Product Description

Following the birth of their new baby Francesca and Pedro move to a new house far from the city in the hope it will mend their tense relationship. But from the first night Francesca feels something is very wrong. There are strange sounds, fleeting footsteps, echoed cries and ghostly apparitions witnessed only by her. The house seems to be hiding a terrible secret. Both the cellar and the attic are locked and barred to the family and it is from these places that Francesca receives the supernatural nocturnal visits that are slowly driving her mad. For the sake of her baby, and her sanity, she must communicate with whoever is haunting her and pray they mean her no harm!

The Haunting, set in an excellent creepy house formerly used as a school by Jesuit priests is rented to a doctor and her husband and 4 month old baby. The doc is under psychiatric care and to begin with it seems obvious that this new home , very cut off from everyone else, is the perfect retreat to recover, from what? you learn about this as the film progresses. As you would expect, creepy things begin to happen as this is a supernatural movie, the build up is very well paced and the clues are really very interesting. One thing I most enjoyed about it though was the cinematography and very interesting uses of projector film effects. Strong acting throughout, interesting characters and storyline and excellent ghostly moments. (One particular scene made me think about The Dark Hour, another excellent Spanish horror movie.)

I just rented this on the plot synopsis and was already biased towards foreign horror movies as (as everyone knows already) America is only capable of remakes and very predictable format storylines.
This film is a solid supernatural thriller, not a gore fest but a thinking persons mystery with an excellent atmosphere that stayed with me afterwards. Also contains hints of what I most liked about the game Project Zero (Fatal Frame). I am always looking for movies like that. Thank you Spain for being original film-makers again. 10/10.

One of the better ghost stories around... but be warned, if you have an aversion to catholic priests right now, then you'll REALLY hate them by the time you finish this movie.

This dvd (at the time of writing) has a low star rating but that is mainly due to the fact that people were expecting an English language film. This movie is in Spanish and it has English sub-titles. If you can appreciate "Pan's Labyrinth" and "The Orphanage" then you will have a good time with this movie.

Basically, the plot centres around a young family who move into a spooky mansion that was once a school run by priests. The holy fathers did some despicable things to a handful of children and now their very disgruntled spirits haunt the mansion along with something even more hideous. I wont give away what it is or why it's there... but it's a darn good film in the vein of "The Exorcist". It doesn't suffer from CGI overload and there are no nauseating "pretty people" or smart-mouth teenagers with attitude that are so prevalent in Hollywood product these days. This is a good, well-acted, atmospheric movie that may have you looking over your shoulder if you watch it alone.

A nice, sharp, anamorphic, wide screen picture. A "making of" featurette and a trailer is what you get on this dvd. I'm glad I bought it. I watched it yesterday and I could watch it again right now.

If you like a classic and atmospheric Ghost story than this is for you! This film genuinely scared me in several places in the same way that a classic 19th century horror story has done in the past. I can recommend this film to anyone who does not have problems with subtitles.

It was fairly chilling, different from your typical haunting, worth a watch.

A PLACE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL..Francesca is a young pediatrician traumatized by the loss of a child through crib death. When the family moves to a new home in the country supposedly to help recover from the experience she begins seeing inexplicable things.The house in which they now live seems to hide terrible secrets. Both the cellar and the attic are locked and barred to the family - and it is from both of these places that Francesca receives nocturnal visits that are slowly driving her mad.

I HAD SEEN THIS MOVIE ALONE LAST SATURDAY NIGHT BETWEEN 11.30 P.M. ONWARDS.IT IS MY HABBIT TO SEE A HORROR MOVIE ALONE AT MIDNIGHT HOURS TO FULLY ENJOY THE TENSE HORROR SCENES.I THORUGHLY ENJOYED/ FRIGHTENED.EVEN THOUGH I DONOT KNOW ABC OF SPANISH STILL I WAS SEEING SUB-TITLES AND MOVIE.
I WILL RATE AS A GOOD HORROR MOVIE WHICH I CAN SEE AFTER SIX MONTHS ONCE AGAIN.

IAM ESPECIALLY GRATEFUL TO ZOVERSTOCKS FOR DELIVERING THE SAME BEFORE TIME.ONE VERY APPRECIABLE THING ABOUT ZOVERSTOCKS IS THAT --THEIR--USED MOVIE DVDS ARE AS GOOD AS NEW.I HAD ORDERED AROUND 15 USED DVDS FROM THEM AND NOT A SINGLE ONE WAS TROUBLESOME--TOUCH WOOD.
