Mike Flanagan does an excellent job of adapting the famous ghost story into an American gothic drama for a modern audience. A ten-part drama for Netflix, this review covers the first episode only.

One of the best horror series ever made is, without a doubt, The Haunting of Hill House. [Full review in Spanish]

...while the scares have been limited, the work done on building up the characters, their relationships, and what's at stake for them all has been phenomenal.

Most of the best moments from the book make it into the series.

Mike Flanagan really knows how to play with the audience and deliver scares with a great story.

Absolutely gripping from start to finish. Give it a few episodes to build, as it's a slow burn.

It's atmospheric, with a nearly consistent undertone of dread, peppered with just the right amount of jump scares to spice things. Yet, at its heart, The Haunting of Hill House is much more than a ghost story.

Another achievement of Flanagan's vision is that the series never really feels overbearing or long - each episode is crafted to keep the audience engaged and on their toes with existential dream looming around every corner.

The Haunting of Hill House brilliantly showcased relatable characters trying their best to conquer demonstrable villainy inside the house and inside themselves.

The Haunting of Hill House is both an absolutely terrifying ghost story, but it's also an emotionally devastating familial drama. And it's one of the best shows Netflix has released thus far.

The Haunting of Hill House rewards those who aren't afraid to confront their own ghosts, those bumps in the past that still linger, and head back to where it all began. It's absolutely worth booking a room.

Classical, but innovative, precious in the visual but without more squeamishness than necessary, Mike Flanagan distances himself from the cinematic trends with a series full of interesting details. [Full Review in Spanish]

I really thought it was different, and mature. Henry Thomas, great to see him in this show, what a great actor.

The Haunting of Hill House redefines hauntings by centralizing the family and its relationship to the house, over the shock that the house produces. This is a human story and it's their interactions with the ghosts that build the story not just scare.

One of horror's greatest lesbian characters can be found in The Haunting of Hill House.

The show's exploration of collective and individual grief, while often moving, can also feel a little trite and glib. Still, this is an unusually earnest attempt to look at emotional trauma within a horror setting.

The result is deeply creepy but unexpectedly moving, especially in the series' gorgeously paced midsection.
