Carla Gugino, Michiel Huisman, Timothy Hutton, and Elizabeth Reaser star in the upcoming season, which tells the story of a family that spent formative years in one of the spookiest houses in the country. This newest trailer shows how, after one of them dies by suicide, all of them must come back together and reckon with what really happened during their upbringing. In addition to some chilling shots of Hill House itself, it looks like this adaptation is going to prey on these family member’s minds just as much.
Next year will be the 60th anniversary of the Jackson book, which this ten-part Netflix version brings into the present day. The mid-October release date arrives right as audiences might be getting into the Halloween mood, and just enough time to watch it all before “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” premieres two weeks later.
All ten episodes of the series are directed by “Oculus” director Mike Flanagan. It’s his latest major effort before leading a screen version of another work from a horror icon, the upcoming Stephen King adaptation “Doctor Sleep.”
Watch the full trailer (including an instrumental cover of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Our House” that’ll make your skin crawl) below:
“The Haunting of Hill House” premieres October 12 on Netflix.
