Haunting of Hill House gets a Netflix Adaptation

One of Vermont’s most famous SF/F writers is Shirley Jackson, who lived in the Bennington area. She was a prolific author, and while she lived in Vermont, she wrote one of her more famous novels, The Haunting of Hill House inspired in part by Jennings Hall on the campus of Benningotn College.

The novel has gotten its share of adaptations — films in 1963 and in 1999, but a new adaptation is on its way: Netflix will release a TV show based on the novel, which will debut on October 12th on the service. According to Entertainment Weekly, it’ll follow a family in the past and in the modern day as “they deal with the ghosts, both literal and figurative, that have come to haunt them.”
