Cut off from the outside world by its remote location and sinister reputation, Hill House has remained empty and silent except for daily visits from its grumbling caretaker, Mrs. Dudley. Its isolation is broken by the arrival of Dr. Montague, an investigator of supernatural phenomenon. His mission is to delve into the morbid history of the house and come to grips with the forces that have made it uninhabitable. He is joined by 3 others, each with their own reasons for accepting his invitation to share his Hill House sojourn. Their visit begins with jovial informality, but their sensibilities are soon jarred by strange and eerie occurrences. As they struggle to disguise their mounting fear, they are joined by Dr. Montague's wife and a friend who have come to Hill House for purposes of their own. They too are interested in the House's wicked nature but the differing approaches bring on a crisis in which the forces of Hill House are goaded into a new and, for one present, fatal fury.
