Dr. John Montague is conducting research in the field of the supernatural, and he gets permission from Mrs. Sanderson to join her nephew, Luke, in her inherited home, Hill House, which has claimed the lives of its owners in bizarre accidents.
Dr. Markway requests several people who have had experience with the supernatural to come to help him conduct his research, but in the end, only two accompany them: Theodora, who has extra sensory perception, and Eleanor Lance, who once had an experience with a poltergeist years ago and, after taking care of her mother for years until her death, has lately been living with her sister.
But as the researches investigate into the dark legacy of Hill House, complete with doors closing by themselves and banging on the walls late in the night, Eleanor finds herself being drawn further into the haunted home -- and the house wants Eleanor to join the ghostly inhabitants inside its walls.
Trivia: Ridiculously huge Jesus reference at the end. When Eleanor is blasted onto the door, her arms and legs are in the same position Jesus would've had. She is lowered down by the hands, much like Jesus would've. She also dies to save everyone else, a slightly smaller point is that you see the children 'die' and going into heaven. The bible says 'only those who are like a child are to go to heaven.'
