Apparently We Missed Out on Ghost Stories in The Haunting of Hill House — Season 2, Anyone?
For true horror fans, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House is right up their alley. Billed as a “reimagining” of Shirley Jackson’s iconic 1953 novel of the same name, the 10-episode series tells the story of the five Crain siblings who grew up in America’s most famous haunted house and how the home’s deadly secrets still plague them decades later.
Unlike the traditional horror genre, Hill House is a psychological thriller that blends horror and tragedy in a way that creeps under your skin and leaves you emotionally scarred — kind of like the Crain siblings. The show is rich with creepy mysteries, spooky glimpses of ghosts out of the corner of your eye, a large cast of characters, and just the right amount of terrifying scenes that will probably have you losing sleep for days afterward. And according to series creator and director Mike Flanagan, he actually planned to reveal more about the aforementioned spooky ghosts running amok in Hill House, but the scenes didn’t make the cut.
“We had actually written and planned to shoot a complete history of Hill House,” he revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Every other episode would open with about a five-minute history thing narrated by Steven, from his book and we did take from Jackson that the first victim of the house died before anyone had ever really stepped foot in it.”
