(2018) on IMDb

The Haunting of Hill House is a modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson’s legendary novel of the same name, about five siblings who grew up in the most famous haunted-house in America. Now adults, they’re reunited by the suicide of their youngest sister, which forces them to finally confront the ghosts of their own pasts… some which lurk in their minds... and some which may really be lurking in the shadows of the iconic Hill House.

the binge brief & the 88-second 8FLiX review:

The Haunting of Hill House is a 10-episode Netflix Original horror series, based on the Shirley Jackson novel of the same name.


The Haunting of Hill House is currently streaming worldwide on Netflix.


The spoken language is English, and Netflix offers subtitles in several languages, including French, German, Spanish and Italian. There may be more language options available in your area.


The Haunting of Hill House is rated TV-MA. There's blood, and gore, and messy adult-situations that may keep really young people awake all night and make them wet their bed. It's best to put something else on for the the little-ones, while the grownups binge-watch this one. Your teen can probably handle it, though, in spite of the rating.


The Haunting of Hill House, in short, flashes between past and present and tells the story of a fractured family confronting haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it. It's more than just a ghost story.


As the episodes move forward, the narrative unravels. Woven between past and present, each character's story is told in great detail. Having never read the book myself, I'm not sure how close the series resembles the novel. What I can confirm, though, is it's worthy of an all-night / all-day binge. In fact, I've done both and it's much more fun in the dark, at night.


The Haunting of Hill House is not only about shocks and startles. Sitting through nearly 11-hours of non-stop screams and scary things popping out of dark corners is as impossible as making that happen.


There's a "human" element, as well. Addiction, self awareness, and issues that are familiar to most of us all play a significant role to keep the characters interesting and story moving ahead.


You'll not want to look away. Actually, it's quite important to focus on every scene. Otherwise, you may not understand what's happening later on.


Happy bingeing! 🍿 - Nick Runyeard
