November 7, 2018
Mike Flanagan puts together a project that pulses with an eerie but naturalistic vibe, further concurring that horror can not only be great, but it can be fantastic.
November 1, 2018
What could easily have been turned into a quick series of jump scares has been turned by Mike Flanagan into an all-too-real tale of grief and how to handle it.

The Haunting of Hill House is a new high watermark for episodic horror, not just standing up to past adaptations... but demonstrating that a show can be both dramatically complex and relentlessly scary.
November 1, 2018
This is an original and fascinating look at family drama, one that refuses neat and tidy endings and begs us to consider what we ultimately do with a home we can never truly leave.

It's the pain, the loneliness, the desperation that grips their strained faces, pools in their eyes, and reaches across the screen to make you turn back on the lights. Now that, that feels real.
October 26, 2018
What is perhaps most beautiful about The Haunting of Hill House is the way it both subverts the haunted house genre and then wholly genuflects to its cliches.
October 25, 2018
The horrors only grow, the jump scares keeping pace with an ever accelerating plot. And in its crescendo we are made to confront those things we would prefer to remain only objective observers to.
October 25, 2018
Every performance contributes to the family dynamic and helps to build anxiety throughout the series.

October 25, 2018
With its exceptional melding of family drama and expertly-executed genre thrills, The Haunting of Hill House shouldn't be missed whether you're a card-carrying genre fan or not.
October 24, 2018
As a tale of what happens when the ties that bind are the same ones that gag you, and scar you, and occasionally strangle you to death, it's absolutely terrifying.
October 24, 2018
Over 10 episodes, it's stylish, moving, and sinister, riddled with ghosts both literal and metaphorical.
October 24, 2018
Although the series starts slowly, it eventually develops into a riveting story, revealing a few horrifying secrets along the way and finishing on a surprisingly emotional note.
October 23, 2018
A perfectly matched narrative, emotional and technical puzzle. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 23, 2018
The show wisely does not decide to try and answer all the mysteries it presents to the audience. Sometimes there are no easy answers, in life and in television.

It isn't the words that stick with you... It's the sight of the Bent-Neck Lady...
October 22, 2018
Like this year's best horror film Hereditary, the chilling new Netflix series does an excellent job of wringing as much handwringing spooky boo-boo out of everyday events as it possibly can.
October 20, 2018
What before ended on a note of sinister unease now leaves us with hope. And I guess we can be fine with that. There is no such thing as too much hope.

Fantastic, all around. The scares were there, subtle, and this show freaked me out. So good, and so well acted.
October 19, 2018
Stream it for sure. Like with any horror movie, there's a lot of build up in the first couple of episodes, but when The Haunting of Hill House gets rolling it doesn't stop.
October 19, 2018
Mike Flanagan's Netflix adaptation of Jackson's work makes a family-the Crains-and their twisted collective history the narrative thread. But he manages to keep the focus on engaging female characters while building out a new world.
