This episode, Aaron and Derek cover 1963's classic horror film "The Haunting" directed by Robert Wise and adapted by Nelson Gidding from Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel "The Haunting of Hill House." They talk about the set dressing of the house, the movie similarities and deviations from the novel, and how Gidding and Wise's take on the story influenced the adaptation. They also discuss Nell and Theo's characterizations, the horror shown through interpersonal relationships in a secluded space, what ultimately makes this a great horror gateway movie, and many other aspects of the film. Aaron is a big boy with his cup of stars. Derek just wants to hold a ghost's hand.
