Watched this last night, a classic case if movie not capturing the feel of the book. I think this could do with a remake actually, polish it up a bit and fix up those unfortunate ectoplasm effects.
It bums me out that one of my favourite scenes in the book was left out of both this and the graphic novel adaption. It’s near the end after Lionel Barrett is killed, an his wife is trying to escape, the house sends these apparitions at her that look like distorted versions of her husband, crying “it’s me, it’s me”. Something about that is so cruel and spooky to me, I wanna see it in the adaptions!
