Mike Flanagan’s Netflix series of Shirley Jackson’s classic The Haunting Of Hill House is one of our most highly anticipated horror events of the year and the first proper trailer is…well, it’s brilliant. Very creepy, very dark, and goddammit, we cannot wait for this.
Flanagan (Oculus, Gerald’s Game, Hush) created and directed the series, which stars Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, Timothy Hutton, Elizabeth Reaser, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel and Victoria Pedretti star, as well as Lulu Wilson, Mckenna Grace, Paxton Singleton, Violet McGraw and Julian Hilliard. There’s also a new poster:
“A modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson’s iconic novel, The Haunting Of Hill House explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced 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 shadows of Hill House. ”
The Haunting Of Hill House arrives on Netflix on 12 October. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
