The Haunting Of Hill House Trailer Has Arrived And It's Horrifying
Netflix has just dropped a two minute long trailer for The Haunting of Hill House, a modern re-imagining of the iconic horror novel.
And judging by the trailer, the new series will be absolutely terrifying when it drops onto the streaming site next month on 12th October.
Director Mike Flanagan has adapted Shirley Jackson's classic 1959 novel for this horror series, although it looks like he has changed a fair bit of the plot.
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 Haunting of Hill House was later adapted into two different films in 1963 and 1999, but it looks like Netflix is taking its series into a slightly different direction.
This time,The Haunting of Hill House will centre of five siblings who grew up in the famously spooky abode, and they are forced to return to the mansion and relieve their nightmare all over again.
Netflix's series will see the siblings reunite in the 'face of a tragedy' ready to 'confront the ghosts of their past'.
"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.

Throughout the trailer, 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.
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 series will consist of 10 episodes, and you'll be able to stream the first in just a couple of weeks.
