Oh, how I love the “things that go that go bump in the night”.
Ever since my mother read to me from The Fireside Book of Ghost Stories, I have had a goose-bumped affection for the supernatural. Shirley Jackson’s 1958 novel, THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, is a jewel in the crown of America’s contribution to paranormal literature.
It has been filmed twice under the title THE HAUNTING; in 1964 🙂 and in 1999 🙁 and was the inspiration, if not the basis, for the 2018 Netflix series under the original title. Jackson’s novel is unique in that her house is not haunted by the spirits of the departed. Her house IS the haunting. Does the house merely playback unhappy events from its past, like an old recording on repeat? Or is the house a sentient entity, preying on the emotional weakness of its inhabitants, causing them to self destruct? You decide.
Now sit back and relax (if you can), hold the hand of the person next to you (if you must), and enter the world of Hill House. Oh, by the
way, don’t forget to check under your seat!
Feel the Dread,
