Title: the HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE (2018)
Post by: RCMerchant on March 17, 2021, 04:51:43 PM
Shirley Jackson's novel is one of the most poetic, haunting, spooky  books I ever read.
This series has NOTHING in common with that.
It's meandering, Dark Shadows soap opera nonsense that borrows a few lines from the book, some character names-and that is it. ARGHHH! It's like calling the 1998 Godzilla movie a Godzilla movie.
It's like calling that frozen mystery meat sandwhich you buy from a vending machine at work a hamburger.
It's s**t.

I agree. It's even worse than the 1999 remake. The novel is perfect, the 1963 film version is a classic, everyone else leave Hill House alone.

I tried watching the series, but found it dull and gave up.

No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against the hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.
