The Haunting – 0 stars

How bad? Shortly after release, Liam Neeson told a magazine that The Phantom Menace was his last film (he recanted shortly thereafter). I’m guessing Neeson’s despair had nothing to do with The Phantom Menace.  This is the kind of film that makes me think Alec Baldwin was lying when he told Charlie Rose that when a film doesn’t work out, “it’s not like we planned to make an awful picture.”  The Haunting is made more wretched because it is purports to be a remake of an excellent supernatural, psychological thriller from 1963.
