The Haunting of Hill House is reportedly one of the scariest fiction ghost series to date. The series made its debut on Netflix recently and has already become one of the most talked about series of the year. Being quite the fan of paranormal fictional stories myself, I decided to give it a watch too and all I can say it is not for the faint of heart. Still, if you are interested to watch a good ghost story over the weekend, be sure to check out our introduction to the series below.
What Do I Need to Know About the Story?
We will not give too much away regarding the story, especially if you intend on watching the series. What we can tell you however, is that the Haunting of Hill House is an adaptation on a novel written by Shirley Jackson. The series tells the story of two siblings, who grew up in a famous haunted house. As adults, they return to the location and face the ghosts that have haunted their minds.
Why Is It Such a Good Series?
To put it in my own words, an enormous amount of detail went into these series. There are ghosts present throughout the series and you might not even notice them at first. There are lots of obvious scares, which one would expect from a series like this. However, I love the subtle and constant feeling of terror one gets when watching this.
I am not the only one who loves the Haunting of Hill House though. Horror legend Steven King has also declared his love for the series, prompting many horror fans to go and watch themselves.
Because of the presence of "hidden ghosts", which I mentioned a little easier, it is more than recommended to watch the series several times. The creators of the series have done wonders incorporating hidden ghosts throughout, so anyone who has excellent perception will love these series even more. I do have to admit, I had to watch more than once to find them all. Can you spot them all on your first watch?
