Netflix Original Content: The Haunting of Hill House

This is one series that grabs your attention and just doesn’t let go until you’ve journeyed through the haunted lives of 7 people permanently affected by the ghosts of the past

If you’re looking for something that’s beyond creepy this season, Netflix’s newest series has it all. Floating bowler hat nightmares combine with walking corpses to bring a horror series that will keep you up until it’s all over. We won’t give away any of the good parts, but it’s safe to say that The Haunting of Hill House is one of the best horror series you’ll see this year.

Netflix has outdone themselves with a rich cast of characters who must confront the demons that plagued their youth as adults. From the demented mind of Mike Flanagan, director of Gerald’s Game, Hush, and Ouija: Origin of Evil, this 10-part series brings the best of every haunting story to one place. The story follows the Crain family as they move into Hill House. Intent on fixing up the property and selling it at a profit; the family makes the decision to live there to save money during the rehab.

The young couple, along with their 5-children, do everything in their power to continue in spite of the strange events that continue to happen during their stay. As the story unravels, we discover that each of the children possesses some sort of psychic gift that connects them to the evil residing in the home with them.

After their mother supposedly kills herself in the house, their father spirits them away to a hotel in the middle of the night. From here, the children go on to start a new life with their aunt—still damaged and dealing with the apparitions of the past. Nellie and Luke, the twins, both grow up with significant issues. Luke turns to drugs, and Nellie eventually returns to the house where she, too, commits suicide. Only, the twin connection tells Luke that the situation was very different from the coroner’s report.

It only gets better from here. This is one series that grabs your attention and just doesn’t let go until you’ve journeyed through the haunted lives of 7 people permanently affected by the ghosts of the past.
