THE HAUNTING – OLD PSYCHO THRILLER WITH GOOD SPECIAL EFFECTS

This Dreamworks production is based on the 1936 film of the same name which was based on Shirley Jackson's remarkably frightening story, "The Haunting of Hill House."
Starring Lili Taylor and Liam Neeson, this production draws more on the latest special effects of Hollywood, than on exploring the psyches of the characters, which is what Jackson wrote about.. But those special effects are pretty amazing.
Director Jan de Bont brought us "Twister"and "Speed,"to give you an idea of the possibilities here.
Dr. William Marrow (Neeson) becomes interested in studying the history of an 130 year old mansion, Hill House, which is said to still be haunted by its previous and tragic residents. He lures three unsuspecting people to the house under the pretext of studying sleep disorders.
Then hold on as he delves into what actual power the house possesses. Not for the "feint"of heart.
