Spocklight: A Star Trek Podcast

Spocklight At The Movies 2: The Haunting

October 30, 2018

In our first ever Halloween special, the Spocklight crew investigate Robert Wise's (Director of ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture’) 1963 horror classic ‘The Haunting’.

Liam praises the claustrophobic production design of Elliot Scott, Paul highlights how Julie Harris' own fragile mental state fuelled her frenzied performance and Matt delves into the world of black and white psychological horror cinema.

We compare and contrast the movie with Shirley Jackson's original source novel, the disastrous 1999 Jan De Bont remake starring Liam Neeson and Netflix's own hot new adaptation, ‘The Haunting of Hill House’.

We also chat Star trek’s very own Halloween special from The Original Series, ‘Catspaw’.

So listener beware, you're in for a scare!
