Much of the credit for the show's acute level of creepiness goes to the cast, with charismatic child actors matched perfectly to their adult incarnations, of which Brit Oliver Jackson-Cohen is the standout.

Hill House falls victim to a sagging middle section and could have benefitted from a smaller episode count. Nevertheless, the end result still adds up to a spooky series that hits the streaming service at just the right time.

Hill House's production design is stunning, creepy, and clever-the house has a kind of Overlook Hotel thing going on, where it's enormous but also confining.
October 14, 2018
The aesthetic of The Haunting of Hill House makes it work not only as horror TV, but also as a deft adaptation of Jackson.
October 13, 2018
A literary classic is adapted into a modern masterpiece of trauma and terror.
October 12, 2018
Unlike Gerald's Game, Flanagan's greatest strength here is when he's playing with the story as opposed to being slavishly devoted to it. It's a reimagining for an era that doesn't know what that word means anymore.

I found it perplexing and eventually irritating.
October 12, 2018
What's remarkable is that Flanagan, thanks largely to stellar performances from the ensemble, manages to make all this sibling drama feel suspenseful rather than wearying.

Pay special notice to Mckenna Grace, who inhabits the young Theodora (or Theo) with a wisdom way beyond her years.

The Haunting Of Hill House is not only a worthwhile update but one of the best horror TV series we've seen in years.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 12, 2018
The best haunted-house stories aren't scary because they're filled with a long lineup of ghosties and ghoulies. They're scary because they want something from the haunted.

Its real potential lies in breaking the mold more than reapplying it. It's the people who haunt viewers more than the ghosts, and emphasizing the stories of the living is what makes Netflix's horror show come alive.

The Haunting of Hill House is a surprisingly emotional family drama that mixes in jump scares to keep the blood pumping in between tears falling.

With so many hours to fill, things get nuttier, and not necessarily in a good way.
October 12, 2018
Hill House is fiercely slow-burning, but can also unleash a deluge of frights at a moment's notice. Audiences won't want it to stop, and it won't...for ten episodes, anyway.
October 12, 2018
Things were going so well. Now here I am, out back in the cold of night, burying it.
October 12, 2018
Flanagan has made an intelligent, engaging supernatural story in which the tension doesn't mount so much as stop and start, and occasionally sputter.
October 12, 2018
It's not just the family premise that makes this series so brilliant, but the characters as individuals themselves. Flanagan spends entire episodes giving the audience deft yet scathing vignettes of his characters' lives - and as always, it's a winner.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

The real marvel of The Haunting Of Hill House is in its execution. Plot threads that initially may seem to go nowhere, or seem obvious, actually have welcome, complicated layers that reveal the relatable family dynamics...

[It] unfolds at too plodding a pace... But once the series establishes its storytelling approach, it hooks you in, compelling you to keep watching until certain mysteries are resolved.
