Movie Summary

Director:
Robert Wise
Released:
1963
Rating:
Not Available

In an old New England house believed to be haunted, an ESP researcher enlists the help of two women, both with paranormal gifts, to investigate the source of the house's evil reputation; they are joined by the sceptical playboy nephew of the house's current owner. From the moment they walk through the door, things take a turn for the worse. Make sure your seat is comfortable before you watch this on TV, because you'll be spending most of this nail-biting movie seated on its edge!
