The Haunting of Hill House, a modern take on the eponymous Shirley Jackson novel, has officially become a classic. The 2018 Netflix original series has garnered praise from critics and audiences alike. Featuring hidden ghosts lurking in the corners of frames, superb acting talent, and skillful direction by Mike Flanagan, the series tells the story of the Crains, a family that flips houses for a living. When the Crains make their way to Hill House, they come to learn that some things cannot be fixed.
The show bounces between two different time periods in the Crains' lives: 1992 and present day. In the 1992 timeline, Olivia and Hugh Crain (Carla Gugino and Henry Thomas) take their five children to live in Hill House as they begin their renovation. While the Crains are at the house, strange incidents and outright tragedies befall the family, informing the lives of the children as adults and their relationship with their father.
Most people who have watched the show may recognize some of the cast members from their previous work, but perhaps other actors flew under the radar. Some of them might even pop in these other shows like The Haunting of Hill House!
