​People Are Being Sick From Watching 'The Haunting of Hill House'

​People Are Being Sick From Watching 'The Haunting of Hill House'

Not all of us fare particularly well with horror and thriller flicks, often left cowering behind the sofa before bracing ourselves for two weeks of no sleep.

But it's Halloween time, which means that we've not really got a choice... 'Tis the season to feel seriously spooked.

And bringing a whole new meaning to the idea of 'Netflix and Chill' is a new show that's been dubbed by GQ as 'one of the most truly chilling of all time'.

Since being added to the streaming service just four days ago, The Haunting Of Hill House has proven so scary that people are saying they've been vomiting, close to passing out and unable to sleep.

The series is based on Shirley Jackson's novel of the same name and uses flashbacks to tell the story of five siblings in the Crane family, each of whom are dealing with repressed trauma, family anguish and PTSD following their childhoods growing up in the super creepy Hill House.

Over the course of 10 episodes, the programme reveals the horrific haunting that took place at the Cranes' childhood home, and the impact that it's had on them as adults. In short: not good.


One person wrote on Twitter: "Haunting of Hill House is making me terror vomit in joyful confusion. So I love it."

Another commented: "The Haunting of Hill House on @NetflixUK is one of the most terrifying, nail biting, hide behind the couch, don't even breath, I'm going to pass out from fear things I have ever watched. In. My. Life."

A third said: "I had to take a break from The Haunting of Hill House."

Another wrote: "Who is watching The Haunting of Hill House because I need to talk about it, potentially in the middle of the night when I can't sleep because I'm now afraid of the dark."


I mean, I'm not sure I fancy it if I'm perfectly honest. I'm still a bit freaked out from watching The Blair Witch Project as a kid, and we all know that was rubbish.

If you're not sure you're strong enough either (I won't tell, don't worry), you can try out some of Netflix's other seasonally creepy films and TV shows.

Last month the streaming service added 1980 Stephen King classic The Shining to its service - which is formidable, sure, but essential - and will also launch a whole host of big-name originals at the end of the month.
