The first installment “The Haunting of Hill House” was inspired by the novel of same name by Shirley Jackson. The series was loved worldwide with and received the rating of 93% based on a total of 94 reviews.
Corrine Corrodus of “The Telegraph” called it the most complex and complete horror series of its time. Brian Tallerico said that the horror web series contains most unforgettable horror visuals in any film or television in years. With the love the series got, all its fans had begun to enquire about the second installment too.

With a great twist the story is not at all going close to Crain family any longer, instead this time the show will take the anthology path.
