I found it perplexing and eventually irritating.

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.

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.

This Haunting is so far from the original source material that it's more of a demolition than adaptation.
