The Haunting Of Hill House Has 100 Per Cent On Rotten Tomatoes Already

Netflix's latest horror series, The Haunting of Hill House, already has a 100 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it isn't even out yet.

The series is based on Shirley Jackson's classic 1959 novel of the same name, but it looks like director Mike Flanagan has changed the plot quite a bit for this one.

Described as a slow-building horror, Mike Flanagan's adaptation follows five siblings who grew up in the famously spooky abode, and they are forced to return to the mansion and relive their nightmare all over again.

The original book followed a paranormal investigator, who had rented out the haunted house, bringing with him fellow ghost-hunters and believers of the supernatural.

The 10 episodes will reveal the horrific haunting that occurred in the Crane's childhood home, and the impact it's had on them as adults.

Currently, the series isn't available to stream until the 12th October, which may frustrate horror fans.

Critics on Rotten Tomatoes have been sharing their own reviews of the series.

Daniel D'Addario from Variety wrote: "Slowly insinuating, building in power as it tells a story of repressed trauma and family discord. It's an effective scare-fest that is at its best when the tale does more than jolt the viewer."

Chris Evangelista from Slashfilm said: "The Haunting of Hill House is a frequently scary, surprisingly emotional saga focused on both past and present. Director Mike Flanagan takes Shirley Jackson's iconic haunted house novel and works into something wholly different, yet equally effective."

The official trailer was released last week, and viewers are taken back and forth between the past and present through the children's childhoods, and it's fair to say that things look pretty spooky for them.

"On October 12th, you're expected. The Haunting of Hill House is a modern reimagining of the iconic novel, about 5 siblings who grew up in the most famous haunted house in America," teased Netflix as the series trailer launched.

The Haunting of Hill House stars Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, Timothy Hutton, Elizabeth Reaser, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, and Kate Siegel.

Victoria Pedretti, Lulu Wilson, Mckenna Grace, Paxton Singleton, Violet McGraw, and Julian Hilliard will all appear in the Netflix series too.

The Haunting of Hill House will be streaming on Netflix from the 12th October
