'The Haunting of Hill House' is a fantastic show but let's face it, total nightmare juice.
Director Mike Flanagan managed to put together a compelling family drama under the theme of a horror, meaning that sometimes we were so engrossed in the plot, we led our guard down.
The best example of this is undoubtedly the car jump scare in episode 8, where a tense scene between Theo and Shirley was broke up with the ghost of Ellie jumping in between them. Honestly, we could have woken the dead with our screams.
No doubt it got you too, and many others. One wise guy managed to capture the moment his mum watched it, and well, it's very relatable.
