  1. Hi, I just found your blog. I noticed that you seem to like old horror movies. I do too. I was hoping that you could tell me the name of a movie I used to see when I was a kid. it’s about a group of paranormal investigators who show up at an old “haunted” house. The story ends with all of them gathered in a room listening to the sound of a loud boom. It turns out that the noises are being made by the ghost of an old bedridden woman who was beating on the wall to summon her nurse. One night, the old woman beat on the wall for help but the nurse was off seeing her boyfriend and so the old woman died. She of course didn’t realize she was dead and was now haunting the house and ultimately ended up driving the nurse to commit suicide. It used to come on tv a lot, in the seventies, and for some reason I seem to think that it’s either a rip-off of the haunting on a sequel to the Haunting.If you have any idea what the name of this movie is, I would be forever grateful. I’ve been looking for it for years.
