This October looks to be a fantastic month for subscribers of the hit streaming platform Netflix. In keeping with the theme of the season, Netflix is offering a whole host of horror related content. Additions include Netflix original movies like Apostle and Malevolent, as well as the Netflix original series Haunted. 

Also making its way into the Halloween lineup is a brand new series that is a re-imagining of the classic 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House. Shirley Jackson’s novel has garnered film adaptations twice so far, once in 1963 and once in 1999 (both films are simply called The Haunting). The new series, created by horror guru Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush, and Gerald’s Game), will consist of 10 episodes, and will premier on Netflix October 6th. Check out the brand new trailer below!

 

Synopsis:

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.

About Chuck Ransford 46 Articles
Ah now for the one thing everyone loathes...writing about themselves! Well for starters, my name is Chuck, and I am a south Jersey transplant living in Amish country. I’ve been a horror fan since 5th grade, about 16 years ago. My horror fandom started when I got my hands on a copy of Jay Anson’s novel The Amityville Horror. The book terrified me, and I knew I just had to watch the movie. An older cousin of mine had a copy of it, and that was the genesis of my obsession with the genre. Over the years I have expressed my horror fandom in many ways. Since about 2005 I have been regularly attending horror conventions. These have been great ways to amass collectibles, movies, and to meet some of my favorite celebrities. My best friend Mike and I used to run our own horror blog years ago, and we also dabbled in script writing. I am looking forward to going back to writing about horror, something I’ve always loved. When I’m not working (I work at PNC Bank), my non-horror interests are studying theology and economics, watching Japanese tokusatsu, and doing play-by-play commentary for professional wrestling. I’m also a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society and singing in a Barbershop quartet. Oh, and I’m probably the biggest fan of the Golden Girls you’ll ever meet. My top 5 horror flicks (definitely subject to change): 1. Cannibal Holocaust (1980) 2. Basket Case (1982) 3. Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) 4. The Beyond (1981) 5. Dawn of the Dead (1978)
