Critic Reviews

The story is a mess, but for long periods of time that hardly matters. It's beside the point, as we enter one of the most striking spaces I've ever seen in a film.
— Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun-Times)
Didn't Like
The scariest thing about The Haunting is how awful it is. No, worse than awful: desperate. It’s a horror flick afraid of its own audience, as lost in its own geography as the fictional film crew in The Blair Witch Project.
— Lisa Schwarzbaum (Entertainment Weekly)
