    So how many have seen it so far? I'm not going to lie, I really liked it. But I will be honest, I have never seen the original. For those who have seen both, how does it compare? I think I might need a movie night to watch the original myself.

    I'm not surprised I liked it. One of my all time favs is Stephen King's Rose Red. And Stephen King got a lot of influence for Rose Red from Hill House.

    The original movie is good. The book is better.

    I haven't seen it yet since I don't have Netflix, but from what I've read it sounds more like it's only very loosely inspired rather than an actual adaptation of the book.

    The 1960s film The Haunting [which is an adaption of the book The Haunting of Hill House] is very good. I highly recommend that. Actually I may just have found my Halloween film...

    I'm going to order a book. None of the half price book stores had any :(. I'm about 99.9999999999999999% sure I'll like the book even better.

    True! We Have Always Lived in the Castle is another great book by Jackson. Creepy. Shorter than Hill House.

    I like creepy stories. I think I’ll start a Goodreads list to keep track of all the awesome books recommendations here. So little time, so many books :)

    A friend mentioned the series to me yesterday. They said it was a slow start but they are now 7-8 episodes in and are really liking the "is it psychological or supernatural" vibe.
