The classic supernatural thriller by an author who helped define the genre First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers-and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

"Avant d'aller dormir ce soir, disait Theodora au docteur, je veux être sûre d'avoir vu chaque centimètre carré de cette maison. Pas question de me retrouver dans mon lit sans savoir ce qu'il y a au-dessus de ma tête ou en dessous de moi. Nous devons absolument ouvrir quelques fenêtres, empêcher les...

5.0 Review: The Haunting of Hill House
This was creepy and scary without gore or jump scares. It was almost more psychological because there was never a solid presence or any one thing to fear like in a slasher film/book. It's like going into a dark basement alone at night. Logically you know there is nothing there that can harm you, ...
