  • A new Netflix featurette goes behind the scenes of episode
    six of Netflix’s new horror series, “The Haunting of Hill House.”
  • Writer and director Mike Flanagan said that the episode’s
    camera choreography had to be incorporated into the script
    because it had “18-page scenes without any cuts.”
  • Flanagan said that one of the show’s main sets was

Netflix’s new horror TV series, “The Haunting of Hill House,” has
quickly grown in popularity,
and is one of Netflix’s best-reviewed shows. But one episode
stands out in particular for its immersive long takes. 

Episode six of “The Haunting of Hill House” features a series of
one-shot takes, the longest being 17 minutes, as the episode
flashes between past and present. A new Netflix featurette goes
behind the scenes of the episode with the cast and crew.

When writing the script, writer-director Mike Flanagan said that
he realized “a lot of the camera choreography needed to be
incorporated into the draft itself, because we were doing 18-page
scenes without any cuts.”

Flanagan said that he “wanted an episode that appeared to take
place in real time in one single shot.”

“It turned into a challenge unlike anything else I’ve ever had in
a production,” he continued. “The set actually had to be
constructed with this episode in mind because we knew we had
certain shots that would require us to walk around the house in
its entirety.”

Carla Gugino, who plays the show’s troubled mother Olivia Crain,
said, “Everyone has to be absolutely in sync with each other and
if one thing is off, the take is gone.”
