The Haunting Movie
Great Fantasy ...or not...
Movie Summary: A scientist doing research on the paranormal invites two women to a haunted mansion. One of the participants soon starts losing her mind.
Movie Plot: Dr. Markway, doing research to prove the existence of ghosts, investigates Hill House, a large, eerie mansion with a lurid history of violent death and insanity. With him are the skeptical young Luke, who stands to inherit the house, the mysterious and clairvoyant Theodora and the insecure Eleanor, whose psychic abilities make her feel somehow attuned to whatever spirits inhabit the old mansion.
