All the Hidden Ghosts You Missed In The Haunting Of Hill House

All the Hidden Ghosts You Missed In The Haunting Of Hill House

Halloween is nearly here, and for those of who you who just don't quite get the same rush you used to from trick or treating, there is a new series on Netflix that will help you cack yourself.

The Haunting of Hill House was released on the streaming service almost two weeks ago and there have been reports of viewers passing out and vomiting from watching the show, which is surely the ultimate seal of approval for any horror... Even the cast said they were seeing things when they made the series.

The horror is based on Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel of the same name and uses flashbacks to tell the story of the five Crain family siblings, each of whom are dealing with repressed trauma and PTSD following their childhoods growing up in the super creepy Hill House.

But beyond all the unavoidable pass out/puke up/shit yourself moments, there are also 'dozens' of ghosts looming in the background throughout the show, series creator Mike Flanagan has revealed - adding to the near constant sense of dread and creepiness.

Speaking to Vulture, he said: "We actually hid dozens of ghosts throughout the series, in plain sight, in the deep background of shots. We don't call any attention to them, but they're there.

"If you look in a door frame, or under the piano, or behind a curtain in a lot of otherwise ordinary scenes, you'll see someone there."

So whereabouts are these hidden spectres? Time to play a ghostly game of where's wally; look away now if you don't want to know where they are (or just miss them again).

*WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD, EPISODE BY EPISODE*

Episode 1

Even if you only managed to get through the first minute of the first episode, then you were faced with a ghost. Before a character has been introduced, a glimpse of a face can be seen lurking by the stairs.

Did you notice this blurred figure in the background while Steven (and probably you) were panicking about the rattling door knob?

Episode 3

This ghost is particularly sneaky. If you did spot it then no doubt it would have given you the heebie jeebies.

By contrast, this ghost is doing a shit job of being a ghost. It doesn't even look like a ghost and it is just stood there, semi-obscured. They're also stood right in front of the kids, who don't even bat an eyelid, meaning the children are either really rubbish at spotting ghosts, or this ghost is just so rubbish that they aren't even remotely terrified by it.

This is a very hard one. Four ghostly where's wally points for spotting it. Clue - the child is looking in the wrong place.

Is this one scarier because the ghost is bald? Yes. Are all ghosts bald? No.
