Scary Movie Night: “The Haunting” (1963): Somerville Reads 2019
October 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Hill House had stood for 90 years and might stand for 90 more. Silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.
Get in the October spirit and join us for some cheesy horror fun. Come watch the 1963 film adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. We’ll have festive snacks and beverages for you to consume while being entertained, if not frightened.
The Haunting, directed by Robert Wise, stars Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, and Richard Johnson; runs 1 hour and 52 minutes.
