Haunting of Hill House
Finished the ten episodes in this series.  I guess I'm just not very well read, but I didn't know there was a book.  Glad of that.  If I'd read it, it might have colored my perception of this long-form movie.  

I like the concept.  Take a book that can't be neatly wrapped up in a two-hour run-time and spread it out over ten hours.  

Everything about this was done well.  This is the kind of thing that seems to be in the Netflix wheelhouse.  Solid performances from every member of the expansive cast.  

I was very impressed.  Toward the end it became less of a horror film and more of a sentimental drama, but even that was handled deftly.  

I liked it a lot.

I thought it was boring and slow moving. I fell asleep during episode 2 and never went back.

Spot on analysis. I liked the show and found myself feeling bad for the ghosts near the end.  


Very well put together.
