The Haunting of Hill House (2018)Created by Mike FlanaganI'm on Episode 6 of this show now, and enjoying it greatly. It's very well done. The only thing is, it's really scary so I have to stop watching it in spurts and switch to a, say, @petermckinnon or @mkbhd video on YouTube, so that I don't get too involved in it!The scares in the show are totally earned and don't come across as cheap at all — and since you care about the characters, it makes it much more effective. The acting and writing is all top notch, and so is the direction and technical proficiency on display. A lot of the scenes are filmed with smooth Steadicam / gimbal type camera moves, and they build suspense and tension very well.Particularly in this episode, there is a long stretch done in what appears to be a single take. It's not, obviously since the sets and the actors change, but it's pulled off so well that it appears seamless, with the aforementioned smooth camera moves guiding the viewer through it all and making one wonder how they executed it.Story wise, there is a lot of mystery that's set up and the non linear way in which information is revealed keeps you constantly engaged. I'm looking forward to finishing it. I suppose at this point (just past halfway), things will start getting even more interesting as they'll begin to wrap up the story threads. Once I complete it, will post my final thoughts. But this is a very highly recommended show from what I have seen so far.I drew Carla Gugino as Olivia from the show. The drawing was done with 0.5 mm 2B mechanical pencil on paper and scanned.#thehauntingofhillhouse #netflix #mikeflanagan #carlagugino #DailyMovieSketch #pencilart #pencil#391 / 13-Nov-18
