“The Haunting of Hill House”
(Netflix Series Review & Replay of April 2018 Ep)
Margo D. in the pre-show talks about the amazing Netflix adaptation and how it differs from 1963’s version.
Jackson is by far one of the most intriguing authors we have covered and though she only lived to be 48 (spoiler alert) her work has inspired the greats including Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Richard Matheson and Joyce Carol Oates.
Jackson’s complicated life is discussed in this episode along with the influential film (titled The Haunting) directed by the much-admired Robert Wise. Book Vs Movie–which did we like better? Click on the link below to find out!
