You'll have to plow through some particularly prickly motion picture problems, but if you're patient, The Haunting will reward your scary movie staying power. Of course, should Lightning Media decide to stay with the horrendous dub job given this film (without an original Spanish language option) a Skip It won't be strong enough. For now, we will assume that cooler commercial heads will prevail and the forthcoming package will present several audio options. Until then, the current presentation deserves a definite Recommended rating. It's nothing really new or novel - well, the Church ghost-busters angle seems somewhat original - but it's delivered in a way that will get under your skin, eventually. The haunted house is a hoary old cliche indeed. The Haunting tries to make it viable again, and despite some obvious cinematic setbacks, it does.
