Netflix: The Haunting of Hill House

Netflix has announced that they are developing a untitled horror series which will be a modern-day adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s classic 1959 novel, The Haunting of Hill House. The series is being produced by Steven Spielberg and his Amblin TV and it's being created by Mike Flanagan, the filmmaker behind Ouija: Origin of Evil, Oculus, Hush and the upcoming film adaption of Gerald’s Game. He will write, direct, and executive produce the series.

The streaming service has ordered ten episodes of the series and as a fan of the horror genre, I'm excited to see what comes of it. The Haunting of Hill House has already been adapted twice before as films, the first was in 1963 and the second was the Liam Neeson version released in 1999. Both of them were titled The Haunting. For those of you who need a reminder of what the story entails:

   The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a 'haunting'; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

With Spielberg and Flanagan working on this project and Netflix giving their filmmakers the freedom to realize their visions, this new series could be a creepy cool horror experience.

I've seen both the prior films & enjoyed them both. I may have to give this series a try.

I'll try a couple of episodes when it comes out! but I'm not holding my breath that it will be any good.
