Ok, this one has been bugging me for years…
As a young child in the 70’s, I seem to remember a scary movie (or was it a television show?) I saw that really freaked me out. With a lot of childhood memories, I may be completely wrong in some details, but I believe it was a story of a babysitter in a haunted house. The ultimate creep out was when the door (to the basement?) was ‘breathing’ and moving in and out, like it was made of rubber… swelling and contracting with the breathing noises. I just knew there was something behind that door, that if I saw it, I would never sleep again!!
I’ve asked all my friends and co-workers about it and they seem to think it was The Haunting (1963)… I’ve watched it recently and that sure doesn’t seem like it. I am almost sure my trauma was in color, plus the ‘babysitter’ angle seems pretty strong in my mind.
Perhaps it was a show about ghosts or hauntings, i.e. “In Search Of“, etc… but I don’t know. I’ve been scouring “In Search Of” lately too, but to no avail.
Can you help??
