Synopsis: First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.
I read that book some time last year. I really enjoyed it, especially that creepy ending. I won't go into any details because I don't want to ruin anything for the people who plan on reading it. But I'll have to go see if I can find the movies now and watch them, especially the 1963 movie.
Yeah, I've watched the show now and I agree. The show is nothing like the book, however, I didn't think the show was all that bad. If you know nothing about the show going in and haven't read the book, you might like the show.
