The Haunting (1963), directed by Robert Wise.  Pure haunted house story, with psychic researchers lodging where no one else will. Much spookiness, but is it the house or something they brought with them? Is it a supernatural force, or the growing dementia of one of their members?  Strong cast, great house. A combination of nighttime knocks and banging, weird psychodrama between the characters, and the increasingly distracted interior monologue of one of them.

The Haunting directed by Robert Wise. A LOT of Buyer Beware directly references/borrows from this film/novel
