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.
