Streaming services have been kind to horror fans, and The Haunting of Hill House is yet another classic addition to the growing library of quality horror shows. Shows like The Haunting of Hill House are not just good for scares - they also spoil us with gripping drama and quality storytelling.
Sometimes bingeing a show this good can leave a void in your soul as the credits appear for the last time. In order to avoid post-binge depression, try watching one (or a few) of these terrifying shows next to help you cope with ending of the first chapter of the Crain family's story.
Nothing will quite replace the gothic atmosphere of Hill House, but these shows might be able to quench your thirst for horror and family drama.

The Enfield Haunting is a 2015 British miniseries adapted from Guy Lyon Playfair's book This House Is Haunted. The book is based on the real-life stories of the residents of Enfield House.
Set in 1977, the story unfolds as the residents of a North London public housing building start to experience poltergeist-like activity in their home. Much like Hill House, this miniseries examines a broken family haunted by both ghouls and group hysteria, leaving viewers questioning what is real - and what isn't.
The three-episode series is streaming on Hulu.
