Dr. Montague, a psychic researcher, invites a small group to help him carry out his research into the secrets of Hill House, a house that has a history of evil events. He suggests that some houses may be inherently evil, and he hopes to discover what makes them that way. Very soon strange things begin happening–doors open and shut when no one is near; there is banging in the walls; eerie voices are heard. While the doctor insists everyone is safe, others are not so sure. Moreover the house's activities seem to be directed at one of his aides, Miss Vance.
When the doctor's wife arrives and tried to make direct contact with the spirits that she thinks are in the house, the house seems to get more stirred up and angry. The strange happenings get more and more severe, until finally they decide to try to leave.
