The Netflix horror adaptation of Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House is basically This Is Us for the supernaturally cursed. Sure, there are a few jump scares and barely hidden Hill House ghosts, but at the show's heart, the most devastating scenes center on a father's inability to protect his children from the truth about their traumatic childhood.
Series director Mike Flanagan left no detail untouched - from the meticulously crafted set to the tiny Easter eggs threaded throughout. His depiction of family trauma is so unbelievably disturbing, it's no wonder the cast deeply felt its effects. The behind-the-scenes details of Hill House's set may surprise you, whether or not you lost it during the final episode.
