The Haunting of Hill House (1963) – Shirley Jackson

Having just finished the amazing Netflix series (seriously, watch it) and loving the Robert Wise film, I felt it was time to re-read the original novel, something I’m sure I hadn’t done for about twenty years. In fact, I think I read it just before that abomination by Jan De Bont was released in 1999….

Jerry Lewis: 10 Films Collection
