Explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past, some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House.
The look and style of the makeups would start with sketches. From there, they would move to the preliminary sculptures. The ghost designs would often change in the sculpture stage and then change once again in the coloration phase. Multiple camera tests with different lighting scenarios were done to achieve Flanagan's desaturated color palette. Kurtzman would say getting there was tough, that they couldn't use the typical red blood tones that one might first choose for split-open heads and other violent injuries. "We really had to pull that back as we tested and find the colors that would work for him." See more »
Even though Hugh's right hand gets severely damaged by a fan while staying at Hill House there's no visible scar in Hugh's hand in present time. See more »
I'm quite a horror junkie, and it's so rare to find such an engaging horror series. Fantastic atmosphere, the creepy bits weren't overdone so none of it seemed hokey, acting was spot on, and in the end I didn't feel cheated by the plot line (no holes or strings left dangling, I really hate when that happens). Usually I can tear apart horror movies because of inconsistencies or impractical things but I saw none when I binge watched this show. Just fantastic all around, and I really enjoyed the way it was told, the past and present and how it flowed so well. I recommend this 100%.
