The Haunting of Hill House

The Haunting of Hill House ★★★★★

Ok I only went into this expecting to get a little bit spooked at most and I was NOT ready for how emotionally attached I became to literally every character. 

This is one of the best tv shows I’ve seen in a very long time. The characters, camera work and performances were all so impeccable, I’m in awe. The casting for this was so well done and everyone played their characters so perfectly, I felt so much love and sympathy for all of them in a different way. Every scary scene was tense and anxiety educing, exactly how you would expect a horror show to be. I loved the flash forwards/backs, I think they added so much suspense and mystery to it and made me so much more interested, the transitions between them were also very cool. I really enjoyed watching all of the pieces come together. 

For me, personally, its hard to get into horror things because I think it can fall into a hole of just trying to scare you and not much else, but this did managed to scare me... and break my heart.... and make me smile (a lot less than everything else but I guess thats the point lol) and I appreciated the production a whole lot. Just so so good. Truly one of the best netflix shows yet and I hope everyone gives this as much praise as the others.
