Netflix is set to adapt one of the best known ghost story novels – The Haunting of Hill House.
Here’s a synopsis from the original novel:
The Haunting of Hill House is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a “haunting”; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.
Netflix and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV will come together for the adaption which has received a 10 episode order. This is not the first time this novel has been adapted for TV and film, there previous adaptions in 1963 and later in 1999 both of which shortened the title to The Haunting.
