“She shivered and thought, the words coming freely into her mind, Hill House is vile, it is diseased; get away from here at once."

Dr. John Montague, a doctor of philosophy and anthropology, is on a mission to evidence of a supernatural presence in our world and visits Hill House, a historically "haunted" house. He invites three others (Eleanor, Theodora, and Luke) to stay with him to help him in his research.

While this story isn't a classically haunted house story, it definitely has some major creepily, unsettling vibes that made it just as scary.

Now on to watch the Netflix show! From the trailer, it doesn’t look anything like the book, but everyone seems to really enjoy it.
