  • The cast of Netflix’s hit horror series, “The Haunting of
    Hill House,” revealed what makes the show so disturbing in an
    interview with Spot.
  • Oliver Jackson-Cohen said the show is “grounded in reality.”
  • Kate Siegel said that the family dynamic is the “root fear.”


The cast of Netflix’s new hit horror series, “The Haunting of
Hill House,” has said that they were seeing things and
couldn’t sleep
during filming. But what exactly makes it so

In an interview with Spot, actor Oliver
Jackson-Cohen, who plays the adult Luke, said that the show is
“grounded in reality.” 

“We are talking about ghosts and floating tall people and people
with bent necks and all of these ghosts, but actually you swap
that out for anything else traumatic as a child, and it kind of
holds up,” Jackson-Cohen said. “What’s more terrifying is the
state that this family is in and the dynamics and how these
events have completely shattered and completely changed the

The cast also said that the family aspect of the series is what

“That’s the root fear,” added Kate Siegel, who plays the adult
Theo. “You don’t want to lose your family. And there’s a million

like ghosts or monsters like in ‘A Quiet Place’ and there are
internal things like family dynamics in ‘Hereditary.’ Or there
are both like ‘The Haunting of Hill House.'”

All 10 episodes of “The Haunting of Hill House” are currently
streaming on Netflix.
