The Haunting (1999) In "The Haunting," a group of insomniac volunteer research subjects travel to a massive old mansion to undergo testing for what they believe to be insomnia studies. What they do not know is that the professor in charge is actually conducting experiments on human fear. As the days and nights pass, the group slowly begins to learn the terrifying secret behind the house's former owner. They soon realize that the house is pure evil, and they must battle a terrifying spirit to escape the house of nightmares.

More Movie Taglines:
  • Some houses are born bad
  • Sleep Tight
  • Welcome to Hill House. This is its body, this is its skin, this is its eyes. Won't you come in?
  • Ghosts with the most.
  • It will haunt you
  • Inside the Haunted
  • There once was a house, a bright happy home, something bad happened, now it sits all alone. It's pillars are its bones, it's walls are it's skin, it's windows are it's eyes, won't you come in.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Eleanor "Nell" Vance: Purgatory is over, you go to hell.
  • Luke: What's the deal with the Addams Family mansion?
  • Theo: You feel cut off from the world, but the world has missed you. Happy tossing and turning.
  • [looking at the "Door Of Hell"] Theo: You don't get this from the Martha Stewart Catalog.
  • Theo: Isn't it based on the Gates of Hell, by Rodin? Eleanor "Nell" Vance: Well, It's not just hell. You see the children, they're are reaching up for heaven, but their souls are trapped in purgatory. And these are the demons.... who can hold on to your soul for as long as they want. Theo: Did you study art? Eleanor "Nell" Vance: No, I studied purgatory. I was there once for eleven years. It's when your soul is caught between the living and the dead.
Movie Trivia:
  • The creaks and moans heard throughout the house were pre-recorded and played during filming in order to get a more natural expression of fear out of the actors.
  • The house used in the film is located in Grantham, England and is owned by the University of Evansville (Indiana). It is used by students that study abroad.
  • The title of the movie was changed from "The Haunting of Hill House" (another film, House on Haunted Hill (1999) was to be released later that year).
  • Liam Neeson is afraid of heights so his fear when he was dangling off the flight of steps whilst trying to save Nell, required no acting
  • Writer Michael Tolkin, as script doctor, did a uncredited re-write on the script.
