HAUNTED HOUSE MOVIES
Tis the season for scary movies and here’s what I have been watching: “Legend of Hell House,” “The Haunting,” “Amityville Horror” and “Rebecca.” Robert Wise directs “The Haunting” and it is the best because it’s the most psychological. In “Hell House,” the ghost looks like Charlie Rose but Roddy McDowell is super.
Who isn’t crazy about Mrs. Danvers in “Rebecca” talking about underwear? A back story movie on Mrs. D. in happier times should be in the works, huh?
For a comic respite, see "Spooks Run Wild" wherein Bela Lugosi does a sendup on Dracula and the East Side Kids freak out. Bela disliked the kids intensely.
Creepy viewing this Halloween.
