The Haunting of... [Netflix]

Postby TC on 22/10/18, 06:11:05

wasn't sure how this was going to turn out, given we've already had several attempts at this material and none more than two hours, let alone ten. but i really enjoyed this. very well cast (yes, even henry "eliott" thomas) and stylistic. it's more about how a family deals with their personal demons and grief than anything else, but also ghosts. the house is beautiful - i guess it's basically an event center a little southwest of atlanta, but at some point someone lived here. it's stunning. kind of cracked me up the whole time to think that someone who probably paid a lot of money to have their wedding there is watching this and the things that happen in this house. anyway, i do recommend it. it's a slow burn, more drama than horror, but if you're in the mood for this, watch it.

Reason: changed subject to be for the "haunting of..." series on netflix in its entirety. was "the haunting of hill house"

We are two episodes in and I quite like it so far. A slow, creeping sense of dread, loss and a broken family is at the center so far, not so much spookiness. And I like that.

Wow. Just watched episode 6 and man... Haven't been that impressed by the sheer tehcnical achievement of a tv-show in a long time. An hour long show built on four or five REALLY long scenes with no cuts. Just amazing stuff.

Looks interesting! I just hope it's not a rehash of the first show. And I haven't read the novel either so I have nothing else to compare it to.
