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!
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.
