Trivia

Russ Tamblyn, who appears as Nell's therapist in The Haunting of Hill House: The Bent-Neck Lady (2018), played Luke Sanderson in The Haunting (1963), the original adaptation of Shirley Jackson's novel. Furthermore, his character's name in the series is Dr. Montague, named after Dr. John Montague, a main character in Shirley Jackson's novel. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series, the cook-stove/range in Hill House is an electric model from 1940s or 50s, clearly (and wrongly) shown with an exhaust duct extending from behind it and into the wall. Electric ovens don't need exhaust ducts - gas ovens do, to vent the byproducts of combustion. The model in the episode isn't dual fuel. There's no need for this duct at all. See more »

Alternate Versions

The DVD and Blu-ray releases feature extended and/or previously unseen scenes for episodes 1 (The Haunting of Hill House: Steven Sees a Ghost), 5 (The Haunting of Hill House: The Bent-Neck Lady), and 10 (The Haunting of Hill House: Silence Lay Steadily). See more »

Perfect
14 October 2018 | by zack_gideonSee all my reviews

This show is about life and death, the two conditions we all know. Personally watching this show made me cry many times. I'm a guy who never cries. This show is directed perfectly. Acting is also perfect. The mother's soul is acted in a way where I've never been so moved ever. Carla gugino is so incredible that it brought me to tears. She might be the best actress on the planet right now.

I feel different after watching this show. The child actors are amazing as well. Just watch it. Words can't really interpret it in a fair way. Feelings based on your own life experiences will let you experience it in your own way.

I've watched many many tv series in my life and this one blew me away. Netflix is doing it, they're letting true artists control everything. This show makes me yearn for more seasons because every actor including the children make it so good. Enjoy. And be prepared to be jump scared one time really really good :).
