An anthology series centering on different characters and locations, including a house with a murderous past, an insane asylum, a witch coven, a freak show, a hotel, a possessed farmhouse, a cult, and the apocalypse.
Explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past, some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House.
Henry Thomas (young Hugh Crain) wore blue contact lenses through the entire season. The elder Hugh Crain (played by Timothy Hutton) has gray eyes. Hugh enters Hill House a wide-eyed house flipper who never faced a problem he couldn't fix. As time passed, Thomas' bright blue eyes turned into Hutton's steely gray, as the elder Crain has pulled himself away from his children and the events that haunt him to this day. See more »
Throughout the series, the cook-stove/range in Hill House is an electric model from 1940s or 50s, clearly (and wrongly) shown with an exhaust duct extending from behind it and into the wall. Electric ovens don't need exhaust ducts - gas ovens do, to vent the byproducts of combustion. The model in the episode isn't dual fuel. There's no need for this duct at all. See more »
Dont trust the people who are writing under 9 review and calling themselves horror fans.
NEWSFLASH: you dont need to be scared from beginning to end in order to get a good horror movie.
You need to appreciate good characters, good script, good cinematography, good scares (timingly scares!!). You need to build relationship with the characters to feel their horror and their pain and their sufferings. This show does that all. Since the beginning, you bind yourself from one character leading to another character. You call their names out when you see them in a transitional scenes. This show is like "This is US" for horror genre. And damn! How beautifully they connected each single piece by the end as i cried buckets.
People who are slightly complaining about this show, go watch your nightmare on elm street typa sheet, ya winky little twinky with a taste of a rookie noob!
