Actor Michael Gough spent a very brief time on the production, which is why he is uncredited. Aside from his short appearance in the films finale, Gough's only other contributions to the film were a few recorded lines of dialog. See more »
In the film's opening credits, there is a spelling mistake. The copyright line reads "... 20th Century Fox Film Corpoation". See more »
You've just got to love this 70's classic. It has everything a haunted house tale should have. Unlike most of the haunted house tales, this one manages to keep things a little bit more believable. The time and date stamps are particularly effective here.
All the players do a great job with their roles, especially Roddy McDowall. I love Mrs. Barrett's erotic fixations. Unfortunately, they'll probably get the bright idea of remaking this into a horrible piece of crap.
This movie relies mostly on atmosphere, not on gore or other special effects. If thats what you are looking for, you'd better try somewhere else.
