Column: What to Binge
Netflix is a great streaming platform, but it can be difficult to find new good shows to binge, so I am here to tell you what's worth your time and what isn’t. This week I watched The Haunting of Hill House and I want to start off by saying I’m not a fan of supernatural horror but this show made me a fan.
The show follows the story of the Crain family who move into Hill House in order to renovate and resell it. Unfortunately, things don’t work out that way and the family begins to experience the malevolent spirits that live in Hill House. This show follows both the past and present stories of the Crain children.
If you're looking for a series that's only mildly frightening this series is not for you. I can truthfully say that I jumped in my seat more than a couple of times while watching this series. At one point of this series I even screamed after a spirit popped out during a fight between characters, it was totally unexpected, no scary warning music or anything, just the characters arguing.
Even though this series is frightening I still highly recommend that you watch it even if you're not a big supernatural horror fan. Not only is the plot incredibly interesting, the ending of this series had an incredible twist that you will not see coming. So if you are on the prowl for a new series to binge I recommend giving The Haunting of Hill House a try, there's a little something for everybody in this series.
