House, a remote mansion with a sinister reputation has
remained empty for many years except for the daily visits
of its caretaker, Mrs. Dudley, who refuses to stay after
dark. Dr. Montague, an investigator of supernatural phenomena,
has obtained a short lease and invites three people to
Hill House to help explore the history of the house and
to come to grips with occult forces. Each of these three
has his own reason for accepting the invitation: Eleanor
feels guilty for her mother's death; Theodora, who has
ESP powers; and Luke, who will inherit the house someday.
Strange and eerie occurrences soon occur and they struggle
to disguise their mounting fears. Dr. Montague's wife
and her friend, Arthur, show up and attempt to directly
communicate with departed spirits which interferes with
the evil forces of Hill House and results in a tragic
end. Spooky and suspenseful right up to the final curtain!
