Description

The Haunting Four seekers have come to the ugly, abandoned old mansion: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of the psychic phenomenon called haunting; Theodara, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, the lonely, homeless girl well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the adventurous future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable noises and self-closing doors, but Hill House is gathering its powers and will soon choose one of them to make its own.

        SHIRLEY JACKSON first received wide critical acclaim for her short story "The Lottery," which was published in1949. Her novels which include The Sundial, The Bird's Nest, Hangsman, The Road Through the Wall, and We Have Always Lived in the Castle, in addition to the Haunting of Hill House, are characterized by her use of realistic settings for tales that often involve elements of horror and the occult. "Come Along with Me" is a collection of stories, lectures, and part of the novel she was working on when she died in 1965.

      • content: Bernadette Dunne's performance of Jackson's novel is so eerily superb that she breathes new life into the 1959 ghost story--best remembered by many as the 1963 film starring Julie Harris. An occult scholar gathers three others with experience of psychic phenomena to investigate whether Hill House is truly haunted--with chilling results. Dunne's creepy husky voice is, at the same time, quaint and quavering as the timid Eleanor. As the other, more stable, characters Dunne uses firmer, more confident, inflections. But it is Eleanor's story, and we hear her whimsical tangents and flights of fancy in Dunne's voice. Soon we're swept away by Eleanor's rising hysteria, delivered breathlessly by Dunne, as Hill House's forces make their presence known. Dunne's voicings of Eleanor's inner monologues are fully credible as she becomes unnerved by emotional torment, mounting despair, and hatred--all invoked by the ghastly gothic structure at the top of the hill.
