All time favorite
25 June 2011 | by Ghoulman24601See all my reviews

Favorite documentary of all time. Includes scenes from the famous Long Branch Haunted Mansion.The Mansion was a three story Haunted Attraction in the 70's and 80's that burned down in 1987.It has a huge fan base,so this documentary's rare scenes of it's interior and exterior are widely sought out. I watched it so much my VHS tape fell apart.Luckily I had a duplicate that I found in my parents attic. The Horror of it All contains some of the view points of classic actors and directors who are no longer with us. Including Titanic's Gloria Stewart who talks about Boris Karloff in The Old Dark House.I believe the same company that produced this also made a great documentary on Bela Lugosi and which was narrated by the great Forrest Ackerman.
