2018’s horror series, The Haunting of Hill House emerged as a surprise hit on Netflix. Based on Shirley Jackson’s novel, the story follows siblings who, as children, grow up in a house that haunts them forever.
In an interview, Jackson Cohen who essayed a pivotal role in the series, revealed that the director of the series, Mike Flanagan has done a remarkable job with the second season.
“I feel like there’s a sniper from Netflix, I have to be so careful about what I say … It’s truly kind of phenomenal what Mike’s done with the second season. It’s weird, because I think the first one, we were so, not shocked, but it was overwhelming how well it was received and, globally, how massive it became. And so how do you approach a second season and make it just as good, if not better? And Mike’s kind of done it. I go back up in about 20 minutes back to Vancouver to continue and we wrap next week so it will be out by the end of the year. I really, really hope people like it.” He said.
Mike Flanagan is also associated with popular horror films Oculus, Gerald’s Game, Hush and Doctor Sleep among others. He has proven his mettle in the genre of horror and one can anticipate something truly horrifying from the director in the second season of the anticipated series.
