I must admit that I didn’t hear of this television adaptation till I received the Netflix recommendation newsletter on Friday. When I got home–with the English nights wrapping the sky sooner rather than later–I eagerly watched the first two episodes.
As a lover of both Shirley Jackson and The Haunting of Hill House, I was over the moon. The adaptation’s plot strays from the original text, but, so far, I’m digging it. It actually has scared me on a number of occasions.
Although, the weather has warmed up, I think wispy Autumn should return soon. Perfect ambience for such Gothic horror.
