I actually finished watching this last week... thought it was time to post about it.
Everyone likes a good haunted house movie, the problem is, there are so few of them that are good. There is only so much a filmmaker can do in a max 2 hour movie, and then it's like you have seen this same story done over again a million times... just with new faces and better CGI. The Haunting of Hill House will change things for you.
The Haunting of Hill House is a classic, so it has to be done right, or it will just fail hard. They did so much different that it all seems fresh out of the brain of an amazing author of horror. First... it's a 10 episode series. There is so much character development... I absolutely loved it. It's this family, and there are single episodes dedicated to each family member, so you know how each one of them sees everything in their own way. Many cool things to talk about, but the 2 most interesting is a main character is played by Henry Thomas, but his older self is played by Timothy Hutton. They didn't just try to make the younger guy look older... and any Game of Thrones fan will see Daario in a much different role... I knew I had seen this guy before, but I couldn't place it until I looked it up... shocker.
Not a lot of gross... just a good creepy story. It's Halloween time... binge watch this and you won't regret it.
