Plot Synopsis

Based on Shirley Jackson's book of the same name, THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE centers on five siblings -- Steven, Shirley, Theodora, and twins Nell & Luke -- who grew up in the most famous haunted house in America. Now adults, they're reunited by the suicide of their youngest sister, which forces them to finally confront the ghosts of their own pasts...some which lurk in their minds...and some which may really be lurking in the shadows of the iconic Hill House. Flashing between past and present, a fractured family confronts haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it. The series opens with a skeptical Steven investigating a ghost story for his latest novel, and then receiving a call from his sister that triggers a chain of fateful events. A devastating family tragedy stirs memories of traumatic losses, reminding Shirley of her first brush with death -- and awakening long-dormant fears. Keenly perceptive Theo sees shades of herself in a troubled young patient, a girl who's haunted by the menacing grin of "Mr. Smiley." On Friday, October 12, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the 10-episode first season of THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE.
