The Tomb (1986) is one of those films that has very little information about it. IMdb has the genre listed as Horror, Fantasy. And Wikipedia said The Tomb was a low budget film and that it’s loosely based the novel The Jewel of Seven Stars by Bram Stoker. Both sources have cast list at least,…

If you’ve ever read Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, you’ll understand why I appreciate the film adaptation, The Haunting (1963); not that drivel with Katherine Zeta Jones. It is rare to see an almost identical translation from print to screen, and this is one of those rarities. There are some differences, but I…
