The Haunting (1963) feat. Robyn Adams
Lock the bedroom door and be mindful of whose hand you're holding because we're headed to Hill House with Robert Wise's 1963 adaptation of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting. Along for the ride is Robyn Adams, who is a huge fan of the material and brings with her vital knowledge of the book.
Up for debate: how predatory is lesbian Theo? Is Nell queer-coded? And is her relationship to Dr. Markway an attempt to throw off censors?
Plus: loving Mrs. Dudley, Joe's silver lining read of the sad ending, Trace's appreciation of rococo styling, and pushing back against complaints that the audience doesn't see anything
