'The Haunting' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Jun 14, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Robert Wise's 1963 horror will possess Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is working on 'The Haunting' for a Blu-ray release on August 13.

No one lives in the 90-year-old Hill House. Or so it seems. But come in. Even if you don't believe in ghosts, there's no denying the terror of 'The Haunting.' Wise, whose started his directorial career with 'The Curse of the Cat People' (1944), made his return to psychological horror for this first screen adaptation of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House. Four people (Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Richard Johnson and Russ Tamblyn) come to the house to study its supernatural phenomena. Or has the house drawn at least one of them to it?

Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
