Warning: Big spoilers for The Haunting of Hill House ahead!

I could sit here and type out praise for Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House all day long. The horror series effectively delivers genuine scare after scare while also serving up a gut-wrenching story of grief, love, and the lengths we'll go to protect our family. Oh, and it also unpacks a handful of compelling mysteries over the course of its 10 episodes that will gnaw away at you until you reach the final few scenes. One of the biggest among them is: what's behind that freakin' red door? Before I get to that, though, let's back up a second and review.

Olivia (Carla Gugino) and Hugh Crain (Henry Thomas) move their five children into the sprawling, decaying Hill House estate for a few months one Summer in hopes of flipping it and making a ton of money off the sale.

Review: The Haunting Of Hill House is a Beautifully Made Terrifying Horror Drama

The Haunting of Hill House might just be one of the best things created in the horror genre that I’ve ever seen in both film and TV. It’s definitely one of my favorites and I think horror fans will love it.

I’m a big fan of Shirley Jackson’s classic 1959 horror novel that the Netflix series is based on and I’ve enjoyed the film adaptations that have been made over the years. But, this series took that story and created something incredible that I wasn’t expecting.

Not only was the series terrifying, but it was filled with so much heart and emotion. You get to really know the characters in this story and as the story plays out and you get to learn about them and what they went through. The series really makes you care for these characters and I loved the story that revolves around them.

The Haunting of Hill House” (Season 1)

Many have called Shirley Jackson’s gothic novel the scariest book of fiction, as it drew from characters’ psyches rather than spotlighting cheap scares or the house itself. Starring Carla Gugino and Michiel Huisman, the Netflix adaptation looks to inspire terror in the same way, by plunging into the deepest fears and psychological scars of the now grown-up inhabitants of Hill House.

‘The Haunting of Hill House’ Boss on Drawing Inspiration from ‘Lost,’ Creating ‘House Ghosts’ and the Red Room

‘The Haunting of Hill House’ Boss on Drawing Inspiration from ‘Lost,’ Creating ‘House Ghosts’ and the Red Room
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “The Haunting of Hill House,” streaming now on Netflix.

When telling a genre story, writer/director Mike Flanagan has one rule: play with perspective.

The man behind “Hush,” “Absentia,” “Gerald’s Game” and the upcoming “Shining” sequel “Doctor Sleep” has become accustomed to having to “constantly escalate tension” while simultaneously offering reveals to the characters and the audience. But for his 10-episode adaptation of “The Haunting of Hill House,” he took playing with perspective even farther.

“I can shamelessly say it was something I learned watching the first season of ‘Lost,'” Flanagan tells Variety. “I loved the way that it put me in one specific character’s shoes for an episode and then handed off. It created this anticipation for me because I said, ‘I can’t wait until I get to explore this character.”

The Haunting of Hill House Review (Spoiler Free)

The Conjuring meets This Is Us in Netflix's surprisingly emotional new horror series The Haunting of Hill House.

Netflix owned the Halloween season last year with the release of Stranger Things Season 2. An enthusiastic promotional push from the streamer aimed to capitalize on the word-of-mouth based, unexpected success of the first season, and the efforts paid off; Stranger Things was the bell of the horror ball last year. But with the series shelved this October as work on Season 3 continues, Netflix is searching for another “Spooky Szn” juggernaut to fill the void.

Prevailing wisdom would suggest that The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has all of the trappings to be this year’s designated Halloween hit; it’s a gritty remake of a popular ‘90s sitcom, is tied to the zeitgeisty Riverdale universe, and has the involvement of Riverdale showrunner and source material creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Certainly, Sabrina will scare

The Haunting of Hill House Review: Terrifying Tale of Love and Loss

  • TVfanatic
Taking a much-loved work of art like Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House and attempting to make it better than the original is a daring task. Succeeding is nothing short of a miracle.

Creator Mike Flanagan takes the basics of Jackson's novel and uses its foundation for the building blocks of a familiar tale that is more terrifying than its initial telling because he binds the characters together in a more meaningful way.

Instead of a team of scientists investigating paranormal activities, we're introduced to this Hill House when the Crain family moves in filling the haunted manse with love and hope only to see its utter destruction.

Hugh Crain (Henry Thomas/Timothy Hutton) and his wife, Olivia (Carla Gugino) have a dream that includes a lot of renovation on the way to their forever house. The restoration of Hill House, a sprawling estate with a questionable history,

TV Review: Netflix’s ‘The Haunting of Hill House’

  • Variety
The streaming TV players are leaning hard on Halloween this year, with Hulu launching its monthly horror franchise “Into the Dark” Oct. 5 and Netflix’s “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” coming Oct. 26. While “Sabrina” comes pre-sold to its potential audience, tied in as it is to the “Riverdale” universe both through its source material and its creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Netflix’s other horror series this October has fewer hooks to grab its audience, and announces its ambitions slowly.

The Haunting of Hill House,” coming to the streamer Oct. 12, is a horror series that doesn’t immediately make a case for itself; like the best of the genre, it’s slowly insinuating, building in power as it tells a story of repressed trauma and family discord. It’s an effective scare-fest that is at its best when the tale does more than jolt the viewer.

The story is told through flashbacks
