The Haunting of M. (1979) -- A gem of a ghost story. Rated as one of the finest supernatural themed movies of the 20th Century. In `The Haunting of M', a 19th family is stalked by the ghost of a former resident of the area, a young man who died, in some tragic way as I recall, before he was able to marry. The young man's spirit has become enamored of one of the family's daughters, whose first name begins with the letter M. The ghost is first discovered hovering just visibly in a family photograph that was taken in an earlier scene, gazing longingly at the object of his affection.
His outdated attire signals that, although he might be `there', he is probably not from then. The deceased presence is recognized by someone who knew him in life and speculation begins. At first, the family plays down this incident but their maid knows better. She has been aware for some time that `something walks the night'. Gradually, the ghost makes its presence and plans more evident. A superbly shot, atmospheric movie, rated by many as one of the best ghost stories of the 20th Century.
