    I didn't like the first half of the last episode even tho it was trying to show how the house can F--k with your head , it got a little off track , but then i loved the overall ending , maybe its an age thing Helsteeds as i am a fair bit older than you and it was a nice old fashioned ending , mind you dont know if there's going to be a second series i am thinking financially it was a hit so maybe that will push Netflix to a second series , but where will they go ! i wondered if they may do a different timeline and tell the stories of some of the other ghost trapped within the house kind of like a prequel , but who knows .
    Does anyone kind of get reminded of the Stephen king mini series ROSE RED after watching THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE ? to me its a similar type of storyline , that is the nearest type of story to this i can think of and does remind me a little of ROSE RED .

    I loved the series up until the last 15 minutes of episode 10. I felt as if I were watching a Lifetime Movie.

    Lol ScaryCarrie , that was the part of the last episode i liked , i guess its my age , a lot newer productions always seem to slip a shock downer in the last few minutes or a plot twist which then either leaves it on a sour note or then causes a plot line that then leaves the whole thing with some sort of un answered question making the ending undefined , but this series didn't , it actually finished it in a way where you didn't have to to figure out the ending , as i said it must be a generation thing , i still love it and wonder if and how they will continue with a season 2 , which from all the positive feedback will more than likely happen , always good to hear peoples views the world would be so boring if we all thought the same wouldn't it .

    pacman - I am 59 years old, so I don't think it is an age thing. I just wish the series would have remained "spooky" until the bitter end.

    I apologise ScaryCarrie i am 51 so not so far behind you , i see your point but i think they wanted to finish the story clearly which was why maybe they concentrated on story-line against scares in that episode , there was some great scenes in it for me though even as they walk out the house the array of spirits trapped within the house appearing and crowding them as they walked to the door was cool , and the scene where the old house keeper died and joined the rest of the spirits and her own children spirits was a nice touch , basically just you showing the house collecting and trapping even more spirits within its walls , and considering how the 1990s remake ended up which was way to far over the top with CGI effects i was really pleased that they didn't go over the top at the end as that version did , i do have that version and the original 1960s THE HAUNTING as well , but i guess its just down to opinion after all ScaryCarrie , would you like to see a second series ? and if so how would you like that series to deal with HILL HOUSE ?

    pacman - I heard that there will be a second series. Hopefully it will tell the story of how the house became haunted in the first place. I will watch the second series as I liked most the first. You are right - If we all though alike and agreed with one another, life would be boring.

    There is a saying, "We can agree to disagree and still be friends".

    That sounds excellent Scarycarrie , i so hoped that would be the way if there was a second series that that would be the way they would continue on , a prequel with a back story could also add more depth long term to the first series story if they do it right , and with so many ghosts and spirits shown in the few sequences near the end of the series there could be some really good creepy story-lines i hope with such a good base story in series one it leaves so many possible avenues to adapt so many eerie and creepy new characters from the imagined history of Hill House , thank you you for the update .

    I loved it, except Henry Thomas doesn't look anything like Timothy Hutton and Timothy Hutton doesn't look anything like Henry Thomas, they should've just aged Henry with some make up

    THE HAUINTING OF HILL HOUSE - possibly the best made for T.V. GHOST STORY EVER ?
    Thank you darthrott , although they didn't look like each other i didn't feel there character was dis jointed for me , i watched a few behind the scenes featurettes , and all the actors even those like the kids who were from different timelines were encouraged to spend time and hang out and eat with eat other so they could try and watch each other and adopt some of there tropes and manners etc , i think this definitely worked with the kids as i did actually feel at times that they were grown up versions of the younger-selves but had just literally grown older which says a lot for the acting and script , and lets be fair there's not many T.V. series where the actors who do span a period of time very often do look like there younger or older self , hell people who knew me when i was 25 dont recognize me easily if i see them now i am 51 if i am being honest and the same goes for me , i have to double take and some times i haven't said anything or approached anyone in case they are not who i think they are , but i do agree they dont actually look like each other although as i said before i do think they pulled it off with the acting , perhaps there was a good reason why they didn't age the younger actor up , and on that little note how people can change a lot with age one of the greatest little treats for me was the psychiatrist who was treating Nellie , Dr Montague who was the same guy who played Luke Sanderson in the original THE HAUNTING from 1963 the first film based on the original book THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE , a great little nod back to the original classic film ,

    pacman - That is a great bit of trivia. I had no idea they used the same actor from the 1963 movie. Good on them. I too thought that the actors, Timothy Hutton and Henry Thomas did not look similar, but, like you, it did not affect how I perceived the series. I like both actors so I was happy to see them both. I hope the second series answers some questions as to the reasons behind the Haunting of Hill House.
