The Haunting (1963)

Dr. Markway, doing research to prove the existence of ghosts, investigates Hill House, a large, eerie mansion with a lurid history of violent death and insanity.

Along with its brilliant cinematography, this film has a great atmosphere and is truly suspenseful, being smart enough to not show a lot and leave us in doubt over what is real and what is part of Eleanor's psychosis. The end is very anticlimactic and Dr. Markway's constant supernatural talk was a bit annoying to me, but overall it is a great film, one of the best I've seen in the horror genre.
