So if you’re a horror buff, you should get on the Hill House hype train ASAP.

When you first watch the trailer, The Haunting of Hill House seems like just another horror story with the usual tropes and plot devices. When you start watching, however, you soon get sucked into the world of horror par excellence. And you soon realise why everyone’s obsessing over this brilliant show.

The show uses a popular horror trope where a haunted house is a legit character in itself. But the plot revolves around much more. From the social commentary on disparate gender roles in the 1950’s to the subtle psychological mindfuck each episode builds a genuinely terrifying universe.
