Trivia

A late addition to the makeup effects slate would be a litter of creepy kittens. Instead of using real kittens, the production requested tiny mechanical ones, and at very short notice. Kurtzman remembers feeling the pressure, "I'm like, oh crap!" The kittens would be built by Jason Collins and Mike McCarty at Autonomous FX and would be fitted with air bladders for breathing action. There would end up being some CGI enhancements to the kittens for close-ups when their eyes would bulge out and for when a bug crawls out of one's mouth. Kurtzman fondly recalls the kittens, "I loved them." See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series, the cook-stove/range in Hill House is an electric model from 1940s or 50s, clearly (and wrongly) shown with an exhaust duct extending from behind it and into the wall. Electric ovens don't need exhaust ducts - gas ovens do, to vent the byproducts of combustion. The model in the episode isn't dual fuel. There's no need for this duct at all. See more »

Alternate Versions

The DVD and Blu-ray releases feature extended and/or previously unseen scenes for episodes 1 (The Haunting of Hill House: Steven Sees a Ghost), 5 (The Haunting of Hill House: The Bent-Neck Lady), and 10 (The Haunting of Hill House: Silence Lay Steadily). See more »

Amazing!
14 October 2018 | by MadMadamMollySee all my reviews

I'm quite a horror junkie, and it's so rare to find such an engaging horror series. Fantastic atmosphere, the creepy bits weren't overdone so none of it seemed hokey, acting was spot on, and in the end I didn't feel cheated by the plot line (no holes or strings left dangling, I really hate when that happens). Usually I can tear apart horror movies because of inconsistencies or impractical things but I saw none when I binge watched this show. Just fantastic all around, and I really enjoyed the way it was told, the past and present and how it flowed so well. I recommend this 100%.
