The Haunting of Hill House

The Haunting of Hill House ★★★★

Family ties tangled and possessed. A work of horror at its most dramatic and personal, relayed on a human level and constantly creeping and building to revelation and terror. So much of this feels immensely unnerving but deeply relative, finding strength in the people at the centers of an age-old ghost story, the familial associations warm and heartbreaking. This feels so emotionally heavy that it almost feels like a sprawling epic of horror expertise despite its smaller scale. Look beyond the corner, look beneath the light. Some people are born with tragedy in their blood.
