Netflix’s newest horror series The Haunting of Hill House was released last week to rave reviews… and it’s out in time for the run up to Halloween.
Based on the 1959 novel of the same name by Shirley Jackson, The Haunting of Hill House switches between the early 90’s and present day, following a family haunted by the house of their childhood.
I’ll admit I’m a bit of a Netflix binger, and I watched THoHH in two days. Yup, all ten hours of it.
A mixture of creepy, terrifying and heartwarming (certain aspects of the family are emotionally written and acted), Haunting is the perfect watch in the run-up to Halloween.

The show is a satisfying slow burner, which centres around four siblings, Shirley, Steve, Theo and Luke who “grew up in the most famous haunted house in America”, who later return after the suicide of their sister, Nell.
It stars Game of Thrones actor Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino from Gerald’s Game, Timothy Hutton, Elizabeth Reaser and Henry Thomas.

As a deaf person, i am not scared easily, lacking sound cues. #HauntingofHillHouse is freaking the CRAP out of me. I have fallen off my Airwalk machine twice and shouted “What the actual FUCK” at the screen. Brava, guys.????????????????

Y’all can sleep on #HauntingofHillHouse all you want but that shit messed me up mentally, emotionally, it made me feel things, I was creeped out going to bed last night, it made me want to cry. It’s a masterpiece. THATS the tea

Grab the blankets and popcorn, ’cause come October, you’re not leaving the house any time soon.
