After directing Hush and Gerald's Game for Netflix, filmmaker Mike Flanagan is returning to the streaming service this fall with a "modern reimagining" of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, which is teased in a set of new images and will premiere just in time for Halloween.

Based on Shirley Jackson's novel of the same name and consisting of 10 episodes, The Haunting of Hill House is written, directed, and executive produced by Mike Flanagan, with his frequent collaborator Trevor Macy also on board as an executive producer. Multiple sources, including Collider, report that The Haunting of Hill House will premiere on Netflix in the US on Friday, October 12th.

According to Collider, The Haunting of Hill House cast includes Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, Timothy Hutton, Elizabeth Reaser, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel and Victoria Pedretti, Lulu Wilson, McKenna Grace, Paxton Singleton, Violet McGraw, and Julian Hilliard.

Synopsis (via Collider): "A modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson’s iconic novel, The Haunting of Hill House explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past — some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House. Created, directed and executive-produced by horror mastermind Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus, Gerald’s Game), The Haunting of Hill House is a complex family drama wrapped in a chilling horror story. Trevor Macy serves as executive producer alongside Flanagan. Meredith Averill acts as co-showrunner and executive producer. Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank executive produce, as well."
