Okay, fine, I guess I’m going to have to watch The Haunting of Hill House.
Ever since the nightmare-inducing trailer came out I’ve been half-intrigued, half-wary (I’m embarrassingly easy to scare when it comes to supernatural, jumpy stuff). But now Stephen King has waded in, so I guess that seals it.
On Tuesday night, the King of horror posted the following tweet.
THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, revised and remodeled by Mike Flanagan. I don’t usually care for this kind of revisionism, but this is great. Close to a work of genius, really. I think Shirley Jackson would approve, but who knows for sure.
