succeed because of its special effects that were just a little too apparently CG. Otherwise, it was a smart haunting film that intelligently drew upon Spanish history.

Well done Spanish haunted house flick. The "No-Do"of the title refers to the No-Do news documentaries of the Franco era, which are used for some interesting transitions and sequences, as well a featuring prominently in the plot.
