Anyone Watching The Haunting of Hill House?

Based on a book by Shirley Jackson from 1959.  Scariest thing I've seen since the first Michael Myers.  On Netflix.  Don't know how many episodes I'll be able to watch and still sleep.

I'm not watching, but DS is watching at college. He likes shows like this anyway, but he also knows one of the stars (Victoria). Apparently she's really good in it. Smiley Happy

Here is a review that might explain it better.  I think i understand now. 

 

 

 

"Here, the ghosts haunting the house are barely explained, and the biggest mysteries are about the Crains themselves. The journey to the end is not about discovering some ancient sin that has to be rectified, but rather how each of the Crains can deal with their losses, both from decades earlier and more recent."

She plays Nell Craine.  She has been murdered or committed suicide.  Each episode spotlights one of the characters and lets you see how they got to today.

@Retired 08 I'm on episode 3.  The first episode gave me nightmares!  Have you ever seen the first movie made of the book?  One of the scariest movies I've ever seen.  They made a second one which was pretty awful.

It will have to be really great to beat the original "The Haunting", 1963 movie with Julie Harris, et al; vividly remember that film!
