But it wasn't gory, supporting my theory that the best scary movies are not gory. The scares were based on the subtle events that gradually led up to the huge events. The anticipation would make your heart stop. At some point in the movie, I had to watch it with just one eye peeking out of a blanket. Certainly makes you think twice before buying an old home (and why IS that old home priced sooooooooo low????)
It was a movie that came out in the 60's and it was very ghostly.
In 1973 a sequel was made 'The Legend of Hill House'.
