Unca Fully’s Spooky Time – Monday

The original poster for the original "The Haunting." (MGM)

The photo I posted Friday was from MGM’s “The Haunting,” released back in the 60s. This is not the remake from the 90s. Don’t make that mistake. This is the one filmed in classic horror Black & White.
I remember reading the Reader’s Digest condensed version of Shirley Jackson’s “The Haunting of Hill House,” and being impressed with it’s spookiness…the turn of a phrase made you turn the page, dreading what was going to happen next.
Then I saw the movie – late at night on TV. It was great! After it was over, I realized that I had been chilled to the bone, but hadn’t seen a ghost, monster or anything except a bulging door and hints of faces in the wallpaper. I noticed that the sounds and soundtrack sent my imagination to places very dark and threatening without any gore or ghosts.
The movie is a little dated now, but still worth a viewing here in the weeks before Halloween.
It is my favorite movie in the “Haunted House” category. Tomorrow, I’ll share what’s at the top of my “Scariest Movie” list.

By the way, I also recommend the Shirley Jackson novel. She gets you from the very first paragraph.
“…and whatever walked there, walked alone.”
