MOVIES: This 1960’s Horror Film Put Queerness Up Front

The Haunting

In the 1960s, people weren’t generally accustomed to seeing LGBT+ representation on screen. The Haunting, for many, changed that.

The film, released in 1963, has gone down in history as one of the greatest horror films ever made. Based on the acclaimed novel The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, it follows a group of people who descend on a supposedly haunted house for a supernatural experiment. Ultimately, The Haunting was only a modest success at the box office, with some cinema-goers disappointed by a film that relies more on atmosphere than jump scares.

Despite this, The Haunting has endured as a classic of the genre – Martin Scorsese once placed it at number one on his list of the best horror films of all time.
