By now you’ve probably heard the incredible buzz on one of Netflix’s newest shows: The Haunting of Hill House. The ten-episode series, based on Shirley Jackson’s iconic horror novel of the same name, was created, directed, and executive produced by Mike Flanagan, whose credits include Oculus, Gerald’s Game, and Ouija: Origin of Evil. The story explores a group of siblings who grew up as children in what would become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, the family must come face to face with their past in a very ghostly way. Shortly before the series premiered, I got to sit down with Henry Thomas, Victoria Pedretti and Kate Siegel for an exclusive video interview after seeing the first few episodes. They talked about getting to work with Mike Flanagan, how much they knew about the arc of the season before filming began, how the show is a family drama wrapped in the horror genre, how they shot the sixth episode (which was shot like a play with extremely long takes), and a lot more. While there are a lot of great choices on Netflix right now, I absolutely recommend checking out The Haunting of Hill House. It’s extremely well done and absolutely worth your time. The series also stars Michiel Huisman, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Elizabeth Reaser, Carla Gugino, Timothy Hutton, Lulu Wilson, Mckenna Grace, Paxton Singleton, Violet McGraw, and Julian Hilliard.
