When a rain-soaked Julia comes home she rubs a towel over her head. As she pulls it off slowly, her hair is damp and sticking up on the sides of her head. The next moment it is combed neatly and dry again. See more »
The Haunting of Julia is an absolute must see for those who love eerie gothic style ghost stories that are intelligent and entertaining. The emphasis here is not blood and guts, but rather a sinister study of the meaning of "evil". The acting by the great Mia Farrow is really to be admired and is among her best. She is perfect for this vulnerable role. I love the atmosphere and the house. The film is full of striking visuals. It is a must see in the tradition of films like the original "The Haunting", "The Legend of Hell House", and and "The Changeling".
