Great Featurette For Netflix's Creepy New Horror Series THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE
I can’t wait to watch Netflix’s new horror series The Haunting of Hill House, which is based on the classic 1959 book by Shirley Jackson. That first trailer that was released completely sold me on the series, but today Netflix has a new featurette for us to watch that dives in the terrifying haunted house ghost story that the series will tell. It includes some new footage from the series and there are interviews with members of the cast and crew talking about the horror genre, the complex characters and the human story that they fill, and, of course, how scary the it’s going to be.
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.
