A new trailer has dropped for the new Netflix adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House. Moving the story to a contemporary setting, the trailer gives us a tantalizing taste of what to expect this October.
Based on the 1959 Shirley Jackson novel of the same name, the Netflix adaptation makes some narrative changes. Focusing on a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Years later, the siblings are drawn back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past — some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the darkened corridors of Hill House.
The Haunting of Hill House stars Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Carla Gugino (Gerald’s Game), Timothy Hutton (Leverage), Elizabeth Reaser (Twilight), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Emerald City), Henry Thomas (Gerald’s Game), Kate Siegel (Hush) and Victoria Pedretti (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood).
On October 12th, you’re expected. The Haunting of Hill House is a modern reimagining of the iconic novel, about 5 siblings who grew up in the most famous haunted house in America.
Well, that is one effectively creepy-ass trailer. Despite the narrative changes, this looks pretty darn good. Director Mike Flanagan impressed me earlier this year with his stunning take on Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game. It’s pretty safe to say I’m excited for this show and that I think this is in safe hands. Consider me hyped. The cast is awesome, the chills look effective, and the best news in all of this is that it is going to be with us in time to enjoy before Halloween. The Haunting of Hill House airs on Netflix from October 12th.
