The Haunting of Hill House – Season 1
Author: Ryan Brookins
The Haunting of Hill House is one of the most intense, emotionally gripping television series that I have ever seen. It’s very rare for a horror genre film or television show to have a compelling storyline that grabs at every fiber of your core. The story follows a husband, wife & their five children that flip homes for a living. The show chronicles their journey after moving into a home teeming with life beyond death. Consistently transitioning between present day and the past, you learn about how the effects of a traumatic night in the home have shaped the family’s present. Each character has their own unique side of the story and you solve the mystery of the Hill House as each person reveals their version and how they now struggle with events transpired from their childhood. You are consistently on the edge of your seat; laughing one minute, the next terrified, the next, so emotionally ravaged that you catch yourself with your mouth agape as the mystery of that mysterious night is told to you. This is hands down my absolute favorite show of all time and I cannot wait to see if there will be a second season.
