Elements of Cinema – The Haunting



1963 • dir Robert Wise w/Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Richard Johnson, Russ Tamblyn • 112 min • Digital

Berklee’s Enrique Gonzalez Müller joins us to discuss this landmark horror film – and the sound design that makes it so memorable. Adapted from Shirley Jackson’s frightening novella The Haunting of Hill House, THE HAUNTING features Richard Johnson as a paranormal investigator who had gathered a trio of people to help him investigate the infamous Hill House – a site of repeated tragedy. And so it is that skeptic Luke (Tamblyn), psychic Theo (Bloom), and sensitive Claire (Harris) find themselves at the mercy of the maze-like, off-kilter manse.
