Our next episode in the Bond series follows Lois Maxwell (Miss Moneypenny) because George Lazenby really didn’t make any other films of note after his turn as Bond. Because of that, we used Maxwell’s small role as an excuse to watch The Haunting! We are joined by returning guest Lana Rosario to watch this extremely creepy ghost story that doesn’t need to resort to anything as cheesy as jump scares to creep you out. The film is helmed by the great and versatile Robert Wise and stars a group of character actors who you might not immediately recognize but who turn in spectacular performances in this great atmospheric horror film.
Next up, we take a look at the James Bond played by Sir Roger Moore in Live and Let Die!
