Why Mike Flanagan’s the perfect director to adapt The Haunting Of Hill House

19 April 2017 1:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sarah Dobbs May 18, 2017

Turning a much loved literary classic into a TV series isn’t easy, but Netflix is onto a winner with Mike Flanagan

Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting Of Hill House might be the best ghost story ever written. Published in 1959, it’s about a makeshift team of paranormal investigators moving into the legendarily haunted Hill House in an attempt to document and analyse the supernatural phenomena manifesting within its walls – but it’s really about grief, and guilt, and repression, and the desperate longing for a home. It’s beautifully constructed, impeccably written, and genuinely terrifying.

And now it’s being turned into a 10-part Netflix series.

It’s a story that, at least on the surface, appears to lend itself quite easily to screen adaptations, and in fact it’s already been turned into two films: The Haunting (1963) and, »

Forbidden Tomes: Growing Into Insanity – Shirley Jackson’s Coming-of-Age Stories

14 April 2017 1:14 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Indie films have seen a sudden surge of coming-of-age stories, from Sing Street and The Way Way Back to The Edge of Seventeen and The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Most of these stories, though some are darker than others, offer optimistic visions of growing up. This is arguably one of the most existentially frightening processes human beings have to go through, yet the films themselves are never scary. Then there’s Shirley Jackson, the master of quiet terror. She looks at growing up and finds all the absurdity, the madness, and the horror, along with the liberation.

In Hangsaman, her second novel, Jackson tells the story of Natalie. Just before going off to college, Natalie experiences a horrible trauma that follows her into the dorms and classrooms. She falls into a world of petty students, teacher-pupil love triangles, and bizarre peers, ever haunted by her domineering father and the »

Netflix and Mike Flanagan bringing The Haunting of Hill House to the small screen

11 April 2017 8:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Streaming giants Netflix has tapped filmmaker Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus, Ouija: Origin of Evil) to write, direct and produce a ten episode of Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House, Deadline is reporting.

The project – titled Haunting – is being produced by Paramount TV and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and has received a ten episode straight-to-series order from Netflix, in what is being described as a “modern reimagining” of the classic tale, which is widely considered to be one of the best ghost stories of the 20th Century. It has twice been adapted for the big screen in 1963 and 1999.

Before we get to Haunting, Netflix is set to release Flanagan’s next film Gerald’s Game – based on the Stephen King novel, and starring Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood – which is expected to arrive later this year. »

Reel TV: Amblin Is Giving 'The Haunting of Hill House' A New Version on Netflix

10 April 2017 9:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you need help remembering the difference between The Haunting of Hill House and House on Haunted Hill, just remember that one is a Hollywood horror classic that got a big, splashy remake in 1999 and the other is a...a Hollywood horror classic that got a big, splashy remake in 1999. Okay, so they can get a bit confusing on the surface. But now you can also add the distinction that The Haunting of Hill House is the one that was remade a second time, this time for the small screen. Or, rather, we should say re-adapted, since this new The Haunting of Hill House is going back to the original source material of Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel about a scientist who hopes to prove the existence of the supernatural by investigating a supposedly haunted house. This new version is...
