Netflix released a half dozen images of their upcoming haunted house series The Haunting of Hill House this morning. What is especially important about sharing them with you today is that this series was created, directed and exec-produced by Mike Flanagan.
We are enormous fans of Flanagan and his body of work. His handling of mood and tension are a perfect fit for the haunted house genre. We are very excited about his involvement in this show.

The eternal Carla Cugino, star of Flanagan's Gerald's Game, makes an appearance. There is also a shot of Game of Thrones' Michiel Huisman with Timothy Hutton in there as well.
