That sweet 100% Rotten Tomatoes score promises to get your blood pumping.

WHATCULTURE – Netflix’s latest horror series has got a selection of critics all hot under the collar already, achieving a highly coveted ‘100% Fresh Rotten Tomatoes’ score since September 25th with more reviews still set to roll in. Whilst it’s early days for the new addition to Netflix’s vast bank of originals, there’s plenty working in the TV show’s favour that suggests the favourable attention isn’t simply a media ploy before release.

The streaming giant has been producing a steady flow of excellent television content for the past few years, banking on titles such as Stranger Things, Dark, and Mindhunter for solid creepy content; and that’s to say nothing of the runaway success of shows like Orange is the New Black and their take on Jessica Jones and other Marvel properties. Netflix know what they’re doing when it comes to creating engaging, unique franchises, so it should come as no surprise that The Haunting of Hill House is lining up neatly with their dedicated Originals brand.

What makes The Haunting of Hill House that much more interesting is that is already has a solid source material. Based on Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel of the same name, the narrative is described by Netflix as: “flashing between past and present, a fractured family confronts haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it.”

Reimagining Jackson’s classic tale of a paranormal investigation revolving around a haunted house, the TV adaptation seems like it will focus on the energy and tone of the Gothic tale rather than its storyline outright – offering something for fans old and new in the process.

The Haunting Of Hill House has appeared on screen before however, with both a faithful 1963 version and a less appealing 1999 version that then served as the basis for Scary Movie 2. Both were simply titled ‘The Haunting’, so retain an air of separation from this new project, which in the case of the later movie can only be a good thing for most watchers. The fact that the novel has so much potential for recreation, as well as a few attempts already under its belt, is obviously a plus for some impressive writing as well.

In today’s anything-goes cinema, when filmmakers can explicitly show just about anything — beheadings, decapitations, Russell Crowe singing — it’s cool to see a director who understands the power of restraint.

 

Karyn Kusama built a buzz with indie hit “Girlfight,” then worked with two studios on a couple films that bombed — “Aeon Flux,” a misfire with Charlize Theron, and “Jennifer’s Body,” a teen-horror film written by Diablo Cody that went off the rails.

 

With “The Invitation,” Kusama gets back on track with a slow-burn movie that holds everything back and keeps holding some more. Tension builds in deliciously unsettling, nerve-jangling ways until the last 10 minutes or so — and the getting there is worth it, especially a genuinely haunting, brilliantly composed final shot that’ll stay with you.

 

Before reaching its shocking end, “The Invitation” explores coping with grief and questions of friendship and spirituality in ways that feel honest and true for each character, except you’re never quite sure whom to believe.

 

The entire film is set at posh Hollywood Hills home of David (Michiel Huisman) and Eden, (Tammy Blanchard), a couple that disappeared to Mexico for a couple years, leaving friends confused and bewildered.

 

After returning, they issue a dinner invitation to those friends, including Will (Logan Marshall-Green) — Eden’s ex — and his new girlfriend.
