Ever since it’s release, Haunting of the Hill House has received some glaring reviews from the audience all over the world, and nobody can keep quiet about the show due to various reasons. Based on Shirley Jackson’s 1959 Novel of the same name “The Haunting of the Hill House” is probably one of the most chilling series Netflix has to offer to us.
What is the plot about?
The trademark feature of the show is that it follows a plodding built narrative spanning over two generations but still manages to scare the audience with sudden elements of horror.
The premise of the story seems like your everyday typical horror movie stuff were a family decide to move into a new house and experience paranormal activities that lead to a tragedy in the family. However, the execution of this simple story by using powerful tools of narration has been a significant reason for the show’s popularity.
An already dysfunctional family only becomes more broken after experiencing their worst nightmare come to life.
Even though they manage to escape from the Hill House, the events of the past continue to haunt them for the rest of their lives, and they have no choice but to reunite and put an end to their misery.
Burdened with traumas of the past, how the family struggles to find their way to normalcy forms the rest of the plot.
Can we expect a season two?
While other horror series become stagnant and monotonous after a point, Hill House manages to survive through it all by combining fresh elements of horror with the nasty drama that surfaces in a broken family.
Yet another selling point of the show would be the stellar performances delivered consistently by the cast. With the magnificent setting of the Hill House and an experienced director like Mike Flanagan handling the scenes, the recipe for a perfect horror show could never go wrong.
This is why Netflix has approved for another season of the show which will have the same theme as Hill House but with an entirely different family. After the events of the pandemic come to rest we can expect the show to release by the end of this year.
