Netflix and Mike Flanagan’s modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson’s “The Haunting of Hill House” is basically the best thing to happen to genre TV since “True Detective” Season 1. High praise? Watch the show’s 10 episodes, and THEN tell me I’m wrong.
Anyhow, if you’ve seen the series, then you were no doubt blown away by the 6th episode, which was comprised of a series of long takes. For someone who cares about such cinematic techniques, I was in heaven during the episode’s running time.
And today Netflix has released a new featurette detailing the making of the Episode 6. Give it a watch below, and then make sure to let us know what you think in the comments section or on Facebook and/or Twitter!
Created, directed, and executive-produced by horror mastermind Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus, Gerald’s Game), “The Haunting of Hill House” is a complex family drama wrapped in a chilling horror story.
