AUDIENCE SCORE 92% Critic Consensus: The Haunting of Hill House is an effective ghost story whose steadily mounting anticipation is just as satisfying as its chilling I thought this was by far the scariest series I have ever seen. And it had more scares per episode than most horror films I have ever seen. A touching powerful family drama set against the backdrop of a supposedly haunted house. The acting of the adults and children are excellent across the board. Standouts are Henry Thomas, Carla Gugino as the parents. It is absolutely fantastic and terrifying.
