Step aside Stranger Things: there’s a new Netflix series scaring the jeepers out of people. It may not feature a Demogorgon, but The Haunting of Hill House – a supernatural drama telling the story of one family plagued by tragedy (and several ghosts) in an old mansion – is giving viewers some serious nightmares.
But despite the scares, most people are really enjoying the series – especially episode six, a 60-minute single-take.
I agree Episode 6 is incredible!!!! BLOWN AWAY! I just kinda sat on episode 6 and thought my GGGOOOODDDD what have I just witnessed!! It was outstanding ! Hang on, outstanding seems like such a LAME word! I have NO words for this level of brilliance! ??
So, how exactly did the crew film episode six? How did the actors deal with this massive continuous shot? What were the rehearsals like? And was the entire thing almost a complete disaster thanks to a critical equipment failure at the last minute?
Funny you should ask: we sat down with the cast of Hill House who explained everything here.
