The Haunting Gets new ‘Paramount Presents’ Blu-Ray Release

Just in time to celebrate the Halloween season, The Haunting is getting an updated blu-ray release with new special features, collectibles, and more!

The latest in the “Paramount Presents” line of home releases is The Haunting, a film adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House that shares little in common with the more recent adaptation from Netflix. Despite starring Liam Neeson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lili Taylor, Owen Wilson and Bruce Dern, the film didn’t ignite the box office in 1999, but has developed something of a cult status in the decades since.

As such, it seems like the perfect addition to this line of collectible home entertainment releases. The blu-ray will arrive on October 20, 2020; just in time for Halloween:

The limited-edition Paramount Presents Blu-ray Disc is presented in collectible packaging that includes a foldout image of the film’s theatrical poster, and an interior spread with key movie moments. Newly remastered from a 4K film transfer supervised by Jan de Bont, THE HAUNTING Blu-ray also includes a new Filmmaker Focus with the director, access to a Digital copy of the film, as well as a the previously released vintage behind-the-scenes featurette hosted by Catherine Zeta-Jones, and original trailers.

Bonus Features:

– Filmmaker Focus: Director Jan de Bont on The Haunting

– Behind-the-Scenes Featurette

– Theatrical Teaser

– Theatrical Trailer

Synopsis

For over a century, the foreboding Hill House mansion has sat abandoned…or so it seemed. Intrigued by its past, Dr. Marrow lures three subjects to the site for an experiment. But, from the moment of their arrival, as night descends, the study goes horrifyingly awry, and Hill House unleashes its supernatural wrath on the unsuspecting subjects.
