    Watch this, people, and see just how good horror can really be when the emphasis is on what you don't see. Nary a special effect in this entire 1963 masterpiece. And it's the scariest film I've ever seen. A masterpiece.

    Then, after you've enjoyed it, write the studio that now owns this title--Warner--and ask why the hell it isn't on DVD.

    Thanks for posting, Patrick.

    Echoing Jack's sentiments, we need to let Warner know that we want this great film on dvd and we want it as soon as possible.

    One of my all time favorites. The only way to get this flick in OAR is on LD, or to tape it! My VCR still gets plenty of use because of this flick. I recorded it last year on TCM. Maybe this time I'll have to go get a S-VHS blank for this friday.

    I hope a future release of this film includes lots of extras.

    Personally I believe that the reason why this one isn't on DVD yet is because it would really show just how much the remaked truly sucked.
    The original is a wonderful and haunting (no pun intended) film. A true classic![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    But, Rex--and this has been brought up before--is the bulging door necessarily a "special effect"? Is it an optical effect? Or is it the clever manipulation of a prop?

    Um... all of the above. "Special Effect" does not imply that it is CG. Any manipulation of real things, or the creation of false ones to create an illusion is a "special effect."

    Not CG either, Jeremy--nor a projection or any of those things. If we accept the term "special effect" to mean prop manipulation as well, then we are talking about a film with one special effects shot! [​IMG]

    Right. I did not say The Haunting had CG. If you are correcting me, I think you misread my post. We seem to be in total agreement.

    Apologies for misreading. Isn't it fun being in total agreement? [​IMG]

    I just looked back at the last WHV chat and I can't believe I didn't notice this sooner...

    The Haunting is under consideration for 2002. But...they also said that The Exorcist II was not planned, yet it has been announced.
