James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17, is the cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father.
Explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past, some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House.
Henry Thomas (young Hugh Crain) wore blue contact lenses through the entire season. The elder Hugh Crain (played by Timothy Hutton) has gray eyes. Hugh enters Hill House a wide-eyed house flipper who never faced a problem he couldn't fix. As time passed, Thomas' bright blue eyes turned into Hutton's steely gray, as the elder Crain has pulled himself away from his children and the events that haunt him to this day. See more »
Throughout the series, the cook-stove/range in Hill House is an electric model from 1940s or 50s, clearly (and wrongly) shown with an exhaust duct extending from behind it and into the wall. Electric ovens don't need exhaust ducts - gas ovens do, to vent the byproducts of combustion. The model in the episode isn't dual fuel. There's no need for this duct at all. See more »
I don't want to believe that a perfect horror series does exist. My first-ever review!
I have never written a review before. This series undoubtedly deserves my first. I have never watched a show that is perfectly written, cast, directed, and executed. This one will always be my favorite series of all time with companies like Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, and Black Mirror.
Thank you, every single person involved in the making of this phenomenal series, which I want to binge-watch and also don't want to finish it without taking the time to truly appreciate it!
