Awesomely Creepy Full Trailer For Netflix's New Horror Series THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE
Netflix has released the full trailer for their series adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s classic 1959 horror novel The Haunting of Hill House and it looks like it’s going to be a great and creepy-ass series! After watching this trailer, I’m completely sold! It looks like they did this iconic ghost story justice. I love the gothic visual style and I also like how they are handling the story.
The series is a modern reimagining the original story and it comes from director Mike Flanagan (Ouija: Origin of Evil, Gerald’s Game). Here’s the synopsis:
The series will explore 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 series is also described as a complex family drama wrapped in a chilling horror story. The series stars Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Carla Gugino (Gerald’s Game), Timothy Hutton (All The Money In The World), Elizabeth Reaser (Twilight), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Healer), Henry Thomas (Better Things), Kate Siegel (Hush) and Victoria Pedretti (Sole).
This novel has already been adapted a couple times before with 1963 film The Haunting and the 1999 remake.
The Haunting of Hill House will premiere on Netflix Friday, October 12th.
